    Relationships and Sex Education Policy


All our pupils will have in-depth understanding of themselves and of the diversity of people in the world to give them the knowledge, skills and attributes to manage their own life, now and in the future.   

Our PSHE curriculum is created from the Cambridgeshire Primary Personal Development Programme. Digital Safety is taught through the Project Evolve scheme. The Cambridgeshire scheme was chosen because it ensures our children receive PSHE lessons that are relevant and purposeful. Areas are built upon as the children progress through the school in an age-appropriate manner. It gives children skills across a range of areas including emotional, health and communication. 

They will also have an in-depth knowledge of relationships, health, their bodies, their community and how to stay safe.   The RSE aspect of the curriculum was introduced following consultation with children, parents, children and stakeholders to ensure it meets Government requirements and our children’s needs.   

The curriculum covers all areas, which are:  

  • Myself and My Relationships  
  • Citizenship  
  • Healthier and Safer Lifestyles.
