From September 2020, all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships, Sex and Health Education.
Relationships and Sex Education is designed to help children to have positive and safe relationships with family and friends, including when they are online and accessing the internet.
Health Education helps children to make good decisions about their health and wellbeing, enabling them to know how to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
At KLT, we have been delivering Relationships and Health Education within our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum for many years. We have reviewed our PSHE curriculum to make sure that our lessons meet the requirements that the government has set out for the content of Relationships, Sex and Health Education.
As a school we consulted with our parents/carers in December 2020, regarding our Relationship and Sex Education policy.
