Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) at Burlington Danes Academy is taught as part of the PSHCE programme through a series of lessons from Years 7 to 11. These lessons work alongside other aspects of sex related education that are addressed in Science and Religious Education.
The objective of SRE at Burlington Danes is to help and support young people through their physical, emotional and moral development. The full programme, embedded in PSHCE, helps all students learn to respect themselves and others and move with confidence from childhood through adolescence into adulthood.
At Burlington Danes, SRE contributes to promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all students at the academy and of society and aims to prepare young people for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. The SRE programme respects that Burlington Danes in a Church of England School, and is sensitive to those children within the school community who are of other faiths.
Our PSHCE schedule is based on the guidance from the ‘PSHE Education Programme of Study.’ PSHE Association 2017
