RSHE - Relationships, Sex and Health Education 

From Summer 2021, Relationships Education will be compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education. 

As a school we wholeheartedly support the philosophy of RSHE and believe it is best taught as part of the PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Economic Education curriculum. The programme seeks to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils as well as preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life in a digital age. 

Here is an example of one of the books that we use to learn about different types of families. 

And Tango makes three by Justin Richardson
