Dear Parent and Carers,
Planned Delivery of Relationships and Health Education Postponed until Summer 2021
Prior to the school closure, to the majority of pupils, we had already created a draft Relationship and Health Education Policy. This policy was shared with our community and feedback was received and acted upon.
In addition, as part of the process we are also developing a new scheme of work and set of resources, which will be used to deliver the statutory curriculum.
An important part of the consultation process is to share the scheme and resources we have developed. We had hoped to complete this during the summer term before starting the curriculum in September 2020. Unfortunately, due the school partial closure and the Covid-19 pandemic, we were unable to carry out this consultation.
We believe that consulting with parents is a vital and important step in delivering a successful new Relationships and Health Education Curriculum.
As this consultation has not yet taken place, we have postponed the teaching of the new curriculum until Summer 2021. This will allow us to share the scheme of work and resources before they are used in school.
Current social distancing measures and restriction on public gatherings mean that we cannot hold parent meetings until further notice. Therefore, information regarding how and when the consultation will take place will be sent out during the Autumn Term
We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Mr. D. Walls
Head of School
