At St Michael’s Church of England High School, we understand the importance of educating pupils about sex, relationships, and their health, for them to make responsible and well-informed decisions in their lives.

The teaching of relationships, sex and health education can help to prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adult life. It allows us to promote the spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental, and physical development of pupils at school and in the wider society.

We have an obligation to provide pupils with high quality, evidence, and age-appropriate teaching of these subjects. This policy outlines how the school’s RSE and health education curriculum will be organised and delivered, to ensure it meets the needs of all pupils.
