PSHCE at TJS!
Relationships and Sex Education (SRE) is a key aspect of Personal, Social and Health Education at Turnfurlong Junior School. As such, it is more than the biology of reproduction, and is taught within the context of caring relationships. The Relationships and Sex Education provided forms a foundation for further work in secondary schools, and the skills and attitudes developed will enable the children to lead healthy lives.
Parents are reminded of their rights under Section 241 of the Education Act 1993, to withdraw their children from any or all parts of the school's programme of sex education. However, most elements of this programme are part of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum Science Orders. It would be hoped that parents would discuss any concerns with the Headteacher or Head of Year before exercising their right to withdraw their child.
