Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) and Relationships & Sex Education (RSE)
From September 2020, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. Due to school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, this deadline has been extended to Summer term 2021.
As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure that there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.
Hillside Community Primary School will be starting their consultation process on Monday 30th November;

As a school we use Jigsaw as our PSHE / Health & Well-being Programme; it offers a comprehensive programme which includes the statutory RSE in an age appropriate way. The Jigsaw link to the statutory guidance can be viewed below also.
