Relationships and sex education


Secretary of state

The opening statements from the Secretary of State included that:

  • children are growing up in a complex world and living their lives on and offline
  • subject content must be age appropriate and developmentally appropriate
  • RSE must be taught sensitively and inclusively, with respect to the backgrounds and beliefs of pupils and parents
  • the subjects should put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships
  • mental wellbeing is central to these subjects
  • the curriculum must help to foster and develop resilience and character
  • the curriculum should develop personal attributes including kindness, integrity, generosity, and honesty

This is why we have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools in England.

RSHE at Marriott

At Marriott we are committed to ensuring our children are prepared and have the tools they need for life in the modern world. Over the next few months, we will be developing our Relationships, Health and Sex Education policy (RSHE) ensuring that the content of our curriculum is age appropriate and progressive through the school. We will be asking for parents and members of the wider community to engage with us to develop a curriculum that is bespoke and suitable for the young people at Marriott. More details will be posted here is due course.

In the meantime, if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
