How do we teach RSE at Bolsover CE Junior School?

In school, we use Jigsaw for our PSHE (including RSE) curriculum. It is fully compliant with the DfE Statutory Relationships & Health Education Guidance. We will begin our SRE teaching in the summer term.


As a Church of England school, we also ensure our SRE curriculum follows their guidance and procedures. Check out the following information from The Church of England regarding SRE: The Church of England Article and Charter (PDF)
