RSE - consulting with parents
RSE - Relationships and Sex Education at Hatch Warren Junior School - consulting with parents
The school's approach to the teaching of RSE is detailed in the PSHE policy which can be found on the school's policy page of this website. A link to this page can be found at the base of this page.
Part of the work undertaken by the school when updating this policy included consulting with parents. This was done initially through a questionnaire sent out to all parents which asked them to comment on what the school teaches, when each area is taught and finally if there were any areas which parents felt were missing from the RSE curriculum at the time. Details of these responses have been included in the document below.
Following this initial consultation parents who expressed a desire to further discuss the provision were invited to attend a forum (because of Covid restrictions this was done remotely) . The forum provided parents with greater detail about the RSE curriculum, addressed any questions that had been posed by parents and collected any other responses or thoughts about the approach used in school when delivering RSE. The head teacher, deputy head teacher, teaching staff and the chair of governors were in attendance at the meeting. The presentation included below was shared at the meeting. During the meeting notes were taken which captured the views that were expressed during the meeting. These notes, along with a copy of the presentation, have all been shared with the governing body, along with a survey of staff also completed.
The governing body then considered all of the evidence gathered when reviewing the PSHE policy.
As part of the delivery of RSE in school parents are invited by staff to meet in advance of the RSE units linked to puberty and sex education with the year leader who shares the resources that are shared with the children in school.
