Sex Education Bonaly Primary School
Aims of the Evening • To give advance information on the school’s planned lessons and activities. • To define the role of parents in sex and relationship education.
Principles and Aims of Sex Education • Principles • Sex education can be defined as a lifelong process whereby children and young people acquire knowledge, understanding and skills and develop beliefs, attitudes and values about their sexuality and relationships within a moral and ethical framework.
The key principles are as follows • Sex education should be viewed as one element of health and well being set within the wider context of health promotion and the health promoting ethos of the school. • Sex education should contribute to the physical, emotional, moral and spiritual development of all young people within the context of today’s society. • Education about sexuality and relationships should reflect the cultural, ethnic and religious influences within the home, the school and the community. • Sex education should be non-discriminatory and sensitive to the diverse backgrounds and needs of all young people. • Sex education starts informally at an early stage with the parents and carers and continues through to adulthood both within the home and at all stages of school life.
The key aims of sex education are to: • Provide accurate and relevant information about the physical and emotional changes that children and young people will experience throughout their formative years and into adulthood. • Establish an awareness of the importance of stable family life and relationships, including the responsibilities of parenthood and marriage. • Provide opportunities for children and young people to develop personal and interpersonal skills that will enable them to make and maintain appropriate relationships within the family, with friends and within the wider community.
The key aims of sex education are to: • Provide opportunities to develop personal safety. • Enable children and young people to develop and reflect upon their beliefs, attitudes and values in relation to themselves and others within a moral, ethical and multicultural framework. • Foster self-awareness and self-esteem and a sense of responsibility and respect for themselves and others.
The key aims of sex education are to: • Provide opportunities for young people to consider and reflect upon the range of attitudes to gender, sexuality and sexual orientation, relationships and family life. • Develop an appreciation of and respect for, diversity and of a need to avoid prejudice and discrimination. • Provide information about the skills for accessing where appropriate agencies and services providing support and advice to young people.

The Role of Parents • Parents’ values can influence the young person’s attitudes and beliefs. • Parents are the principal source of continuing support to the young person. • Parents’ relationships can be closely observed by the young person. • In this school, we sometimes refer pupils to their parents for answers to ‘difficult’ questions.
Points to note • This programme gives no information on the appearance of stretch marks or sleepless nights. • There will be very little discussion in class on same sex relationships and contraception. • Each class will have a question box available. • In primary 7, there is usually a lesson on ‘slang’ names for body parts.
