What is RSE?
Relationship and sex education (RSE) is the process of lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. It is about the importance of family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It is about the teaching of sex, sexuality and sexual health. You can find out more in our RSE Guide for Parents.
What does RSE mean to Lincoln Minster School?
Our RSE provision will give students the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds, not just intimate ones. It will enable them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend.
It will teach what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in a relationship, including how to construct an intimate relationship positively. It will teach students to understand human sexuality and to respect themselves and others.
As a school we believe that knowledge about safer sex and sexual health is important to ensure that young people are equipped to make safe, informed and healthy choices as they progress through their adult life.
This should be delivered in a non-judgemental, factual way to allow scope for students to ask questions in a safe environment.
