RSE is a positive and protective part of the Curriculum for Wales. It plays a central role in supporting learners’ rights to enjoy fulfilling, healthy and safe relationships throughout their lives.
Central to the Curriculum for Wales is an aspiration for every child and young person to achieve the four purposes of the curriculum. A rights and equity based RSE curriculum helps ensure that all learners can develop an understanding of how people’s faith, beliefs, human rights and cultures are related to all aspects of RSE and how these rights can contribute to the freedom, dignity, well-being and safety of all people. Therefore, across the North Gower Partnership, we will discuss RSE in the context of the Rights protected by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
RSE across the NGP will support learners to develop the knowledge, skills and values to understand how relationships and sexuality shape their lives as well as the lives of others. Learners will be equipped and empowered to seek support on issues relating to RSE and to advocate for self and other.
In the North Gower Partnership we have designed and developed a curriculum tailored to our learners, making connections and developing authentic contexts for learning across the curriculum at a developmentally appropriate stage.
In the North Gower Partnership we will ensure that we meet the aims of objective and pluralistic RSE by continuing to use the developmentally appropriate stage resources currently recommended by Welsh Government.
