Margaret Wix Primary School

Relationships, Health and Sex Education

Relationships and health education (including puberty) is statutory.  Sex education is non-statutory but at Margaret Wix we believe through consultation with parents/carers this work is an important part of safeguarding children, as knowledge empowers them, helping them to stay safe, learn models of positive relationships, make informed decisions and understand why their bodies will change.  This then prepares them for their statutory sex education at secondary school and in our Parent Meeting was supported by all that attended. All parents/carers were also notified through a comprehensive and informative letter what was going to be covered within the RSE curriculum.
