Relationships and Health Education September 2020

The modern world for all young people looks very different from the way it did 20 years ago when the current curriculum was last updated. New statutory guidance from the Department of Education has been developed and implementation is fast approaching. 

From September 2020 all schools are required to teach Relationships and Health Education. This updated curriculum will focus on teaching young people the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships to support them to grow up healthy, happy and safe.  During primary school this will focus particularly on friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults.

Getting Parents on board- Empowerment and Involvement 

Both schools and parents play a vital role in the education of children and although teaching of Relationships Health Education will be compulsory, the new guidance from the Department for Education is keen that parents are given opportunity to have their say on delivery.

Wakefield Council invite parents to have their say through participation in this short survey. This will enable us to listen to and understand parent views and opinions regarding Relationships Education topics to ensure they are designed and delivered appropriately by schools to equip your child with the knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions about their relationships, health and wellbeing.

All questions are optional and you are not obliged to provide any personal data as part of this survey.  If you choose to share any personal data then information about why we collect data and how your data will be stored can be found here visit http://www.wakefield.gov.uk/site/transparency-notice
