What is Relationships and Health Education?
RSE (Relationships Education) is learning accurate and age-appropriate skills, attitudes and knowledge about the body, reproduction, sex and sexual health. … Some aspects are taught in science, and others are taught as part of personal, social, health and education. (PSHE).
The school aims to provide a programme of Relationships Education (RSE) education in line with other schemes of work including: Personal Social Health Citizenship Education (PSHCE), science, e-safety and SEALs. This will be known in school and in this policy as as RHE – Relationships and Health Education.
In school we want RHE education to put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focussing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This will sit alongside the essential knowledge of how to be healthy. Teaching about mental wellbeing is central to these subjects. We know that children and young people are increasingly experiencing challenges and the RHE scheme of work will give them the knowledge and capability to take care of themselves and receive support if problems arise. The RHE curriculum should support the wider world of the school in helping foster pupil wellbeing and develop resilience and character that we know are fundamental to pupils being happy, successful and productive members of society.
