From September 2020 all primary schools in England are required to teach Relationships Education and Health Education. In June 2020 the DfE released an update advising schools that due to disruption caused by Coronavirus they could delay starting teaching RSHE to no later than the beginning of the summer term 2021 if they feel they need additional planning time.
There is no statutory requirement for primary schools to teach sex education beyond what is required in the Science National Curriculum. However, the department for education recommends that children are taught about how a baby is conceived and born prior to leaving primary school and therefore we have included conception and birth in our content at Years 5 and 6.
You can find full details on what schools need to teach and further guidance can be found in ‘Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education Statutory guidance for governing bodies, proprietors, head teachers, principals, senior leadership teams, teachers’. Kapow Primary’s lessons have been carefully mapped against the teaching requirements and therefore cover all the statutory content.
