Rice Lane Primary School

Be happy together, Believe together, Achieve together


As part of PSHE at Rice Lane Primary School, during the Spring term, children throughout the school learn, in an age appropriate way, about relationship and sex education (RSE) within their lessons (Year 6 start this unit after their SATs tests).

As we do every year, we are offering a parents’ information session on Wednesday 21st February 2018, where parents/carers of the children in years 2-6 will be able to receive information about topics covered in lessons and have a look at some of the resources we use in our school.

Year 2, 3 and 4 parents and carers are invited to attend a session from 1.20-2.20

Years 5 and 6 parents and carers are invited to attend from 2.30-3.30

Do not worry if you cannot attend the session, as there is an overview of the topics covered in each year group attached below.

If you wish to attend either of these sessions, please sign up on Sims Agorra.
