In September, the new statutory requirements for relationships and health education came into force for all schools in England. Following a period of development and consultation, I am pleased to say that the policy and scheme of work for our academy is now in place. The new curriculum will be taught from January 2021.
Thank you to all parents who responded during the consultation period in the Summer term of 2020. As a school, we recognise the importance of partnership with our parents and value the contributions that have been made. Many parents were positive about the proposed curriculum and questions and concerns have been addressed.
There have been two main revisions to the consultation policy and scheme of work:
- Approved vocabulary in Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2 has been amended to reflect age, maturity and cultural considerations. This also refers to the use of diagrams.
- Non-statutory sex education has been removed from our Year 6 curriculum, in line with other local schools.
As non-statutory sex education has been removed from the curriculum, there is no longer a right to withdraw from PSHE lessons at Ashton West End.
It is our intention that the PSHE, RS&HE curriculum at Ashton West End Academy will enable children to develop the skills necessary to make a positive contribution to the society in which they live and to remain safe and healthy. The policy and SOW will be reviewed regularly to ensure that this remains the case.
Please note that the order of topics may vary slightly during the academic year 2020 – 2021, due to school and bubble closures.
