From September 2020, all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education as part of their Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) curriculum. You can find further government guidance relating to this here
It has been created to help children have positive and safe relationships with anyone they might come into contact with including family, friends, and people online.
It will help children make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how and where to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
