A change in statutory guidance means that from September 2020 all Secondary schools were required to teach pupils Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education. The coronavirus pandemic meant this deadline was extended until the summer term of 2021 however, here at Cambourne Village College, we have been teaching the required content for some time as part of our PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) lessons and we are keen to ensure this important information is covered with pupils throughout the school year. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
RSE and Health Education are very large topics. RSE includes learning about families, respectful relationships (including friendships), online and media, being safe and intimate and sexual relationships (including sexual health). Health Education includes mental health, internet safety, healthy lifestyles, drugs, first aid and puberty.
We very much appreciate all of the feedback and suggestions from parents which contributed to our RSE policy. If you would like to read our RSE policy, please find the link below. Similarly, if you would like to see more detail about the PSHE curriculum for the 2020-2021 academic year (incorporating changes made due to Covid19 remote teaching periods) please see the attached plan, as well as a selection of sample RSE lessons for different year groups.
If you have any questions about our RSE policy or PSHE in general, please contact Mrs Lucy Durrant- firstname.lastname@example.org.
