Mill Green School provides an innovative, bespoke, and comprehensive PSHE programme throughout a young person’s time with us. This is delivered as a spiral programme that gradually expands and enriches key concepts, increases knowledge, deepens understanding, and rehearses and develops key skills through a thematic approach. The follows the three key themes in line with the PHSE Association best practice:

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Living in the Wider World
  • Relationships (including Sex Education)

Our programme has been uniquely designed to be relevant to our context, ensuring that it is relevant to our students, their lives inside and outside the school gate, and relevant to our local community. Mill Green is a diverse community, and so our programme reflects different values and beliefs and challenges students to consider a range of perspectives.

The planned programme is designed to help our young people deal with the difficult moral, social, and health-related issues that arise in their lives and in society. It also helps them to develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives as active members of society. In addition to this, the PSHE programme promotes fundamental British Values, which are taught implicitly in lessons and throughout all key stages. Our PSHE / RSHE programme covers all statutory elements that we are legally required to deliver from September 2020.

Parent’s Right to Withdraw

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from the non-statutory/non-science components of sex education within RSE up to and until 3 terms before their young person turns 16. After this point, if the young person wishes to receive sex education rather than being withdrawn, the school will arrange this.

A copy of withdrawal requests will be placed in the pupil’s educational record. Our Deputy Headteacher will discuss the request with parents and take appropriate action.

Alternative work will be given to pupils who are withdrawn from sex education
