Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE)

What does the new guidance mean? 

As you may be aware, from September 2020 the Department for Education is making Relationships and Health Education (Primary) and Relationships Sex Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools. The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships. 

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, it will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and will help them take responsibility for their own well-being. 

All of the sessions will be age-appropriate and meet the needs of all pupils in the class.  

How will this be delivered?

This guidance will form part of our school’s PSHE education programme which is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. All teaching in PSHE will take place in a safe learning environment and be underpinned by our school ethos and values.

What if I have questions?

I met with a number of parents and went through the new curriculum and what to expect; this was positively received. If you have any queries/concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
