Sex and Relationships Education
The Jigsaw unit 'Changing me' is covered by all year groups. This unit includes Sex and Relationship Education in the context of looking at change :
‘SRE is lifelong learning process of acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs and attitudes about sex, sexuality, relationships and feelings’ (Sex Education Forum, 1999).
Effective SRE can make a significant contribution to the development of the personal skills needed by pupils if they are to establish and maintain relationships. It also enables children and young people to make responsible and informed decisions about their health and well-being.
We are mindful that parents/carers do have the legal right to withdraw their children from the SRE that is part of the Jigsaw Programme. It is always hoped that we can find a way to keep all children involved in SRE. Should a parent/carer wish to do so, they must firstly request a meeting with the Head teacher to discuss the concerns in order to come to an agreement.
