Lockyer's Middle School

Relationships Education

These lessons are very much geared to each year group, to ensure that every child is being provided with the appropriate knowledge and understanding required.  It is the aim of the Government and the Local Authority to ensure that children are well versed with this area of their education.  It is felt, through evidence, that those children who have a greater understanding can make positive choices in the future.

The purpose of Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is to provide knowledge and understanding of how the human body changes during puberty and the processes of human reproduction, within the context of relationships based on love and respect.  It should develop understanding and attitudes which will help pupils to form relationships in a responsible and healthy manner and to appreciate the value of stable family life, including the responsibilities of parenthood and marriage.

The RSE programme has been developed through collaboration across Wimborne Academy Trust, using guidance from the National Curriculum, Ofsted and the PSHE Association.  All teaching materials are appropriate to the age and emotional maturity of the pupils and the teachers will aim to present the programme in an objective, balanced and sensitive manner.
