Relationships and sex education

Since September 2020, it has become compulsory for primary pupils to be taught "Relationships Education" and for secondary pupils to be taught "Relationships and Sex Education" (RSE). 

We worked with Stonewall, the East London Out Project and One Decision to develop a support package for schools that can help them deliver the session. We also reviewed our anti-harassment policy to ensure that school sites are a safe space for teachers and staff.

We want children to happily play with each other and show respect for each other's faith, background and culture. We want them to be happy and comfortable with their identities.
