We aim for our children to be knowledge about the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, how to stay healthy both physically and mentally and how to navigate the online and real world. Our curriculum fulfils the duties of the new statutory guidance on Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education. We know the importance of enabling our pupils to be ready to meet the challenges in their lives and growing evidence suggests that the skills and attributes acquired through RHE education have a significant impact on pupils' academic achievement, employability and future life chances.
Our curriculum is:
RHE is taught weekly for approximately 30 minutes in dedicated lessons and subject specific lessons, e.g. science and computing. Children are taught in mixed groupings unless single sex sessions are more appropriate. Lessons are adapted to suit those with additional needs and at times delivered 1:1 or in small groups. Content is delivered by the class teacher and other members of school staff.
Extra-curricular opportunities are given to pupils to share and apply their learning, e.g. Participation in the Article 12 Council, Eco Council, Young Leaders award, class assemblies and school productions and school visits.
We are always happy to discuss any questions you may have about the content of the curriculum and how we teach it. The document below will gives lots of information and please do speak to the RHE leader, Hattie Friedman.
