Relationships & Sex Education

Welcome to Sussex Road School Relationships & Sex Education

Through our teaching of RSE at Sussex Road, we aim to:

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place.
  • Prepare children for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene.
  • Help children develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy.
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships.
  • Teach children the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies from year 1 to 6 in our school and continue at Secondary School.


Pupils will put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts online and in the outside world. We ensure RSE is inclusive and meets the needs of all our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) by adapting our lessons to suit their needs or giving them more time with an adult to discuss any concerns for them.
