At Nova we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.

From September 2020, the Department for Education made Relationships and Health Education compulsory in all primary schools. I shared information about these changes, our draft RSE policy and proposed curriculum with parents and carers in term 6 last year, seeking feedback from you. Only a small number of parents responded to the questionnaire, however 100% agreed with our planned curriculum.

You will find recent RSE letters and FAQs document here:

We have been teaching relationships education since September 2020 as part of our PSHE curriculum. Below you will find attached overview plans for each year group and how the content taught meets DfE requirements.

You will also find our RSE policy attached here:

We will be seeking parent and pupil feedback in term 6 2021 when reviewing out RSE policy.

If you have any questions about our RSE curriculum then please contact the school to discuss.
