Relationships, (Sex) and Health Education (R.S.H.E)

Statutory requirements

From September 2020 Relationships (Sex) and Health Education is compulsory in all infant, junior and primary schools

At Northway Infant School we teach RSHE as set out in this policy.


The aims of Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE) at our school are to:

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place
  • Give pupils understanding of the importance of health and hygiene
  • Help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships
  • Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies.

RSHE aims to equip children and young people with the: information, skills and values

Which they will need to lead: safe, fulfilling, enjoyable relationships

And which will help them go on to: take responsibility for their sexual health and wellbeing.


As part of implementing the RSHE curriculum at Northway Infant School we asked parents to participate in a Parent Voice Questionnaire about the RSHE policy and curriculum.

Please see below the previous analysis of parent consultation questionnaire.
