Summary, Context and the Consultation Process
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Elmhurst School, we are committed to delivering high quality lessons in PSHE (which we refer to as Learning for Life) which gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
The Department for Education has made changes to Relationships and Sex Education (which falls under the PSHE Curriculum) following nationwide consultation which comes into effect this academic year and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. We will be beginning our Christopher Winters Project lessons in the Spring Term of 2021. The statutory guidance can be found in the link below:
