Sex & Relationship Education
Sex and Relationships Education takes place in each year group in the summer term. It aims to ensure young people understand and respect their bodies, and are able to cope with the changes puberty brings. The curriculum helps to support young people to have a positive self and body-image, and to understand the influences and pressures around them.
It is important to note that the SRE programme at Stourfield Junior School is embedded within the school’s values framework and that we consider it vital to do this work in partnership with parents and carers. We are mindful that parents/carers have the legal right to withdraw their children from the Sex and Relationships Education provided at school, except for those parts included in statutory National Curriculum for Science. Those parents/carers wishing to exercise this right are invited in to see the Head teacher and SRE Co-ordinator, who will explore any concerns and discuss any impact that withdrawal may have on the child. In order to assist parents in making this decision, parents will have the opportunity of viewing the DVD material used and have any concerns answered.
Further details of the policy for Sexand Relationships Education are available from the school office.
