Dear Corvus Parents/Carers,

This half term Corvus will be learning about the RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) aspect of their PSHE curriculum. In school we follow a recommended scheme called You, Me and PSHCE that carefully plans how this content is delivered to pupils in an age-appropriate way. For full details of our school RSE policy and the recent change in legislation relating the delivery of RSE please visit our school web site using this link.

This term our class will be looking at: emotional changes during puberty, discussing how it can feel and how we can be sensitive to others. We also look at physical changes of males and females, the human lifecycle and the parts of the body associated with reproduction and how they grow and change. This links very closely with our Science curriculum on Lifecycles and Animals, including humans.

It is usual that when pupils are taught RSE that they may come home with questions and new vocabulary following the sessions. While this can be a little tricky, we believe that being able to continue these conversations at home is an essential part of RSE.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I would be happy to talk through, show the resources or explain in more detail what we will be learning about.


Yours sincerely,

Lucy Racster


PE is on Thursday and Friday - Please can children come to school in their PE kit
