Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) and Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is the aspect of the curriculum concerned with the process of growing up and maturing physically and emotionally. Our aim is that children are prepared to meet the range of changes in their lives with accurate information and the confidence and skills to make healthy choices.
The materials used through school are those commonly used in schools within the city and are available for parents and carers to view and discuss. Topics covered include:
Families and friendships
Forming healthy relationships
Physical health and mental wellbeing
Exploring personal identity and emotions
Identifying stereotypes and prejudice
Reducing discrimination and bullying
Celebrating diversity and promoting equity
Learning about community and governance
Understanding nationality and belonging
Exploring cultures, traditions and religious perspectives
Understanding puberty (physical and mental changes)
Sex Education (optional in Year 6)
Parents and carers have the right to withdraw their children from sex education, but we would, as ever, encourage any parent or carer to discuss their concerns with the school first.
