The Department for Education (DFE) have introduced new regulations that will make Relationships and Health Education (RHE) compulsory in primary schools. To help parents/carers understand the changes and new curriculum, we have set up this webpage and relevant information and guidance.
Please read through the information provided below and parent information video on RHE at Meadow Green Primary School. We would like parents/carers to then complete our RHE questionnaire and give their feedback. The questionnaire will be open on Tuesday 6th July and close on Friday 16th July.
Thank you for your cooperation.
At Meadow Green Primary School we place a high value on the development of the ‘whole child’. The teaching of Personal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE) education underpins children’s development as people and supports their learning capacity. PSHE also forms part of our wider, holistic approach to addressing sensitive subjects and protection our pupils. Through our PSHE curriculum, we aim to provide children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society. We value PSHE as one way to support children’s development as individuals, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice and to equip them for life and learning.
From September 2020, PSHE incorporates statutory Relationships Education and Health Education for all primary school pupils. At Meadow Green, we include statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme; some elements will also be reinforced through links in other areas of the curriculum such as Science and Religious Education.
