RSHE Curriculum

RSHE Curriculum


Statutory 'Relationships, Sex and Health Education' at key stage 3 and 4 came into effect from September 2020. This statutory content — sometimes referred to as ‘RSHE’ — makes up the majority of schools’ PSHE education.


RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity.RSE involves a combination of sharing information, and exploring issues and values. RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity.


We have developed the curriculum in consultation with parents, pupils and staff, taking into account the age, needs and feelings of pupils. SESN aims to provide young people with relevant and appropriate information in order that they are
able to make safe and informed choices about their own behaviour and lifestyles as laid out in Appendix One of our RSHE Curriuclum Policy which can be read here


We held a Parent and Carers 'Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) Parental Consultation' in June 2021. You can access the result from this consultation here
