Relationships and Sex Education
At Barclay Academy we aim to provide a balanced sex and relationships education programme which combines the emotional, physical, moral, legal and social aspects of sex and relationships.
In addition to the National Curriculum requirements in both Science and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics’, we deliver sessions through the tutor programme as well as timetable drop down days. Material covered includes healthy relationships, sexually transmitted infections, contraception and pregnancy, and the safe use of social media.
We encourage the students to explore their own attitudes and values providing them with the skills to manage their relationships in a responsible and healthy manner. As we seek to prepare our students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, we regard sex and relationships education as an important part of their learning.
If for any reason you wish to excuse your child from receiving sex education at school please contact the relevant Head of Year.
