Sex Education

The Governing Body support the inclusion of sex education in the school, provided it is fully integrated into the curriculum and not taken out of context or over emphasised.

Reception, Year 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be discussing the NSPCC’s PANTS rules in our PSHE lessons as part of the curriculum.

We will be teaching our pupils how to stay safe by learning the PANTS rules, which the NSPCC have developed to be like a Green Cross Code for staying safe. PANTS stands for:

  • Privates are private.
  • Always remember your body belongs to you.
  • No means no.
  • Talk about secrets that upset you.
  • Speak up, someone can help.

If you would like to know more about the NSPCC’s campaign and learn how you can help keep your children safe in partnership with Ysgol Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, more information can be found at nspcc.org.uk/pants.

The lessons will introduce a range of ideas, all delivered in a way that’s fully age-appropriate, empowering pupils without using any frightening words. During these discussions we will aim to teach our pupils the following important safety skills without giving explicit information or telling scary stories.
