Curriculum - RHSE


This subject has a vital role in the development of children's emotional and behavioural well-being.


Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is a planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that help young people grow and develop. RSE education can be described as 'learning to live life well' and deals with real life social and economic issues affecting children & young people, their families and communities.


RSE education is important because:

 • it makes a major contribution to the health and achievement of children and young people
 • it contributes to the welfare and safety of children and young people
 • it helps to increase children's independence and ultimately enables them to take  responsibility for themselves
 • it prepares them for their future role as parents, employees and leaders


We teach RSE because pupils benefit from learning how to lead healthy lifestyles, manage their feelings, build positive relationships and become financially capable. RSE is taught all the way through the school, from Foundation to Year 2. A topic is taught each term ranging from New Beginnings to Changes. Many of the lessons are more discussion-based and it is a chance for children to talk about issues and explore ways of dealing with their feelings and emotions.


We ensure that the children experience the process of democracy in school through Class and School Councils. We teach them about rights and responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.


Specific areas within the RSE curriculum such as internet safety and Sex and Relationships Education (RSE) are taught discreetly at an age and stage appropriate level in Key Stage One.
