(Relationships and Sex Education) and Health Education
At Woodham Ley Primary School, we believe in providing a broad and balanced curriculum for our pupils that also involves a comprehensive RSE (relationships and sex education) and Health scheme of work. We have RSE lessons from EYFS up to year 6 which follows the Christopher Winter Project (CWP) resource ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’. This programme reflects the recent developments in RSE and the Science National Curriculum and has been quality assured by the PSHE Association.
Christopher Winter RSE Project
Within the resource there is an increased focus on safeguarding/keeping children safe. The resource also encourages children to develop the skills of listening, empathy, talking about feelings and relationships with families and friends.
The resources in this scheme are age and developmentally appropriate.

PSHE Association Training and Development Lead Jenny Barksfield says:
“We awarded the Christopher Winter Project’s ‘Teaching SRE with confidence in Primary Schools’ our quality mark as it achieves exactly what it says on the tin: it provides everything a Primary practitioner would need to be confident that the SRE they’re providing is comprehensive, balanced, developmental and in line with best practice in PSHE teaching and learning. The lessons incorporate a wide variety of learning activities and a range of assessment opportunities. The teacher’s guide is thorough and supportive.”
