Please find the statutory guidance Khalsa Secondary Academy will be following for implementing the Relationship and Sex Education programme of study here

The aim of RSE is to give young people the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds, not just intimate relationships. It will enable them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful marriage or other type of relationship.
