Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex and Education (RSE)
Here at Exeter a Learning Community we always aim to promote our children’s wellbeing and life skills and ensure that we give them the knowledge they need to be safe, and lead successful, healthy lives. Our commitment is to teach a comprehensive PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) curriculum across all year groups.
In September 2020 the Department for Education made the teaching of Relationships, Sex Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools. At a primary level the focus will mainly be relationships and health, introducing sex education in Years 5 and 6. We will be implementing a new PSHE curriculum across the school that will teach this content in an age appropriate way.

The parent consultation on this policy closed on 22nd June 2021. One parental response was received. Our policy has now been approved by the Governing.
To help parents and carers understand what this will look like, we have created a presentation which explains the changes that are being made, the curriculum content and your rights as a parent or carer.
What if I still have questions or comments?
· Would you like support at home, on how to speak to your child about relationships, health and sex education?
· Any questions about the policy and curriculum content.
