PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Consultation
From September 2020, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.
As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content. This was delayed to September 2021 due to COVID19.
We attended RSE training with the East London Early Years and School Partnership and 'Train the Trainer' sessions to ensure our RSHE subject leaders where equiped with the latest knowledge and could train all staff to a high standard. As part of this training, we worked with local religious leaders and other members of the community to ensure we had considered the views of a range of people before forming our policy.
Langtons Junior Academy completed the consultation process with our stakeholders in December 2020. We shared our draft policy with parents, staff and governors and all stakeholders were invited to give feedback and share their views before the final policy was agreed.
