Parent Consultation – Relationship & Health Education

Parents’ Consultation – begins Wednesday, 31st March 2021; ends Monday 26th April 2021

As a part of your child’s educational experience at Robert Shaw Primary and Nursery School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships, health and sex education following nationwide consultation, which were due to come into effect in September 2020. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and school closures they have now asked schools to be ready to teach some elements of Relationships Education from Summer Term 2021 and then from September 2021 onwards, Relationships and Health Education will be fully embedded in every primary school’s curriculum.

The full DfE guidance can be found at this web address:

The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.  Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.

At Robert Shaw, we are committed to delivering high quality PSHE and RHE (Relationships and Health Education) from Nursery all the way to Year 6.  To enable parents to be fully informed on what we are teaching, this page contains a number of useful documents.
