Relationships Education

Statutory PSHE and Relationships Education Curriculum (including Parent Consultation)

From September 2020, we are now required to teach Relationships Education as part of our PSHE curriculum.  These documents published by the DfE (Department of Education) can be viewed below.  A Relationships Education policy will be in place by the end of the Spring term 2021 and on the website for parents to view.  We will be having a parent consultation about the policy in the Spring term.  High quality Relationships Education in primary schools will be focused on the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and adults. 


The Relationships Education curriculum will be based around these topics:

  • Families and people who care for me
  • Caring friendships
  • Respectful relationships
  • Online relationships
  • Being safe


If you’d like more information on what Relationships Education will include, please see pages 19 - 22 of the DfE document ‘Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Guidance’ (please note that Relationships and Sex Education is mandatory at secondary level only).
