Relationships and Sex Education

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is a central part of the curriculum and is fundamental to success in learning and life. At Lingfield Primary School, it supports and underpins our core values of respect, resilience and relationships. We use the Thrive Approach, a neurological understanding of how the brain works and this supports with the children's emotional and social development.

Health and Relationships Education (HRE) is the umbrella that covers Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education. The vast majority of the Health and Relationships Education curriculum is now statutory and there is no right to withdraw a child from the lessons - this came into effect in September 2020. We believe that our role as educators is to arm children with knowledge, skills and understanding to make informed decisions and positive choices in their lives. 

Information relating to Health and Relationships Education is available here and we direct all parents and carers to contact us with any questions. We have tried to answer some common questions as part of the information on this website. The presentations are intended for parents and carers and not children; we structure the children's learning differently for Health and Relationships Education and do not simply show them a Google presentation. 

Please do take your time to look at the materials and how your children will be taught. If you have any further questions, please do contact your child's class teacher. We want to have honest and open dialogue with parents and carers over the teaching of these materials.
