Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) is an educational entitlement for all children and young people. It is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development and sex, sexuality and sexual health. It enhances the self-worth and confidence of each individual and encourages mutually respectful relationships and empathy for others.
Sex and Relationship Education has three main elements:
Attitudes and values
Personal and social skills
Emotions and relationships
The Trust provides a setting in which learners can be offered appropriate teaching about Sex and Relationship Education. The purpose of SRE is to assist children and young people to prepare for adult life by supporting them through their physical, emotional and moral development and helping them to understand themselves, respect others and form and sustain healthy relationships. The SRE programme reflects Trinity's ethos, is supported by its mission statement and encourages the trust values to ensure that all learners:
Learners receive information about sexually transmitted infections including HIV and AIDS and the importance of practising safe sex. learners also receive information about contraception and its importance in guarding against unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. The programme covers the legal implications of sexual behaviour.
Learners are made aware of people and places they can go to for appropriate help or advice. Again on theUpperSite, this is carried out in conjunction with the school health and Teenage Kicks.
