Delivery of RSE
Delivery of RSE
RSE is taught within the personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education curriculum. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum, and other aspects are included in religious education (RE).
Relationships education focuses on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships. Jigsaw covers the following areas identified by DFE:
- Families and people who care for me
- Caring friendships
- Respectful relationships
- Online relationships
- Being safe
Both Relationship and Sex Education is broken down into six lessons. These lessons look different in each year group, and build on their previous learning. Outlined below are the six lesson focuses for each group for both Relationship and Sex Education. Some parts of ‘Changing Me’ are compulsory as they are statutory requirements as outlined in the national curriculum for Science, Health Education or PSHE.
These areas of learning are taught within the context of family life, taking care to ensure that there is no stigmatisation of children based on their home circumstances (families can include single parent families, LGBT parents, families headed by grandparents, adoptive parents, foster parents/carers amongst other structures) along with reflecting sensitively that some children may have a different structure of support around them (for example: looked after children or young carers).
