R-PSHE

(Relationships and Health Education)

Thank you for visiting our RHE page.

 

As you may have heard, the Government have made RHE teaching at primary schools compulsory (statutory) from the Summer term 2021 onwards.  We have been working very hard to adapt our current programme to fit with the new expectations and we are pleased to report there are not that many changes we need to make.  

The main thing for you to be aware of is that there is a key difference between RHE and RSE.  RHE (Relationships and health education) is taught at primary schools and RSE (relationships and sex education is taught in secondary schools).  The powerpoint below will explain more about what RHE (or RPSHE as we are calling it) will look like at St Paulinus.

Parental feedback

I very much appreciate being invited into school to learn more about how the school is teaching my child. I would have been interested in other subjects earlier in the school as well. Thanks.

An excellent and informative introduction on the new RSE programme in school.

Nice and informative. I am happy that my children are learning about HEALTHY relationships.’

I think the program is a wonderful idea.
