Relationships, Sex & Health Education (RSHE) & Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE)
All other schools in England are required to produce a written policy following the guidance issued by the Department of Education on Relationships, Sex and Health education (RSHE). The DfE guidance can be found here. We teach this as part of our wider Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE).
Catholic schools are required to deliver Relationships Education in accordance with the teaching of the church. This approach is compatible with the guidance issued by the DfE.
RSHE is part of the mission of Catholic schools to educate the whole person. It should be carried out as part of the holistic education which seeks to form as well as inform young people in preparation for adult life. (Catholic Education Service)
All Saints’ is working in partnership with TenTen Resources to ensure the school implements a fully compliant Policy for Relationships Education (RSHE). For more information on what is taught (and when), please see below:
RSHE centres on helping children understand about relationships, their own feelings and issues relating to growing up e.g. friendships, bullying, personal changes. The work is often linked to our Statements to Live By and includes Teaching British Values. It is often addressed at different times throughout our curriculum and as part of our extended curriculum.
