Curriculum Statement

In September 2020 the Department for Education made Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) and Health education compulsory in all schools.

The rationale of PSHE lessons is to empower students to understand themselves and their minds in order to combat stress, pressures and influences that may cause harm, and know how to lead healthy, happy, fulfilling lives.

The aim of RSE is to give students the information they need to help them develop healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds. It should enable them to know what a healthy relationship looks like and what makes a good friend, a good colleague and a successful marriage or other type of committed relationship.

Students will learn what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour in relationships, develop an understanding of intimate relationships and how to resist coercive pressure.
