PSHE and RSE
At Little Heaton C.E. Primary School respectful relationships are fundamental to our ethos and our success in being an inclusive, happy, caring and safe school. Our Relationships and Sex and Health Education supports our wider work in fostering pupil well-being and developing resilience and character.
We recognise that our pupils need to be provided with an education that prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
We aim to provide our pupils with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their relationships, including the ability to recognise healthy and respectful relationships.
Relationships and Sex and Health Education (RSHE) is lifelong learning about relationships, emotions, looking after ourselves and our families. It also creates an opportunity to enable pupils to be taught about positive emotional and mental wellbeing.
RSHE is part of our PSHE curriculum and many aspects of it are covered through the Heart Smart scheme. Some elements are a statutory part of the Science curriculum such as puberty and life cycles including reproduction.
