Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)


At St Mary’s we teach Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) as part of our integrated PSHE curriculum. Some elements of RSHE are also taught through the PE, computing and science curriculums.
The RSHE curriculum at St. Mary’s is defined by the following aims:

  • To provide a carefully planned curriculum that covers human development, relationships, sexuality and family life
  • To help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, respect for others, confidence and empathy for others
  • To help pupils stay safe in a modern world
  • To prepare pupils for puberty, the changes their bodies will experience and the importance of health and hygiene
  • To teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies
  • To create a positive culture around the issues of sexuality and relationships
