Relationships and Health Education (RHE)

From September 2020, it is a statutory requirement that all schools in England are teaching Relationship and Health Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. As part of implementing the RHE curriculum, schools must consult with stakeholders to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content. We are asking parents to read through the following documents:

  • PSHRE Policy
  • Year group overviews

These documents can be found under PSHRE below.

We have also provided the following leaflet below to support you with your understanding for the requirements of Relationship and Health Education.

  • DfE Guide for Parents

Please email any questions or comments to:
Your comments and questions will be reviewed as part of the consultation.

Thank You

Mrs Cranwell

Our Progressive PSHRE Curriculum

To ensure children are taught and remember the appropriate knowledge and skills relating to PSHRE, we have created a whole school progressive breakdown of the National Curriculum expectations, this draws on the skills and knowledge being taught across all subject areas and hopes to contribute to the development of key concepts and themes in a deep and connected way.


Subject Specific Vocabulary

Our PSHRE curriculum will ensure all children are not only taught subject specific vocabulary but also provide opportunities for them to use such language within the correct context with confidence and fluency.

Phase/Key Stage Breakdown

To ensure the highest emphasis is placed on both the teaching and the learning of new knowledge and skills we have also clarified when it will take place within our topics and the subject specific gains our children will make in terms of what they will know and be able to do.
