Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) provide vital tools to help your child navigate the adult world.
At Coleridge Primary School, we believe that RSE & PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives, in order to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
Under the new guidance issued by the DfE in September 2020, Relationships and Health Education at primary school became compulsory. We believe that, to be effective, RSE should always be taught within a broader PSHE education programme. RSE enhances, and is enhanced by, learning related to other topics, including anti-bullying; keeping safe on and off line; keeping physically and mentally healthy; learning about drugs, alcohol and tobacco; and the development of skills and attributes, such as communication skills, managing peer pressure, risk management, resilience and decision making.
