At Redhill, we aim to ensure that all children are well-prepared for the world they face in the future – giving them the confidence, knowledge and resources they need to be successful. As part of this, we believe it is important that we give children the knowledge and skills they need to understand, develop and maintain healthy relationships throughout their life.
At the centre of our delivery of RSE in school, we aim to provide children with the following:
RSE in our school is a fundamental part of the PSHE curriculum. We have chosen to use the Respect Yourself scheme to deliver the main content of our RSE. This scheme teaches children to understand and respect themselves and their bodies as part of a healthy lifestyle approach. The RSE topic covers three areas: Choices and Challenges, Changes and Care and Commitment. In Year 5 and 6, there is a greater emphasis on the changes that occur in puberty. Year 6 follow the Shropshire RSE transition Programme which aims to support their ongoing emotional and physical development effectively, whilst encouraging better cross phase collaboration between Key Stages 2 and 3. Through the delivery of this scheme, we aim to provide a safe and secure learning environment in which children feel safe to express themselves, ask questions and develop their self-esteem.
