Effective sex and relationship education (SRE) is essential if young people are to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives. At Hedworth Lane Primary our SRE curriculum is firmly rooted within the framework for Personal, Social and Health Education and the Citizenship framework.
The objective of sex and relationship education is to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development. Our programme, firmly embedded in PSHE, will help the children learn to respect themselves and others and for our very oldest children, support their move with confidence from childhood towards adolescence and eventually into adulthood.
Pupils need also to be given accurate information and helped to develop skills to enable them to understand difference and respect themselves and others and for the purpose also of preventing and removing prejudice. The curriculum focus is on understanding their own body, building healthy relationships and staying safe.
At Hedworth Lane School we largely follow the Lucinda and Godfrey scheme. Parents and carers can view the curriculum here.
We encourage parents and carers to come to school to view the materials. More information on the Lucinda and Godfrey scheme can be found at school. Please ask to speak to Ms Ross, Teacher in charge.
