Relationships & Health Education

At Totley All Saints, we are proud of our Relationships & Health Education (RHE) Programme & see it as an important way of helping children to make sense of growing up as well as some of the bigger questions in life. The feedback from parents & carers over the years has always been extremely positive with them seeing it as very informative for their children as well as a fantastic starting point for what can sometimes be a very difficult conversation at home.



Related imageWhilst some elements of the programme may be taught throughout the year as part of Science curriculum (particularly Y2 & Y5 in the ‘Animals Including Humans’ and Y6 in their ‘Evolution & Inheritance’ topics) most of it will be taught during the spring term as part of our Personal, Social, Health & Emotional (PSHE) curriculum.

To find out more about our PSHE Curriculum, please visit our PSHE curriculum page.

As part of this work, we cover the various ‘life processes’ (MRS NERG) for both animals & humans but will have a particular focus on relationships, healthy living & growing up.

The content covered as part of each year group can be seen in our Growing up bookletGROWING UP AT TASS booklet. This provides information about the content for each year group & can also provide parents & carers with a helpful starting point to discuss issues that can be hard to broach.

Please be assured that, as always, the topic will be covered with great sensitivity & provide opportunity for children to reflect, ask questions & to discuss their views on this vital aspect of life & learning.

Parents & carers will be informed of planned RHE sessions in curriculum news information sheets on a termly basis.

Parents have the right to withdraw their children from the aspects of the RHE session when actual sex education is taught,  but cannot withdraw from the other aspects or those which are taught as part of National Curriculum Science. In such instances, parents will need to ask for permission from the Headteacher. Any parent wishing to discuss this aspect of the curriculum in more detail should contact the class teacher for more information.
