Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) Policy

Education, in its widest sense, should aim to develop the qualities in young people and allow them to make positive contributions to their local, and wider communities as they enter post-16 education, training or employment. These qualities of confidence, resilience, self-worth and respect for others will stand them in good stead for their own individual, personal and social development as well as academic achievement.
• Under the Education Act 2002/Academies Act 2010 all schools must provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which:

• promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society.
• prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

The 2006 Education and Inspections Act which came into effect in September 2007, laid a duty on Governing Bodies ‘to promote the well-being of pupils at the school’.
