Relationship Education

The aim of our PSHE curriculum at RLA is to enable our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society, as well as developing the “whole child” intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually. Our PSHE curriculum is not only taught through class sessions but is also embedded through everything we do as a School.

Our PSHE curriculum supports our RLA inclusive ethos and culture which aims to enable all children, regardless of background, ability and additional needs to become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be.

In our PSHE sessions we follow the National Curriculum alongside the Sea View Trust progression document. We also use SCARF scheme of work to support planning and assessment. This directs our aim on developing the “whole child” through a spiral curriculum approach to developing knowledge, skills and understanding in the following areas:

  • Me and my relationships
  • Valuing difference
  • Keeping myself safe
  • Rights and responsibilities
  • Being my best
  • Growing and changing
In addition to this, we also teach Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), which is lifelong learning about relationships, emotions, looking after ourselves, different families, sex, sexuality and sexual health. We aim for the children in our school to acquire the appropriate knowledge, develop their skills and form positive beliefs, values and attitudes.
