PSHE and RSE

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens.  The school uses the PSHE Association planning toolkit.  Milldene Primary School has achieved the Enhanced Healthy Schools Award.

RSE (Relationships and Sex Education)  New government guidance was published in 2019 to ensure that relationships education reflected children’s experiences of the world.  For example, the new guidance allows for discussion regarding what a healthy relationship/friendship is and helps children prepare for dealing with on-line communication.  The school follows The PSHE Association planning toolkit, which covers the ‘relationships’ element of RSE.  Additional sex education lessons occur in Years 2, 5 and 6.  These are detailed in the school’s RSE policy and are summarised in the presentation document below.  Parents have the opportunity to withdraw their children from these additional lessons if they wish and these discussions are usually initiated upon receiving the letter notifying parents and carers that these lessons are coming up during the half term.  We welcome further discussions as we recognise that this subject needs to be taught sensitively.
