Relationship and Health Education are compulsory in all primary schools in England (DfE 19).
These changes are to support children's development and their preparation for life. At Bolton we focus on positive relationships, respect and consent.
Some elements of sex education will be taught in discreet sessions and age-appropriately by a specialist teacher. Many aspects, however, will be taught as part of regular topic work e.g. Science, PHSE and through assemblies and philosophy for children.
Class 3 pupils also spend two mornings doing the Barnardos Real Love Rocks Programme - see below for more information on content.
You will be informed about the delivery and timetabling of the sex education as you do have the right to withdraw your child from this aspect of the lessons. You do not have the right to withdraw from Health and Relationship Education. If you wish to discuss this, please contact Ruth Elstone, Headteacher.
