Relationships and Health Education
‘Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way’. (Excerpt taken from the Department for Education’s ‘Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education’ Statutory Guidance for Schools, updated July 2020).
Sedbergh Primary School uses the Coram Life Education SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, and Friendship) materials as a core structure for our Relationships Education and Health Education curriculum across all classes in school (see Progression Grid below). In addition, as guidance suggests, ‘Relationships Education, RSE and Health Education complement several national curriculum subjects’. School makes links between learning across subjects. Content in the science, PE, PSHE and computing elements of the curriculum all support learning about relationships and health.
