At Holy Trinity, good relationships are fundamental to our ethos and our success in being a happy, caring and safe school. Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is lifelong learning about relationships, emotions, looking after ourselves, different families, sex, sexuality and sexual health. Our RSE curriculum ensures that children are able to cherish themselves and others as unique and wonderfully made, keep themselves safe and able to form healthy relationships where they respect and afford dignity to others. It will provide pupils with age-appropriate knowledge (see curriculum overview for further information) that will enable them to navigate a world in which many will try to tell them how to behave, what to do and what to think. This is a responsibility that is shared between parents/carers and school.
At Holy Trinity, we follow the Christopher Winters Project: Teaching RSE with Confidence in Primary Schools. This provides a clear progression of age-appropriate knowledge and skills from foundation through to year 6. Clear lesson plans and resources give the teachers confidence to address what we recognise can be a challenging area of the curriculum to deliver. The lessons are clearly mapped to follow the National Curriculum for science and DfE Statutory Guidance on Relationships Education, Relationship and Sex Education and Health Education. The majority of RSE will be delivered through PSHE and science lessons.
The RSE curriculum covers the following areas (progressing from Reception up to year 6):
● Family and friendship
● Growing and Caring for Ourselves
● Valuing differences and keeping safe
● Growing Up
● Puberty, relationships and reproduction
Children will be confident to talk about their bodies, using correct terminology. They will be confident to talk about the changes their bodies go through as they grow and have a clear idea about positive and healthy relationships (including online relationships). The progressive scheme gradually builds up children’s knowledge and vocabulary, so that by the end of Year 6, children will have a clear understanding about the effects and purpose of puberty and reproduction (conception and pregnancy). The majority of progress will be assessed through class based discussion.
