As part of your child’s education at Derwentwater Primary School, we aim to help our children to learn to respect themselves and others and to move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood and to develop happy, healthy and safe relationships.
We will begin RSHE lessons; we are mainly focusing on our relationship’s curriculum. We will start teaching these lessons on Thursday 21st July.
All schools are required to comply with the Department for Education’s guidance. This is the same guidance as last year.
The statutory guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/relationships-sex-and-health-education-guides-for-schools
These lessons are now statutory and will be taught within their year groups, so all lessons are age-appropriate. Year 4, 5, and 6 RSE lessons will be split by gender for some concepts to enable pupils to feel confident when asking questions during the lessons.
As a school, we have always been open and shared our teaching content.
