Relationship and Sex Education

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and
living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting
opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young
people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic,
personal and social lives in a positive way.
The DFE have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools in

At Birchfield, we want to put in place the key building blocks of
healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts,
including online. This will sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy.
