RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education)


RSHE is vital for the personal, social and emotional development of pupils.

It equips children and young people with the information, skills and values they need to have safe, respectful and enjoyable relationships and empowers them to take responsibility for their sexual health and well-being. We are guided by the aims of the DFE.

We seek to ensure our curriculum gives pupils the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will help them to:

  • value their health, wellbeing and dignity
  • build self-esteem and self-worth
  • accept and value their personal and identity and the personal identities of others
  • understand and make sense of the real-life issues they are experiencing in the world around them
  • manage and explore difficult feelings and emotions
  • consider how their choices affect their own wellbeing and that of others
  • develop as informed and responsible citizens
  • understand and ensure the protection of their rights throughout their lives.


RSHE will be delivered at Cholsey Primary School as part of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum, which has planned, timetabled lessons across all key stages, using a spiral curriculum approach (a course of study in which pupils will see the same topics throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning).

The subject coordinator will work closely with colleagues in related curriculum areas (e.g. Science, Computing and PE) to ensure a holistic and joined up approach to what is taught in RSHE.

Learning is supplemented using a whole school approach and utilising time outside of the classroom. For example, through assemblies, Art of Brilliance programme, mindfulness sessions, whole school topics and other events.
