Relationships & Sex Education

Relationships and Sex Education at Belle Vue Girls' Academy

The aims of Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at our school are to:

  • Enable pupils to learn about what makes healthy relationships, including with family, friends and on-line, how to recognise unhealthy behaviour in relationships and how to seek help if they feel unsafe
  • Support pupils to develop self-respect, confidence and empathy
  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place
  • Prepare pupils for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene
  • Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies Teaching will be age appropriate and will respect the diversity of families and faith in our community
