Relationships and Sex Education

RSE - Summer Term

At Melbourne Junior School we believe that effective Sex and Relationship Education is essential for young people to make responsible and well-informed decisions in their lives. It will be known as RSE and the RSE programme is integrated into the PSHE curriculum within the school. This promotes positive behaviour, good mental health and wellbeing, resilience and achievement, helping children to stay safe online, develop healthy and safe relationships, making sense of media messages, challenging extreme views and having the skills and attributes to negotiate and assert themselves now and in the future.
