We do offer a firm foundation of planned teaching activities, via our Personal, Social and Health Education and the Personal Safety Programmes, which prepare pupils for the teaching of sex education during Key Stage 2. The school’s ethos compliments this work as there is a deep commitment to empowering children to take responsibility for their own actions and safety and to providing a caring environment in which they are valued and their self esteem nurtured.
We have a policy of answering children’s questions as they occur during classroom discussions. We see the family unit as the focal point of relationships for young children and recognise this as the place where specific teaching can take place. Pupils have the opportunity to speak to a range of adults, both male and female and the school nurse.
