CES Support Documentation
It provides a framework for the expected standards of RSE in terms of:
- Leadership and Management
- Developmental Teaching and Learning
- Assessment and Evaluation
- Working with Parents and the Wider School Community
- Partnership Engagement
The document contains some suggested processes by which a school governing body might review and develop its policy on RSE. It is applicable to both primary and secondary schools and consists of eight successive steps. Schools may wish to consider whether to assign the first three or four steps to a small group of governors and staff, and to involve a wider group in the remaining steps.

Teachers deal extremely well with sensitive and controversial issues ensuring that students feel secure and able to express their opinions and reach their own judgements.
