Relationship and Health Education
Relationship and Health Education became a statutory curriculum subject from September 2020 but, due to COVID, the actual start date has been put back to September 2021.
The full Department for Education document can be read by clicking here.
HGJS has already asked parents and carers to share their views on this curriculum as we develop it to meet the statutory needs and we collected parental voice in February 2021.
We now have our new policy, taking into account parental and stakeholder views and the additional detail that the DfE has recently provided around what to cover in the curriculum. The DfE has put a lot more emphasis on mental health and wellbeing aspects of RHE.
Years 5 and 6 will be learning about puberty as part of the Relationship and Health Education. If you wish to learn more about what we cover during these sessions, please watch the video below. This video is for parent information only and must not be shared with the children as we will cover what is needed in the puberty sessions in school.
