The aims of relationships and sex education (RSE) at our school are to: 

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place 
  • Prepare pupils for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene 
  • Help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy 
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships 
  • Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies 

Our vision statement makes clear out intent to ‘celebrate the uniqueness of every child’, and to ‘support them to flourish and shine in all they do, preparing them for life’s journey’. A robust, clear and imaginatively delivered, engaging RSE allows us to provide this for all. 


We use myHappymind to support our teaching of both PSHE and RSE. myHappymind is a mental health and well-being programme to support children in learning habits to support their own mental health. It does also cover all the mandatory objectives from the DfE Relationships Education Curriculum and also around 70% of the PSHE objectives.
