PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Consultation December 2023
We review our Relationships, Sex and Health Education Policy every year and consult with our stakeholders every two years. As we have now completed our review and consultation with staff, we now want to consult with other stakeholders including our parents and carers. We have attached the Relationships, Sex and Health Education Policy November 2023 V3 below for you to review and provide feedback. The consultation will run from the 4th December to 4th January 2024. If you have any views or feedback about the policy and its contents, please share your views via email to [email protected] for the attention of the Headteacher, Mrs. Thorpe and the PSHE Subject Leader, Mrs. Lange.
Once the consultation period is over, we will share the final policy with all stakeholders.
The parents and carers of our Year 6 pupils will be able to view the materials and discuss content with the PSHE Lead and class teachers from 8th January 2024 - 25th January 2024 before teaching commences on 29th January.
The parents ands carers of Year 4 pupils will be invited in to school to view the materials and discuss content with the PSHE Lead and class teachers from 11th March 2024 - 22nd March 2024 before teaching commences on 15th April 2024.
Here is a copy of the latest policy which we are consulting on and would like your views and feedback on:
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.
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 equipped 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.
