RHE Parent Consultation - Led by Helen Inwood , Assistant Headteacher on 15/10/19 and 18/10/19.
Choosing a Secondary School - Led by Mrs Jo Lovatt, Parent Support Adviser on 7/9/18
In light of the changes made to the Children and Social Work Act, Grove Park will be making some amendments to its Relationships and Health Education curriculum and policy. A child’s Personal, Social and Health Education should be a partnership between schools and parents. Grove Park was keen to receive parental feedback with regards to our proposed new RHE curriculum. For this reason, two parental consultation sessions were held, one in the morning and one in the evening, in order to ensure maximum turn out. The consultations allowed for complete transparency with regards to the content of the proposed new curriculum. Parents were made aware of what content would be taught in each year group, how LGBTQ and Transgenderism would be addressed and the procedures for withdrawal. They were also given time to look at the resources, books and animations that would be used in each year group. Copies of the draft RHE policy were also made available to parents. Parents were encouraged to give anonymous feedback both during and after the session through the use of feedback slips. The draft RHE policy will be available to view on the website later this term and anonymous feedback slips will continue to be available from the school office.
