Relationships and Sex Education Consultation 

During the academic year 2020-2021, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales teach Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.

Schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.

The consultation process will begin on Thursday 25th February and will finish on Monday 12th March 2021.  This time scale will allow all stakeholders time to have read and understood the documents below.

If you wish to share your views on any part of the consultation please email


At Sacred Heart School, our PSHE & SRE ensures that through a focus on citizenship, pupils are increasingly aware of what society is, how this functions and to begin to understand how they may play a constructive role in the society of the future. The Personal Social and Health Education and Relationships curriculum is one of many ways that as a school we facilitate this.

This is taught both in terms of discrete units of PSHE work and through learning in other areas, most notably in RE, Science and PE. It is also delivered through assemblies, presentations, visits and visitors the school either as a year group, school phase or whole school as appropriate. Learning in PSHE also helps to support children at various stages during their own development, such as in the Early Years Foundation Stage, supporting children with turn taking, sharing and listening to others or, in Year 6, learning about the changes to the body during puberty and preparing for transition to Secondary School.

At Sacred Heart School, PSHE and SRE is also about giving pupils a significant voice in school. We have both an active School Council that work alongside teachers, senior leaders and governors to ensure that there is pupil involvement in setting the vision and direction for the school. Pupils also participate in pupil voice exercises as part of subject monitoring and annually through the governors’ pupil voice survey.

You will find further details about the PSHE & SRE currciulum in the Curriculum letters and the homework letters(currently home learning) .
