Sex and Relationship Education

The Governing Body of Goosnargh Oliverson’s C.E. Primary School authorises and supports the Sex Education Programme prepared for the pupils at the school.

The programme is rooted in the Christian Faith and is designed to meet the needs of all our pupils. The Governors believe that sex education is important in promoting the spiritual, moral and cultural development of our children, as well as helping to understand their bodies and feelings.

At Goosnargh Oliverson’s, sex education is taught in the context of relationships and respect for self and others. The programme concerns the whole person and is developmental, covering many aspects which begins in the early years and continues through the child’s education and beyond. Partnership with parents is considered vital in maximising the success of the programme.

Each year, staff invite parents to an information evening to ensure all concerned parents are fully informed of the curriculum.
