During term 6, your child’s class will be taking part in lessons which will focus on the relationships and sex education (RSE) aspect of our curriculum. Lessons in years 2-6 will include pupils learning about Growing and Changing, including puberty (Years 2-5), and Healthy Relationships, including keeping safe and sex education (Year 6). This is the second time we will be using this scheme of work and it was incredibly successful last year in putting down the foundations for the children when understanding their own stages of growing up. The RSE is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. Please see below for more detail about our RSHE curriculum. All PSHE teaching will take place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values.

The new RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) curriculum became statutory in September 2020 and we now deliver this as part of our curriculum at Rocks Park, as we feel it links so strongly with our 6 school values. The school uses PSHE Solutions to deliver it's RSHE curriculum and the lesson plans can be found here. Not all lessons in here will be taught but you can always ask for more information from your child's teacher.

Our school’s vision for RSHE is

“For all our pupils to learn an increased independence through their school years that strengthens their resilience and aspirations for the future, allows them to respect and celebrate the diverse world we live in and ensures they display a positive and caring attitude to themselves and each other, both physically and mentally.”

What is the purpose of our RSHE curriculum?

We want to enable children to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life.

  • the knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships

  • the opportunity to put knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts.

  • recognition that everyone faces difficult situations in their lives – how can we support children to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support

Why is there new guidance now? What is it about?
