Relationship sex and health education (RSHE)
Intent - We aim to…
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.” PSHE Association.
PSHE includes the compulsory subjects of relationships and health education. Sex and relationship education is best taught as part of a comprehensive PSHE curriculum. The revised You, Me PSHE resource reflects modern times, with practical guidance and ideas, assisting schools to provide children with the vital, good quality PSHE lessons they are entitled to, to be safer in an ever- changing world.
