Relationships and Sex Education
Curriculum Content Overview
At Attleborough Academy, the aim of Relationships and Sex Education is to give students the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds, not just intimate relationships. Students should know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful marriage, civil partnership or other type of committed relationship.
The RSE course is highlighted and imbedded in the PSHCE Curriculum and is taught by two subject specialists and delivered sensitively taking into consideration the age and status of the students in the class. In some cases, the specific background of the student will be discussed with all parties who have an interest in the needs of the young person in question, to discuss and advise on how this programme can be tailored for those needs. This can usually be done through the Student Support Team. In all cases however, regardless of the student's situation we are determined to deliver and tailor the RSE course to suit the student's specific needs, being sensitive and inclusive at all times.
