You may already be aware that, as a part of your child’s educational experience at Cheslyn Hay Primary school, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development. Part of this is taught through our programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives our young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
From September 2020 the Department for Education is making Relationships Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools. Although the government have now said it is compulsory, this area of education already makes up part of our PSHE programme which we follow from Entrust Education’s scheme of work. For more details on the governments changes please read the attached leaflet below.
Schools are required to consult with parents when developing and reviewing their policies for Relationships Education, which will inform schools’ decisions on when and how certain content is covered. We have uploaded a draft policy below. If you have any comments we invite you to share these using the following link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Of1HZyFi5g4DnvMR75tANUbdWLJ3-kMFF_jew78on-Y/edit. Any comments should be made by Friday 3rd July 2020.
The purpose of Relationships Education and Health Education is to provide knowledge and understanding of safe and healthy relationships based on respect. This is to encourage the development of safe and healthy relationships throughout life. The subject is designed to help children from all backgrounds build positive and safe relationships, and to thrive in modern Britain.
Thak you for your continued support.
