RSE/PSHE

All schools are required to deliver a new and compulsory “Relationships and Sex Education” (RSE) curriculum as part of their Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) program. Brook House Junior School has chosen to use the JIGSAW PSHE curriculum to help us deliver these aims.

All schools are required to consult with parents with regards to these changes. In order to do this, I invite you to read our new, draft “PSHE and RSE Overview” and the accompanying RSHE guide for parents, which contains guidance to support you in talking to your child, by clicking on the relevant links.

Our PSHE and RSE Overview sets out what is going to be taught in each year group. The webpage below from the Department for Education explains a little more about the changes and provides some answers to some frequently asked questions.

Parents do not have the right to withdraw their child from any aspect of statutory RSE. Parents do have the right to withdraw their children from the non-statutory/non-science components of sex education within RSE in KS2.

If you have any questions regarding our PSHE/RSE curriculum please contact the school via the school office.
