New Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) including Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education Curriculum for Parents’ Consultation.
As a school, we are underway with a full curriculum review, which includes taking a close look at provision for Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE) education. From September 2020, the government have defined Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education as a compulsory feature of all primary school curriculums.
For St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, relationships and health education, has always formed part of our PSHE curriculum, so this is nothing new. However, we feel it is important that when there are changes in our PSHE curriculum, we engage and inform parents of what these changes consist of and to this end we will begin a period of consultation with parents. This will be characterised by information sharing, with opportunities to comment on policy and practice in relation to RSE and to learn more about the materials the school will use to deliver the RSE strand of PSHE.
For a number of years we have used ‘Journey in Love’ , as recommended by the Diocese, to cover the Sex Education strand of our curriculum. These materials can be viewed by prior arrangement.
This consultation will begin with our new PSHE curriculum and draft PSHE policy.
These have been developed with the children, staff and governors of St Anne's Catholic Primary School and are in line with the PSHE Association and government requirements.
Unfortunately, due to COVID- 19 we are unable to invite you into school for an open evening to discuss these documents. Therefore, we will be making these available on the school website from now until 30th November for parents to read and review.

We look forward to hearing your comments and addressing any queries you wish to raise.
