In line with the National Curriculum, pupils in Year 6 will be taught the Relationship and Sex Education unit of work; Growing and Changing; Reproduction, Birth and puberty, during the week commencing 24th May 2021.

The sessions will be held separately for boys and girls.

Children will have the opportunity to ask questions, so we can address any concerns or worries that they may have, as well as having an opportunity to write about what they already know.

If you would like to view the materials and resources we will be presenting, ahead of your child taking part in this unit of work, please follow the following link:
