The Department for Education is introducing compulsory Relationships Education for primary pupils and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) for secondary pupils from September 2020. Also, from September 2020 it will be compulsory for all schools to teach Health Education. The Jubilee Academy has consulted with the school community including staff, students , parents carers to hear their views to create and develop the new RSHE policy which will be taught from September 2020
Through these subjects, we want to support all young people to be happy, healthy and safe – we want to equip them for adult life and to make a positive contribution to society. Throughout our engagement process as we developed this curriculum, we have heard a number of wide ranging concerns.

The Department for Education has announced changes to relationships and sex education (RSE).
These changes will come into effect from September 2020 and all schools will be required to comply with the updated requirements.
This means that we’ll be reviewing our RSE curriculum and policy so we can be sure our RSE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:
- Physical and emotional maturity
- Religious and cultural backgrounds
- Special educational needs and disabilities
