Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

At Llanhari Primary School we value the importance of Relationship and Sexuality Education (RSE) to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development. From September 2022 all teaching staff (class teachers) will teach RSE as part of the Curriculum for Wales. Opportunities will be provided in Year 6 for separate lessons on physical changes, conception and birth. Other members of staff, including the School Nurse will teach aspects of RSE and will be supported by the class teacher

There will be a whole-school approach – from Nursery to Year 6 and all learning in RSE will be developmentally appropriate. The subject will be taught in a cross-curricular way, encompassing all the elements within Personal, Social and Health Education topics, as well as expanding on human relationships, human and physical development and reproduction, sexuality and the risks of sexual activity.

*Parents should be aware that children cannot be withdrawn from these lessons.
