Greenhill Primary School

Relationships, Sex &Health Education (RSHE)

At Greenhill, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.

As you may already be aware, the Department for Education announced changes to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)  alongside Health Education following nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found below

The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.

Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.

Consequently, from September 2020, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), along with Health Education, is statutory and forms part of the National Curriculum.

We have reviewed our RSE and health curriculum and policy so we can be sure our RSE and health provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:

  • Age
  • Physical and emotional maturity
  • Religious and cultural backgrounds
  • Special educational needs and disabilities

This policy was written in consultation with parents and other stake holders in our school community. 

At Greenhill, we use a variety of resources to teach and discuss RSE and Health Education to our children. As our PSHE curriculum is interweaved with the requirements for RSE and Health Education, our main resource for PSHE - 1Decision is used extensively to teach and facilitate RSE and Health Education.
