Sex and relationship education

The school’s policy on sex and relationship education aims to help children develop:

• respect for themselves and for others
• self-confidence and self-esteem
• an appropriate set of values to guide their own behaviour and their relationships with others
• responsibility for their own actions
• responsibility towards their families, friends, school and wider community
• an understanding of growing up in terms of both the physical and emotional changes involved
• an appropriate understanding of sexual development and relationships
• appropriate communication and social skills

The programme of sex and relationship education is intended to prepare children for adolescence and adult life.

The teaching of sex and relationship education is intended to:

• provide clear, reliable, appropriate and authoritative information to children
• dispel misunderstanding
• help children make appropriate judgements and choices
