Relationships & Growing

Intent

Relationships and Growing is taught progressively all the way through school, where the units build on the previous years’ learning. The main aim of our curriculum is to help the children learn to understand and respect themselves and others and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood. The resources are matched to their age and we encourage children to ask questions in a safe and secure learning environment.

Implementation

The most effective learning takes place when school and parents work together; this is particularly true for R&G. Your child may want to talk things through with you and have questions that they would prefer to talk about at home, within their own family. We hope you will support your child’s learning in this way. 

Parents/carers do not have the right to withdraw their children from relationships education. Parents/ carers do have the right to withdraw their children from the non-statutory components of sex education (those not contained within the science curriculum) within RSHE.

There have been some statutory changes in the law around the teaching of this important topic; we have been teaching it successfully since 2014 and there are no major changes in our delivery. We will continue to use the Christopher Winter Project materials which are approved by Royal Borough of Greenwich. The learning covers elements of the Science curriculum and elements of Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RSHE).  

Due to Covid-19, this has not been possible to hold parent meetings as we have in the past, so we have created four short presentations instead, which we hope you find useful and informative. The Introduction for Relationships and Growing is for all parents and carers to watch, then there are presentations for specific year groups. Follow the links to view the presentations.
