Relationships, Health and Sex Education

    From September 2020, the DfE (Department for Education) introduced compulsory Relationships, Health and Sex Education for all children in England and Wales. Primary settings are not requires to teach sex education but it is encouraged. Here at Markeaton Primary School, we choose to teach sex education in Year 5 & 6.

    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 the policy and the curriculum content.

    Markeaton Primary School consulted with parents and carers in June 2019 online via Survey Monkey due to Covid-19 circumstances. Parents and carers were asked questions with regards to the RSE policy and government requirements and these were used to inform the policy before being passed to governors and published. An FAQ page was created for future reference.
