Parent Consultations - work in progress
Relationships and Sex Education - Consultation 2022
The Department for Education introduced compulsory Relationships Education for primary children from September 2020. It also became compulsory for all schools to teach Health Education. The purpose of these subjects is to support all young people to be happy, healthy, and safe – to equip them for adult life and to help support children to make a positive contribution to society.
As part of this, all schools were required to consult with parents when developing and reviewing their policies for Relationships Education, which informed decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
Effective engagement gives the space and time for parents to input, ask questions, share concerns and for the school to decide the way forward. Here at QI, we will listen to parents’ views, and then make a reasonable decision as to how we wish to proceed. When and how content is taught is ultimately a decision for the school, and consultation does not provide a parental veto on curriculum content.
After our initial consultation we would like to re consult parents as we have now been teaching the content from the RSE (using resources supported by SCARF) for almost 2 years.
We invite parents to complete a short questionnaire
