In Graham School, high quality Relationships and Sex Education and Health and Wellbeing lessons are provided for all pupils. The delivery of these lessons is statutory from 2020; therefore, all school’s across the country have an obligation to ensure pupils receive a high quality provision that supports their development and wellbeing.
Parents do have the right to withdraw pupils from Relationship and Sex Education lessons: if you wish to do this, please make an appointment with the Philosophy and Ethics subject leader in school. Graham School does not support selective withdrawal from RSE. Our school has a duty to supervise pupils withdrawn from RSE, though not to provide additional teaching or to incur extra cost. Where the pupil has been withdrawn, alternative arrangements will be made for RSE of the kind the parents/guardians want the pupil to receive.
