Cherrywood Community Primary School


RSHE - Relationship, Social/Sex, Health and Economic Educations


In 2019 the DfE released guidance on Relationship and Sex Education. This guidance became statutory in September 2020, with the view that it is established in schools by September 2021. Miss Guest and Mrs Butler have looked through this guidance and have created a curriculum which combines the statutory guidance and what was previously the PHSE curriculum. 


Each half-term all year groups will teach a day of RSHE. The curriculum is designed as an enquiry​​​​​​​ based model, meaning each day there is a big questions which is then broken into 5 smaller questions. Throughout the day the children will engage in lessons designed to answer the questions. 



What do we think about the new RSHE curriculum? 


"Having full RSHE days gives us more time to talk about everything" - Y5


"It's good because it's about real life things" - Y3


"It helps us know what to do in hard situations that might upset us" - Y6
