What is PSHE
PSHE (personal, social, health and economic) education is a school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. PSHE education helps pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepared for life – and work – in modern Britain.
What is RSE
RSE is the statutory curriculum for relationships education, relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education. At Ringshall we teach it within the PSHE subject using the Kapow scheme of work to support teacher planning.

RSE: Relationships and Sex Education
RSE has been compulsory in schools from September 2020. Please click on the link for some information from the government about this compulsory framework: government guide for parents
Aims of our RSE curriculum
We believe that our RSE approach helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives, in order to become informed, active and responsible citizens. The work we do in this area is taught explicitly and it lies within our PSHE curriculum. It also flows through all other curriculum areas and is regularly an area for learning as children negotiate their way through school - in their relationships with others, their tolerance and understanding of differences, their developing awareness of themselves and how they fit into a wider local and global community.
Ringshall RSE policy is in our policies section.
