Relationships & Sex Education
All schools with a secondary phase (including all-through and middle schools) need to provide Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health education. This is set out in the DfE's guidance. We deliver our RSE programme through the teaching of PSHE. You can discover more about what is taught, and when, by visiting the PSHE page.
At Gumley House, we use the program which consists of resources designed by TenTen entitled, ‘Living Life to the Full’. This program meets all statutory requirements whilst maintaining the Catholic values and ethos of the school. We review our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum and policy every year so we can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their age, physical and emotional maturity, religious and cultural background and Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
As we continue to review our curriculum we would very much appreciate your feedback, which will contriu=bute to how the provision is shaped.
