Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE) at Frant

At Frant CE Primary School, we endeavour to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their full potential as individuals, and within their community. We believe that primary education should never be solely about academic achievement and that children need to be developed, in a range of ways, so that they become happy, healthy and accomplished individuals throughout childhood, adolescence and into adulthood. Our approach to the teaching of RSHE is not simply based on discrete teaching, using the JIGSAW scheme. It underpins our whole curriculum and is therefore a focus on a daily basis. 

‘Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old, they will not depart from it.’

Prov.  22:6

The JIGSAW Curriculum

The JIGSAW scheme supports the development of the skills, attitudes, values and behaviour, which enable pupils to:

  • Have a sense of purpose
  • Value self and others
  • Form relationships
  • Make and act on informed decisions
  • Communicate effectively
  • Work with others
  • Respond to challenge
  • Be an active partner in their own learning
  • Be active citizens within the local community
  • Explore issues related to living in a democratic society
  • Become healthy and fulfilled individuals

Our aims as a school...

  • To teach the fundamental characteristics of positive relationships between friends, family, children and adults. 
  • To model and teach respect and tolerance for the diverse world in which we live and that our differences can be celebrated as what makes us unique and special. 
  • To teach the value of personal boundaries and respecting the boundaries of others.  
  • That the principles of positive relationships also apply online and the importance of staying safe online.
  • To develop a child's positive personal attributes through the teaching of RSHE; our wider school ethos and the celebration of our school values including generosity, compassion, courage, forgiveness, friendship, respect, thankfulness, trust,        perseverance, justice, truthfulness and service and community. 
  • To develop within each child a clear understanding of mental health; how to support their own and the mental health of others. 

"Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.

This is why we have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools in England "
