As a part of your child’s education at Longsands Academy, students learn and participate in our Personal Development curriculum. Personal Development gives young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential. As part of the Personal Development curriculum, Relationship and Sex Education is a statutory requirement from the Department of Education (DFE) for us as an Academy to deliver.
We are revising our RSE policy (click here to view) which we invite you to read and offer any thoughts or feedback as we finalise it. It will also offer you a chance to see what your child will be taught and when and how we plan to deliver RSE aspects of Personal Development. The policy has been developed from research models of good practice and the Curriculum can be found at Appendix 2.

We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to ensure our students receive the best education possible and we value the parental consultation is an important aspect of this.
