R(S)HE is comprised of three main strands-
HEALTH AND WELLBEING - physical wellbeing, mental health, ourselves, growing and changing, keeping safe
LIVING IN THE WIDER WORLD - responsibilities, communities, media and digital resilience, economic well being, aspirations, career
RELATIONSHIPS - families and close positive relationships, caring friendships, respectful relationships, online relationships, being safe
Why is RSHE important?
Our children are growing up in an increasingly complex world with new opportunities, but also new challenges. We, as a school, want our pupils to flourish in the world they find themselves in and to work hard throughout all curriculum areas in order to give them the skills and knowledge they need to help prepare them for life.
RSHE teaching is an important part of equipping our pupils for life in 21st century Britain, enabling them to embrace diversity, helping them to 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.
