At Yew Tree, we teach the majority of our PSHE (Personal, Social & Health Education) curriculum using a scheme called Jigsaw. The Jigsaw curriculum overviews are included below for your information. Further information about our curriculum is available below but do get in touch if you have any questions.
Relationship & Health Education (RHE)
Our RHE curriculum is designed to match guidelines from the Department for Education. Any changes to our approach shall be noted on this page and, where changes are made, there shall be full consultation with parents/carers.
If parents/carers wish to withdraw their child from the Sex Education elements of the RHE curriculum (although it is important to note that some aspects are covered within the 'health' part of the RHE curriculum), they should contact the Head Teacher. Please note that Sex Education is not the same as Relationships Education so a conversation with school is important to ensure there is a full understanding of the aspects of the curriculum a child can be withdrawn from.
Currently, at Yew Tree Primary School, we do not teach any additional optional elements of Sex Education beyond those which are statutory as part of RHE.
In line with statutory guidance from the DfE, Yew Tree Primary has updated its PSHE curriculum for 20/21 to incorporate RHE. Information about the approach we have planned was shared with parents/carers on Tuesday 22nd September.
Information shared at the meeting has been uploaded below for those who were not able to make the meeting.
The consultation has now closed and the feedback from this process is posted below. After giving due consideration to the feedback provided, the Senior Leadership Team and the Governing Body have agreed to implement RHE as planned. If you have any questions related to this, please get in touch via the office.
