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 DfE announced changes to relationships and sex education following a nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. Due to Covid 19, schools had been able to delay this until the summer of 2021. The statutory guidance can be found at:
The new 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.
Following our consultation with parents, the full policy was approved by the Govenors in Term 5 2021. A copy of the policy can be found below as well as the DfE Guidance and FAQs for parents.
We will be using 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. An outline of the curriculum can be found below.
