From September 2020, the Department for Education (DfE) have made Relationships Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools. The new guidance focuses on a number of important areas, including forming healthy relationships and keeping safe in in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, first-aid and changes adolescent body. To access this guidance, please use the DfE Expectations link below.
The DfE have also recommended that schools teach age appropriate Sex Education in primary schools. At Langold Langold Dyscarr Community School, we have chosen to teach Sex Education in Year 6. All of these lessons will follow the Christopher Winter Project scheme of work, which is a nationally approved resource.
Any additional resources we might use in this area will be available to view at our parent workshops, which will take place in the Spring Term.
Relationships, Sex and Health Education is taught as part of our wider Personal, Social, Health, Economic Education curriculum, as well as National Curriculum subjects such as Science.
