Relationships and Sex Education

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), along with Health Education, is now a statutory part of the National Curriculum. At Brindishe Schools, we want all children to grow up healthy, happy, safe, and be able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. The RSE, along with Health Education has been designed to equip your child with knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships as well as preparing them for a successful adult life. The world for all young people looks very different from the way it did 20 years ago when this curriculum was last updated – these changes bring the content into the 21st century, so that it is relevant for our children.

By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:

  • families and people who care for me
  • caring friendships
  • respectful relationships
  • online relationships
  • being safe

As part of Health Education, they will also have been taught content on:

  • mental wellbeing
  • internet safety and harms
  • physical health and fitness
  • healthy eating
  • facts and risks associated with drugs, alcohol and tobacco
  • health and prevention
  • basic first aid
  • changing adolescent body
