As a part of your child’s educational experience at Harrington Hill Primary School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
The Department for Education has announced changes to Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). These changes came into effect in September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements, making Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education. It has been 20 years since the last review of these curriculum areas, and in that, time the world has changed significantly. Children now face new challenges: they have to process lots of information from different sources (e.g. TV, the internet, social media), understand how society is changing and understand risks they may face – this all puts pressure on their physical and mental health. We believe relationships and sex education is important for our pupils.
