Sex and Relationship Education
Sex and relationships education, (SRE) involves learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health. Some aspects are taught in science, and others are taught as part of personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE).
At Brooklands, our aim is for SRE to equip children with the information, skills and values to have safe, fulfilling and enjoyable relationships, and to take responsibility for their sexual health and wellbeing. As a school, we focus on attitudes, values and skills as well as knowledge and understanding. This includes developing children’s self-esteem and positive body image, giving children the skills to manage relationships and most importantly teaching children the knowledge and understanding of how to keep themselves safe in all of their relationships.
