RSHE at Theale Green School
RSHE (Relationship, Sex, Health Education) is a subject through which students develop their knowledge skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help students to stay safe, healthy and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. The intent of our RSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and ensure that each of our students will understand how to play a positive and successful role within our society.
Our aim is to:
- promote personal development so students become well-education and well-round young adults
- promote good behaviour and positive character traits e.g. stickability, self-regulation and empathy.
- support students’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development
- prepare and equip them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of live
- provide students with the knowledge of their world, locally, nationally and globally to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that they may face growing up
- provide opportunity to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society
- foster good mental wellbeing in students so they can fulfil their full potential at school and are well prepared for life.
RSHE is delivered across the whole school during dedicated lesson time, calendared activities/drop down days, tutor time as well as being embedded throughout the whole curriculum. Guest speakers regularly visit the school to bring the curriculum alive and connect students with the world outside the school/local community. Every week there is a ‘Thought for the Week’ and a tutor time session is spent discussing the thought and its link to the British Values. Assemblies also support and promote the key themes.
Our curriculum is aspirational for our students through the use of scaffolded tasks across three main strands:
|Living in the wider world|
|Health and Wellbeing|
The RSHE progressive curriculum allows students to revisit topics and themes several times throughout KS3, KS4 and KS5. The complexity or challenge of the topic and themes increases with each visit. Most of the learning has a relationship with old learning and is put in context with the old information/knowledge. This allows most of the information to be reinforced and solidified each time students revisit the subject matter or topic. The content is tailored to meet the needs of Theale Green students such as our personalised approach.
