Jarrow Cross C of E Primary School has always kept updated with the teaching RSE (Relationships and Sex Education), and in line with the new curriculum there is now a heavier focus on ‘relationships’ and there is a statutory requirement to teach all elements of RSE.
We are pleased to share with you that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a new Home Office approved project and will be working with one of twelve Safeguarding Liaison Officers. It is being led by Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Dame Vera Baird and Northumbria Police in partnership with Barnardo’s and Operation Encompass. The project, named Operation Encompass the Next Steps, aims to form part of a wider strategy to break the cycle of Domestic Abuse through education and support.
The project will help all children to learn about friendships, relationships, emotions and rules so that they can live and work together safely.
Before the end of Summer term, Year 2 and Year 6 will take part in the program. From September, we will be rolling out the sessions across all year groups in both KS1 and KS2.
These sessions are pitched appropriately and discuss friendships, emotions and empathy and rules and expectations. The session outlines/plans are attached to this page (below) so you can clearly see the content and learning outcomes of each session.
