Relationships and Sex Education

As a part of your child’s educational experience at Queensway, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at:


The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.


Our school policy has been developed in consultation with all stakeholders and can be found by clicking here, or in the policy page of our website. 


We understand that the RSE policy is a very lengthy document but that parents may have some questions about what their child will be learning and how this will be taught in school. To make this information easily accessible we have identified some frequently asked questions and responses below. We hope you find everything you need here but if you need any further information please do contact us.
