We aim to promote wellbeing and development giving our young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to become happy and well-rounded individuals. We aim for all children to know how to deal with the challenges of the modern world, be informed about how to keep themselves safe and healthy and have good relationships with others.  

The aim of the RSHE 2021 curriculum is to ensure our young people have the information they need to help them develop these healthy, nurturing relationships of all kinds, not just intimate relationships. 

Relationships Education and Sex Education is compulsory in all secondary schools.
