Relationships, Health and Sex Education

At Fernwood Primary and Nursery School we pride ourselves on delivering a curriculum that is in line with the Protected Characteristics from the Equality Act 2010. The Protected Characteristics are as follows: age, disability, race, religion/belief, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, sex (male/female), sexual orientation and gender re-assignment. These are taught throughout the whole school, appropriate to the age and stage of the child.


The following document shows where the Protected Characteristics are taught in our curriculum. Our aim is to provide the children with a breadth of understanding not only through lessons but also through assemblies, themed days, trips, visitors and our school culture.
