Lowca Community School RSHE (Relationship, Sex and Health Education)

Statement of Intent

At Lowca Community School, we understand that students must be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. A key part of this relates to relationships and health education, which must be delivered to every primary-aged student. Primary schools also have the option to decide whether students are taught sex education.

Relationships education focusses on giving students the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Health education focusses on equipping students with the knowledge they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing.

We understand our responsibility to deliver a high-quality, age-appropriate and evidence-based relationships and health curriculum for all our students. This policy sets out the framework for our relationships and health curriculum, providing clarity on how it is informed, organised and delivered.
