Health & Relationships Education
Health & Relationships Policy (including sex and relationships)
Relationships and Health Education are compulsory for all pupils in primary schools.
In Willows Academy Trust, Relationships Education and Health Education are taught as part of the wider Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE) curriculum which supports the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils and helps prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Our PSHE curriculum in each school reflects the Willows Academy Trust ethos, aims and values that support all our pupils to 'Aspire...Achieve...Thrive', underpinned by the ethos, aims and values of each school. As part of this holistic approach, elements of sex education are also taught as part of the wider curriculum in our primary schools, as set out in each school's curriculum and scheme of work.
If you have concerns about content, or wish to exercise your right to withdraw your child from specific aspects of sex education content, please speak to your child’s teacher or the headteacher.
