Relationship and Sex Education
The PSHE subject leader and headteacher are responsible for the organisation, monitoring and evaluation of RSE at the academy. RSE is delivered through several areas of the curriculum and is taught explicitly through a range of subjects including science, religious education, computing, physical education, PSHE & citizenship and through assemblies.
Where RSE is taught within the curriculum, it will be delivered by the class teacher and therefore usually within a mixed gender class. Assemblies are delivered by teaching staff, including the headteacher. Visiting speakers from the community make a valuable contribution to the RSE curriculum. Their input is carefully planned and monitored to fit into and complement the curriculum. Teachers are always present during sessions delivered by visiting speakers and the teachers remain responsible for the delivery of the RSE curriculum.
PSHE and RSE is taught using the Jigsaw schemes of work and resources. This scheme is progressive and is centered on a values-based and ‘Growth Mindset’ approach. The scheme promote positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.
Further information regarding our RSE curriculum can be obtained from the school office.
