Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
As you may be aware, from September 2020 the Department for Education expects all schools to implement new statutory Relationships, Sex Education and Health Education curriculum (RSE) as part of their Personal Social Health Education program. In order to prepare for this we have been working with Birmingham Diocese and sought guidance from the Catholic Education Service.
The new curriculum focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, well-being, safeguarding and healthy relationships. Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, it will give young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and will help them take responsibility for their own well-being. Although we have always had a robust Personal Social Health Education program, this new guidance will make it even more comprehensive.
As a Catholic school, we provide the principal means by which the Church assists parents and carers in educating their children. The resources we will use to deliver RSE in Religious Studies lessons will be provided by Ten:Ten, a Catholic education organisation. The Catholic Education Service and Birmingham Diocese have endorsed and promoted the use of Ten:Ten resources in all secondary schools.

We value your consultation and collaboration with all parents and carers. If you would like further information, would like to ask any questions or share your perspectives please contact RSE@bishopchalloner.bham.sch.uk .
