Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
Warblington School has developed the SRE programme to meet DfE guidance. We have worked to ensure that the enrichment curriculum establishes:-
‘Lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. It is about the understanding of the importance of marriage for family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality, and sexual health. It is not about the promotion of sexual orientation or sexual activity – this would be inappropriate teaching.’ (DfE Guidance 0116/2000)
At Warblington School, the aims of SRE in this school are:
· To enable our students to better understand the nature of human relationships;
· To enable students to see the importance of marriage and stable loving relationships for the bringing up of children;
· To prepare students for the changes that occur to their bodies, minds and emotions as a consequence of growth from childhood to adulthood.
The school recognises that SRE is a moral issue in its own right. As part of the whole curriculum the school seeks to explore issues of right and wrong, alongside those of respect. The school recognises that SRE is fraught with certain difficulties and whilst it acknowledges different life style choices it promotes a view that stable loving relationships are the best context for sexual relationships and the bringing-up of children.
