Life Skills Curriculum

Life Skills at Heartwood 

Legislation passed in the Children and Social Work Act 2017 introduces Relationships Education (RSE) as a statutory requirement in primary schools. This applies to all schools in England.

New guidance and regulations are to be followed by all schools by September 2020.


Primary schools are being encouraged by the Department for Educations to provide sex education as well as Relationships Education. Parents have the option to withdraw their children from the sex element of the curriculum. 


We have a proposed curriculum which will be taught to all year groups. We are awaiting the restrictions of COVID-19 to meet with pupils and parents/guardians to use their views to shape the curriculum further. 


Miss Wellings is the schools Relationships, Sex and Health Education lead.
