Our curriculum content builds on the Early Years Framework aspects of Personal, Social and Emotional Development and the ‘Building Relationships’ Early Learning Goal. At Laycock Primary School we do not offer additional content on sex education over and above that delivered within the Science statutory curriculum and the statutory Health Curriculum content. Puberty content is taught in years 4, 5 and 6 through the themes of ‘It’s My Body’ and ‘Growing Up’ and parents will be informed prior to curriculum delivery, but do not have the right to withdraw their children from this element of curriculum delivery. This content is taught as follows:
- Year 4 – About the physical and emotional changes that happen when approaching and during puberty, (including menstruation for girls);
- Year 5 – Preparing boys and girls for the changes that adolescence brings.
- Year 6 – How the process of puberty relates to human reproduction.
