Bishopstone Church Of England Primary School

Relationships and Sex education (RSE) and Health Education (Reviewed April 2021)

At Bishopstone School we teach a majority of RSE in the Summer Term.  Throughout the year we follow the PSHE Association Scheme of work.  We also refer to the SBC Healthy Schools website, click here.

 As a CE school we have the option to use elements of 'Goodness and Mercy - RSHE scheme, but we do not follow this on its own.

We have access to the SBC Scheme of work for Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Education but remain focused on the PSHE Association scheme which covers this area in detail.

 Bishopstone RSE Policy (Review 07/23)

This is supplemented by 'Yasemin and Tom' from the Family Planning Association (as recommended by the PSHE Association).  The scheme in this series gently introduce sex education to primary children looking at changes that occur from childhood through adolescence into their adulthood.  You can see the lengthy process when reviewing and disseminating on our PSHE webpage.


Before we teach RSE we invite parents in to see the materials and allow parents the opportunity to view the video clips, so that we are working together to introduce these issues to the children (see below for yearly coverage).


If you do not wish your child to participate in these sessions, having viewed the material then please let your child's teacher know.


We supplement teaching Yr5/6 girls with the fantastic resources provided by 'Betty for Schools'.  Click here to go to their website.
