As part of your child’s educational experience at Cleves Cross Primary and Nursery School, we aim to promote personal well-being and development through a comprehensively taught programme of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
you may already be aware, the Department for Education has announced changes to ‘Relationships and Sex’ education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are now required to comply with updated requirements. Due to COVID19, schools have been able to delay this until the Summer Term 2021. The statutory guidance can be found at:
The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, well-being, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
All of this means that we have been reviewing our ‘Relationships and Sex Education’ (RSE) curriculum and policy so we can be sure our provision is appropriate for our pupils.
As part of our review, we would appreciate your views on our draft policy for RSE.
As part of this consultation we have included:
- Draft Policy
- Long-term overview of the PSHE curriculum (includes RSE)
- DfE guidance that outlines statutory requirements

Thank you for your continued support
