PSHE Relationship & Sex Education

What is Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)?


Pupils at Cumwhinton School need knowledge that will help them to make good, informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships in order to be happy and successful throughout life. 


Everyone faces difficult decisions in their lives so we want our pupils to put this knowledge gained from our RSE Curriculum  into practice.


Our RSE curriculum will support pupils to develop their resilience, to know how and when to ask for help from trusted adults around them.


Our RSE curriculum also helps us to promote the moral, spiritual, social, cultural, mental and physical well-being of all our pupils.


'Our RSE curriculum is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. It is about understanding the importance of marriage for family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality and sexual health. 


It is not about the promotion of sexual orientation or sexual activity – this would be inappropriate teaching.” [Sex and Relationships Education Guidance ref DfEE 0116/2000].'
