Primary RHSE


The Short Stay School for Norfolk prides itself on delivering effective, age-appropriate relationship, sex and health education (RSHE) that meets the needs of all our pupils within an inclusive and supportive learning environment; using non-biased resources. RSHE is taught by experienced and skilled teaching staff who are committed to preparing your child to live and learn safely in the modern world, negotiating the transition into increasing independence with the development of knowledge, values and skills to make positive, healthy and safe choices.


RSHE will deliver a spiral curriculum that enables pupils to build on their prior learning by revisiting some themes to further develop knowledge, values and skills in an age and stage-appropriate manner. As such, some themes are repeated to enable a deeper exploration of the related issues. Please see overleaf for RSE Curriculum.


We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that none of the teaching materials or strategies should shock pupils and are planned in line with national guidance. All lessons will be taught in a strictly non-judgemental and non-biased manner, to allow your child the opportunity to consider the information and develop their own values, attitudes and opinions about the topic. We would encourage you to discuss your child’s relationships and sex education with them at home. This is an opportunity for you to share your family values in relation to the topics, building strong channels of communication about emotions, the human body and relationships with your child.


If you would like to know more information about our programme of relationships and sex education, please use the following links to familiarise yourself with the RSHE policy and read the ‘Top tips for talking to your child’ attached.


Please feel free to contact the school if you would like to discuss our programme of relationships and sex education on an individual basis.
