After consideration of the views of parents and staff, the Governors have decided that sex education will be carried out in accordance with the following principals:
- Sex education is supportive and complimentary to parents own responsibility in these matters.
- Sex education is an integral part of a Health-education programme and needs specific planning.
- All sex education should be approached in the context of loving relationships and family life, which can mean a one or two parent family.
- Parents have a right to withdraw their child from sex education lessons but not from those elements that form part of the Science National Curriculum. Parents will, therefore, be notified in writing in advance of the sex and relationships lessons taking place and will be given an opportunity to view and discuss the materials used.
