As you may or may not be aware, the DfE have recently released new guidelines on the teaching of Health and Relationship education in primary and secondary schools. These guidelines are statutory for all schools in the UK as of 2020. As a result of this, we are updating how we teach this subject.
As a school, we have enrolled in a new initiative called My Feelings, Friends and Family, which provides a comprehensive scheme of lessons, from Reception all the way to year 6, covering everything the children need to know about this incredibly important subject.
We appreciate that it is vital you are kept up to date with everything your child will be taught, therefore we have sent out some information about the scheme as a whole and the key lessons that will be taught, to ensure we are all on the same page about this topic.
Our school policy regarding Health and Relationship Education can also be found in the policy section of the school website, or through the link below if you wish to read more about our whole school approach regarding this subject.
Please also see below, a letter sent out to parents providing you with information about the key lessons to be taught. These lessons will be taught across the school throughout the second half of the summer term so if you wish to speak to your child/children before then, please feel free to do so.
We hope you will join us in embracing this modern and increasingly relevant subject matter, as we as a school feel very strongly that all children should receive up to date and accurate information on their own health and wellbeing.
If you have any concerns or queries, please feel free to contact the school office and book an appointment with either Mrs Barrass or Miss Wray
