Relationship & Health Education

Carville Primary School believes that a strong Relationship and Health Education curriculum is important to help our pupils develop into well-rounded members of society, who can make a positive contribution to their community. Relationship and Health Education delivers the statutory aspects of Sex and Relationship Education and elements of a wider Personal, Social and Heath Education, including Fundamental British Values and safeguarding.

We define Relationships Education as, "the teaching of the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults." It focuses on relationships, friendships, family life, marriage, communication, safety, respect, trust and caring for others.


Some aspects of Relationship and Health Education are taught through other subjects and others are discrete lessons, e.g. learning about life cycles and reproduction are primarily addressed in the Science curriculum, however conception is taught separately and families have the right to withdraw their children from these lessons.
