This Relationships, Health and Sex Education policy covers Norwich Road Academy’s approach to teaching Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RHSE). It was produced following consultation with the whole school community including pupils, parents/carers, staff, the governing body and members of the wider community, such as medical professionals and faith leaders.
It will be reviewed every three years, or sooner if the RHSE curriculum is amended, in response to emerging themes, changing pupil needs or the introduction of new legislation and guidance.
Parents will be informed about the policy through regular RHSE consultation events, our school prospectus and a link from the school website. If a hard-copy of a document is required, the school will be happy to provide this upon request. The school will work with parents requiring the policy in an alternative format, ensuring equitable accessibility for all.
Resources to help protect children from harm
The NSPCC has a wide range of useful information and resources to support parents and schools in keeping young people safe from harm. www.nspcc.org.uk
At Norwich Road Academy, we use their materials to enhance our Relationship Sex and Health Education (RSHE) Curriculum. Children here are taught the ‘Underwear Rule’ with Pantasaurus. This teaches them that ‘Privates are Private’ and basis of consent.
