Consultation Questions

Thank you for sharing your views on our RSE Policy. They will be given weight and we may make changes to our RSE Policy in light of your views, as appropriate.

The following questions are asked to collect your views about our RSE Policy and our approach to RSE. They are not asked to collect your views about whether or not the DfE is right to require us to teach specific topics as part of RSE. Concerns about the DfE’s requirements should be made to the DfE. We do not have power over those requirements and, as our RSE Policy explains, we are legally required to comply with them.

Question Title

* 1. Is our RSE Policy clearly written and easy to understand – could any parts of it be made clearer?

Question Title

* 2. After reading Section IX of our RSE Policy (“Raising Concerns About this Policy or the RSE Curriculum”), do you understand how to raise concerns about our RSE Policy or RSE Curriculum and what things should be considered before raising a concern?

Question Title
