Sex Education Policy
Sex Education is broadly defined to include all dimensions of sexual development. As well as providing factual knowledge, we aim to promote self-esteem, respect for others and a sense of personal responsibility. Specifically, we will:
- Create an atmosphere in which students feel able to ask questions and discuss sexual matters.
- Combat ignorance and increase understanding by building on what students think, feel and understand about the physical, emotional and social aspects of human sexual development.
- Develop the ability of students to determine their own values within a moral framework.
- Encourage students to make decisions about their behaviour which reflect concern for themselves and others.
- Recognise and value differences such as individual sexuality, rates of growth or family relationships.
- Challenge sexism and prejudice in society and promote equal opportunities.
