Implementation - Relationships & Health Education


Enabling every child to thrive and succeed 


Relationships and Health Education


This subject is now statutory for children in primary schools.  Sex education is not compulsory, but primary schools are strongly encouraged to provide it.

We have agreed our RHE Policy and Scheme through an online survey for parents and governors; discussions with pupils; discussions with our feeder secondary schools; and a working party comprising parents, staff and governors.  You can find our RHE policy via the policies page.

Aims of RHE

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline.

At Arun Villages Federation, we want our RHE curriculum to put in place the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. This will sit alongside the essential understanding of how to be healthy.

We hope that by providing the pupils of our federation with a high-quality resource from Discovery education, they will feel readily equipped to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.
