Working from Home


Dear Parent,

Following our consultation period in the summer term, the Relationship, Health and Sexual Education (RSHE) policy and the associated programme are now finalised and have been formally adopted by the Governing Body.

All our modules are based around the statutory guidance provided by the government and focus on the following elements:

  • adopting a proactive safeguarding approach
  • teaching students mutual respect and a sense of responsibility
  • teaching age appropriate, pupil sensitive and evidence based RSHE that is guided by the law
  • complying with the relevant requirements of the Equality Act 2010

In order to help you gain a proper insight into our programme, we have compiled the following for you below: 

  • An information video about how RSHE is taught at the Chadwell Heath Academy
  • RSHE policy
  • Frequently asked questions
  • RSHE Schemes of Work
  • RSHE Schemes of Work with Dates
  • RSHE Classification of Lessons
  • Sample teaching material

Please keep in mind that although Relationships and Health Education are compulsory, parents retain the right to withdraw their child from Sex Education lessons. We have labelled these lessons clearly in the Schemes of Work and our decision process is outlined in the “Classification of Lessons” document.

If you feel uncertain about your child attending specific sex education lessons you must contact the Head of Year of your child’s year group directly: 

  • Year 7 – Ms Hand
  • Year 8 – Ms Howard
  • Year 9 – Ms Turner
  • Year 10 – Ms McGee
  • Year 11 – Mr Elia

Yours sincerely,

 Katja Hirnschrodt

Assistant Headteacher
