Relationships, sex and health education (RSHE)

At Shotton Hall we work hard to teach young people about relationships and the issues that surround them. Our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum is delivered through assemblies, tutor time and within Philosophy for Learning (P4L) lessons.

Our RSE policy outlines our commitment to teaching young people about these important aspects of life and includes an overview of the content which is taught within school. We also have a governor responsible for overseeing RSE and the school council who play a vital role in shaping and developing the RSE curriculum.

What do students learn about?

Relationships education: building positive and healthy relationships with friends and family members, respect for others, online relationships, positive emotional and mental wellbeing and staying safe.

Sex education: considering aspects such as consent, healthy choices, contraception and STIs.

Health education: teaching the characteristics of good physical health, healthy eating and mental wellbeing. As well as recognising basic first aid and the changing adolescent body.

The full P4L RSHE curriculum and key content is available for download below in addition to the government's statutory agenda.
