Themes within RSE

Whilst there is no set curriculum for Relationships and Sex Education, we build upon the PSHE Association programme of study for PSHE and the OFSTED (2013) recommendations to specify that Relationships and Sex Education should include reference to the following themes in an age and stage appropriate way. By the end of KS4 all of these themes should have been covered.
