As part of your child’s educational experience at Lympne CEP School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives both now and in the future.
As you may already be aware, the Department for Education announced changes to relationships and sex education following a nationwide consultation and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at:
The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It aslo covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
We use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work to provide comprehensive and detailed coverage of our statutory obligations, as well as the sex education aspects that parents were overwhelmingly in favour of during consultation. An outline of the curriculum can be found below.
