Sex & Relationships Education
Sex and relationship education aims to educate and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development in partnership with parents and professionals. A successful program matched to levels of functioning will help young people to learn to respect themselves and others and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood.
At Wren Spinney School we are committed to providing students with opportunities to;
- Develop a positive and realistic self-understanding & self-image
- Make safe choices and understand each other’s rights
- Recognise, tolerate and respect difference
- Respect self and others
- Foster positive attitudes and values
- Communicate effectively & assertively with others
- Develop the skills, understanding and attitudes to enable them to become confident and competent members of their communities
- Develop moral, social and cultural understanding
Any parent may at any time, exercise their statutory right to withdraw their child under the Education Act 1993, from all or part of the Sex and Relationships Education programme but not from the teaching of the biological aspects of human growth and reproduction that form part of National Curriculum Science. Any parent wishing to withdraw their child should contact the Headteacher.
