To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, pupils
need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing,
health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Pupils can also put this
knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when
facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their
lives. These subjects can support young people to develop resilience, to know how and
when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.

We follow the PSHRE Alliance Scheme of Work.

SRE (Sex and Relationships Education)

The following units of work are taught to each year group.

F2 – Our lives

Yr 1 – Growing and caring for ourselves

Yr 2 – Differences

Yr 3 – Valuing differences and keeping safe

Yr 4 – Growing up

Yr 5 – Puberty

Yr 6 – Puberty, relationships and reproduction

Each year group will only study the work relevant to their current year group.

At Robert Mellors, we teach the SRE units of work throughout the year. This gives teachers chance to revisit previous learning and supports the children with any questions that they have about this.

Sex and Relationships Education is an important part of the primary school curriculum and there are aspects of this which must be taught as statutory components of the National Curriculum for Science.

Right to withdraw

We acknowledge that you may wish to teach your child the other aspects of SRE at home and therefore choose for your child not to access this learning in school (opt out). If this is the case, we would ask you to contact your child’s class teacher to discuss this further. You will be required to complete a form to confirm that you wish to withdraw your child from these elements of the curriculum.

We have welcomed Ally from The Dog’s Trust to talk to the children in school about keeping safe around dogs.
