Some primary schools introduce sex and relationships education (SRE) for children, most often in year 6.
SRE is a legal requirement as it is part of the Science Orders National Curriculum. Most schools will have put down what they are going to do and why, in a Sex and Relationships Policy. You can always ask to see this.
Family Lives (previously Parentline Plus) can help parents in a number of different ways:
- You can look at their guidance and advice on their website
- You can call and talk to them about anything that is worrying you
- You can download information from their website
- You can call and they will send you a copy of any of their leaflets free of charge.
