Manchester Health Academy’s RSE Policy was developed in consultation with staff, students and parents.
Themes at both key stage 3 and 4 include:
Relationship Sex Education (RSE) is lifelong learning about the emotional and cultural developments of students, and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. RSE involves a combination of sharing information and exploring issues and values. RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity.
We know that many families wish to talk about these topics with their children and do their own research. The links below offer a wide range of information and guidance on relationships and sex as well as a wide range of other issues.
If you have any concerns about Relationship and Sex Education at Manchester Health Academy, please contact Ms H Mullen, Assistant Principal: Personal Development, Ms L Maguire, Safeguarding Officer or Ms R Nield, Safeguarding Officer.
We plan to hold a Parent Forum session on the topic of RSE during Half Term 6.
