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with school is important to ensure there is a full understanding of the aspects of the curriculum a child can be withdrawn from.
NB: The school is currently working with Sandwell Local Authority to update our curriculum approach to meet the latest DfE guidelines about RSE. As soon as information is available, we shall hold a meeting to share this and consult appropriately with parents/carers.
Yew Primary School is NOT teaching the new RHE curriculum until the 20/21 school year.
