RSE Parent Consultation

RSE Consultation 


As you may be aware, The Department for Education had announced changes to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). These changes have now come into effect in all schools and we are therefore obliged to comply with the updated requirements. This means, that alongside everything else, we have been in the process of reviewing our RSE curriculum and policy, so we can be sure our provision meets the Government criteria and is appropriate for our children based on:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND)
  • What pupils need to know to be healthy and safe in school, in their personal relationships and in the wider world

At Gilthill we value the education provided by the RSE and PSHE curriculum in preparing our children for the wider world, their place in it and to be respectful, tolerant and accepting of all.


We would very much welcome your support and comment, so we would like to share with you a parent and carer consultation document, which we would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to read the attached documentation and share any of your views via the parents response form. 


Many thanks for your support

Mrs Walton (RSE Leader) 

Parental Consultation Outcomes


We recently invited you to complete our RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) Parental Consultation and would like to thank you for taking part.
As a school community we are committed to working in partnership with parents and all stakeholders within it and, as such, your feedback is invaluable. We have responded to all of the feedback given by parents in the following document.

SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship


From the consultation we have purchased a new RSE/PHSE Scheme called Scarf. This scheme is a whole school approach designed to promote positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. 

Please see the new whole school overview attached here.
