Sex and Relationship Education in our school will aim to help pupils cope with the physical and emotional challenges of growing up, and gives them an elementary understanding of human reproduction.  Care and sensitivity has been used in matching teaching as far as possible to the maturity of the children involved, and in answering any questions.  Due consideration will be given to any particular religious, cultural or social issues during discussion.  Above all, the governors wish to make it clear the Sex and Relationship Education will be taught in such a manner as to encourage children to have due regard to moral consideration and the value of family life.  Children will not embark on a programme of Sex Education involving human reproduction without the prior knowledge of their parents.  Should parents wish to exercise their right to withdraw their children from this aspect of Sex Education, they should inform the school in writing.
