PSHE including RSE

PSHE ( Personal, Social and Health Education) is a subject we teach in school which helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

All primary schools now have new statutory requirements relating to Relationship and Sex education (RSE) We have incorporated compulsory RSE elements into our PSHE curriculum.

PSHE helps pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepared for life and work in modern Britain

At Riverdale we develop skills and understanding under eight different topics which we revisit and build on each year.

The topics are :-

  • Relationships
  • My body and my health
  • Lifecycles
  • Feelings and attitudes
  • Mental Wellbeing
  • Keeping safe and looking after myself
  • People who help me
  • Living in our world

To help you know exactly what we teach our children in each year group, we have produced some leaflets that explains the content taught in each year group.
