Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) is lifelong learning about physical, sexual, moral and emotional development. It is about the understanding of the importance of stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care for family life. It involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes.
By law primary schools are required to teach relationships and health education, alongside National Curriculum Science and within the context of Safeguarding.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our RSHE Consultation in Autumn 2020. We had 118 responses to the parent/carer questionnaire and we held face-to-face meetings with all parents who requested them. Below is a summary of the key findings and subsequent changes we will be introducing to our policy as a result of this consultation.
