Relationship and Sex Education Policy Consultation
Dear Parents and Carers,
At Belmont Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is a core subject taught throughout the school. Our curriculum aims to develop knowledge and skills that will enable our pupils to live a safe, happy and successful life. The content of the PSHE curriculum has been developed from the Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning PINK Curriculum. It covers three main strands: Relationships, Health and Well-being, and Living in the Wider World. A key aspect of this is Relationships and Sex Education.
As many of you will be aware the Department of Education announced changes to the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum following a nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the update requirements. Due to Covid 19 schools have been able to delay the start of this until the summer term 2021. The Government guidance can be found below.
This means that we have been reviewing our Relationship and Sex Education curriculum and policy and are keen to hear your views.
We would be very grateful if you could take the time to look through all the information below and then take a short, but important survey, as part of the consultation process. The deadline for the consultation is 8th January 2021.
Thanks to staff, parents and carers and governors for their ongoing support to make our school such an outstanding one!
The school can provide a paper copy of the information on this website to parents/carers free of charge.
