Relationship and Sex Education
We have consulted a range of stakeholders in relation to our PSHE and Relationship Education policy. You can find it on the Curriculum and Policies section the PSHE and Relationship Education curriculum page. Teaching sex education is not compulsory in primary schools and our school community has decided we will teach 'Conception to Birth' as part of the Science curriculum only. Puberty is part of the compulsory curriculum at St Margaret's. This is taught as part of the Jigsaw programme.
The Relationship and Health elements will be taught through the 'Jigsaw' resources, which have been created to ensure a mindful approach to Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and are aimed to increase pupil confidence. Jigsaw is a unique, spiral, progressive and effective scheme of work, aiming to prepare children/young people for life, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.
