Positive and Healthy Relationships-including Relationships, Sex and Health Education
The school takes a positive approach to teaching our students about positive and healthy relationships. This includes teaching about the following topics in an age appropriate way and according to the statutory guidance Relationships, Sex and Health Education 2020 (see under Teaching and Learning for Guidance and MLT RSHE Policy):
Safeguarding and how to stay safe-including online
Healthy and respectful relationships, including kindness, privacy, respecting boundaries
What respectful behaviour looks like
Gender roles, stereotyping and equality
Body confidence and self-esteem
Sexual violence and sexual harassment
We also make clear to students how we ensure we put relevant policies into practice ie RSHE; Safeguarding and Child Protection; Positive Behaviour and Anti-Bullying.
Through our explicit routines and guidance, we make it clear to students what behaviour is and is not acceptable including any kind of peer on peer abuse. We regularly remind students of the importance of raising any concerns which they may have and how to access support if they need it.
