Sex and Relationship Education
Sex Education is an integral part of the school’s programme of Science and Personal, Social and Health Education. The programme covers the physiological aspects of sexual development. The overall aim is to promote informed responsible choices in respect of sexual behaviour with due regard to moral considerations and the value of family life. The main emphasis is on relationships and will reflect the needs of the pupils as they progress through school. All work in this area of the curriculum is undertaken with the utmost tact and sensitivity. A full statement of policy is available from the school which includes a statement informing parents of their right to withdraw pupils should they so wish.
