Relationships Education including Sex Education (RSE)
Through the delivery of Relationships Education we intend to further our school’s aims of providing a curriculum which is relevant to the needs of pupils, both now and in the future. It will enable pupils to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes which enhance their personal development and wellbeing. This will have a direct, positive effect on their progress and achievement in school.
All adults in school will work towards achieving these aims for Relationships Education. We seek to enable our children to:
- develop interpersonal and communication skills;
- develop positive, personal values and a moral framework that will guide their decisions and behaviour;
- respect themselves and others, their views, backgrounds, cultures and experiences;
- develop respectful, caring relationships based on mutuality, reciprocation and trust;
- develop their ability to keep themselves and others safe, physically and emotionally, both on and off line;
- develop their understanding of a variety of families and how families are central to the wellbeing of children;
- recognise and avoid coercive and exploitative relationships;
- explore relationships in ways appropriate to their age and stage of development;
- value, care for and respect their bodies;
- build confidence in accessing additional advice and support for themselves and others.
During the school year we also have whole school RSE themed weeks so that learning can really be embeded and children become comfortable with the content and more open and confident to discuss any concerns they may have with trusted adults. We use resources from the NSPCC to follow their PANTS and Speak Out, Stay Safe programs. More information for parents on these campaigns can be found below:

We teach Relationships Education within our PSHE curriculum, following the Cambridgeshire Primary Personal Development Program. You can also look at the PSHE section of our website for more information about RSE and read the RSE Curriculum Statement of Intent document below.
