Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

Safeguarding our children is of paramount importance to us at Istead Rise Primary School.
We also believe it is essential that children are provided with age-appropriate information to
assist them in making sensible choices and developing respect for themselves and others as
they progress through the school.


Relationships and sex education is learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects
of growing up, relationships, sex and human sexuality.


As a school we have use a scheme of work called Jigsaw (https://www.jigsawpshe.com/)
which is a comprehensive programme of PSHE (including RSE) which provides accurate
information about the body, puberty and reproduction. It also gives children and young
people essential skills for building positive, enjoyable, respectful and non-exploitative
relationships and staying safe both on and offline. 


During the school year we will hold meetings with parents so that there is a clarity about
what your children will be learning and we can answer any questions that you may have. 
This allows home and school to work together to support our children.
