At Brampton, we understand that pupils must be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adult life. A key part of this relates to relationships and health education, which must be delivered to every primary-aged pupil. Although not statutory to deliver sex education outside of the science curriculum at primary level, the DfE recommends that all primary schools have a sex education programme in place, which Brampton leaders are in agreement with and have, therefore, included in the school's curriculum. We understand our responsibility to deliver a high-quality, age-appropriate and evidence-based relationships, health and sex curriculum for all our pupils. 


We recommend that parents/carers read our RSHE Policy containing details of our RSHE curriculum and approach:

Each year, we review and update this policy. As part of the annual review, we conduct a consultation with parents/carers to ensure they are in agreement with our curriculum and approach. Presentation slides from our most recent consultation are available here:

As per DfE statutory guidance, parents and carers have the right to request that their child be withdrawn from all or part of the non-statutory sex education curriculum. This right to be withdrawn does not apply to relationships education or health education, which are statutory requirements. 


Any requests to be withdrawn from non-statutory sex education must be made in writing to the Headteacher at the earliest opportunity. Any such request will automatically be granted, but the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher will request a meeting with the parent/carer to discuss their request, to ensure that their wishes are understood, and to clarify the nature and purpose of the curriculum; if appropriate, this discussion may also include conversation with the pupil. The Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher will also discuss with the parent/carer the benefits of receiving this important education and any adverse effects that withdrawal may have on the pupil – this could include, for example, possible social and emotional effects of being excluded. The Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher will keep a written record (template below) of the discussion and will ensure that the pupil receives appropriate alternative education during the delivery of non-statutory sex education.
