RSHE Consultation Summer 2021

Relationship, Sex and Health education became statutory in September 2020 and it is the intention of Stroud Green Primary School to teach high quality, age appropriate, pupil-sensitive, evidence-based RSHE that demonstrates a respect for the law and all communities. It is expected that RSHE will help pupils to learn about themselves and the world they live in, giving them the skills, understanding and information they need for life. This will help them to stay safe and to flourish, not just in childhood, but into adulthood and for the rest of their lives. This is why RSHE is such an important part of the curriculum. Why are we teaching RSHE?

Because it is the right thing to do.

Our children are growing up in an increasingly complex world with new opportunities, but also new challenges. RSHE teaching is an important part of equipping our pupils for life in 21st century Britain, enabling them to embrace diversity, make the most of technology; understand the importance of, and develop the skills which lead to them being able to sustain healthy and strong relationships.

Relationships and health education is a statutory requirement for all primary schools in England. The government, Ofsted and local advisors recommend that sex education (how a baby is conceived and born) is also taught in primary school.
