Alpington & Bergh Apton C of E VA Primary School

Sex Education

This begins in Key Stage 1 with children learning about health and hygiene and then progresses through the school. We teach Sex Education through different aspects of the curriculum such as Personal, social and Health Education as well as through the Science curriculum. The teaching of Sex and Relationship Education is provided in such a manner as to encourage our children to have regard to moral considerations and the value of family life. Children who are at different levels of maturity, will have different life experiences and very different attitudes and feelings. Lessons are planned to allow different perceptions to be shared, with all contributions being valued and respected.

The needs of children are taken into account by teachers, who may provide different resources, activities or specific support to some children. SRE should help all children understand their physical and emotional development and enable them to make positive decisions in their lives.
