Relationship and Health Education (RHE)

Relationships and Health Education - RHE


At Holy Trinity & St. John’s  CoE Primary School, our RHE curriculum intends to prepare children for adult life, enabling our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We want our children to understand how they are developing personally and socially and we aim to provide the children with the opportunity to explore their rights and responsibilities and to learn how to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are all part of growing up. Children are given the opportunity to take responsibility and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.

Every child is encouraged to develop their self-worth, self-esteem and adopt a positive growth mind-set enabling children to develop a healthy mind. This is promoted in all subjects across our curriculum encouraging the children to take on an ‘I can’ attitude, positively preparing them for future life challenges.     



By the end of KS2 all children should :-

  • Develop an understanding of how to build respectful relationships with others and how to keep themselves safe and healthy as they grow.
  • Learn about their own self-worth and build a positive self-esteem and the impact this has on their lives.
  • Have an understanding and knowledge of their rights and responsibilities within society and our lives today.
  • Have knowledge, skills and understanding of developing into respectful members of society.
  • Have made appropriate and relevant links with other subjects of the curriculum.
