What is Education for Safeguarding?

The West Sussex Education for Safeguarding curriculum is intended to become the universal provision for all schools. It is designed to enable you to develop a needs based curriculum for all pupils in your school whilst also ensuring that the national expectations for RSHE are fully addressed.

By enabling our children and young people to develop their own skills, knowledge and understanding of how to be who they are, understand the world they are growing up in and how to keep themselves safe in all areas of their world, we believe that we are giving each and every one of them the best chance for their lives ahead.

The West Sussex Education for Safeguarding (E4S) curriculum is based on the national Department for Education Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) guidance and numerous national frameworks, including the PSHE Association, but adapted and enriched for schools in West Sussex. This has been developed via a multi-agency approach combining teams from Safeguarding in Education, Contextual Safeguarding, Health and Education in West Sussex.
