"Achieving Success by Learning Together"

Sex and Relationship Education Policy

The aim of SRE is to provide children with age appropriate information, explore attitudes and values and develop skills in order to empower them to make positive decisions about their health related behaviour. This should take place with consideration of the qualities of relationships within families.

The objectives of Sex and Relationship Education are:

  • To provide the knowledge and information to which all pupils are entitled;
  • To clarify/reinforce existing knowledge;
  • To acknowledge the value of respect, love and care;
  • To raise pupils’ self-esteem and confidence, especially in their relationships with others;
  • To help pupils’ develop skills (language, decision making, choice, assertiveness) and make the most of their abilities;
  • To provide the confidence to be participating members of society and to value themselves and others;
  • To develop skills for a healthier safer lifestyle;
  • To develop and use communication skills and assertiveness skills to cope with the influences of their peers and the media;
  • To respect and care for their bodies;
  • To understand physical development at appropriate stages;
  • To be prepared for puberty and adulthood.
