Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex and Education (RSE)

Here at Exeter a Learning Community we always aim to promote our children’s wellbeing and life skills and ensure that we give them the knowledge they need to be safe, and lead successful, healthy lives.  Our commitment is to teach a comprehensive PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) curriculum across all year groups.

In September 2020 the Department for Education made the teaching of Relationships, Sex Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools.  At a primary level the focus will mainly be relationships and health, introducing sex education in Years 5 and 6.  We will be implementing a new PSHE curriculum across the school that will teach this content in an age appropriate way.

The Government guidance can be found here:

To help parents and carers understand what this will look like, we have created a presentation which explains the changes that are being made, the curriculum content and your rights as a parent or carer.  This can be viewed by clicking here.

You can also access our medium term planning documents for each year group by clicking on the links below:

Parent Consultation

The new guidance from the DfE states that we must share the curriculum and policy with you.  We ask that you view our presentation, curriculum and policy documents.

What if I have questions or comments?

If you have any questions or comments about the new policy and curriculum please get in touch with us via the email address below by 22nd June 2021pshe@exeteralc.com

We welcome your views on the content of the policy, including:

  • Any suggestions you may have for things that are relevant for your children to learn
  • Would you like support at home, on how to speak to your child about relationships, health and sex education?
  • Any comments or questions about the policy and curriculum content.

It is our aim to have a policy and curriculum that reflects the needs and interests of our whole community.
