Relationships, Sex & Health Education

One Life

Ossett Southdale,  considers that Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (RSHE) is an integral part of the Personal, Social, Citizenship, Health and Economic (PSCHE) Education curriculum.

We aim to offer pupils a carefully planned programme on human development, relationships and family life within a safe, comfortable atmosphere and in a relaxed relationship between teacher and pupil. The programme is set within a moral framework and matched to the pupils’ level of maturity. These aims complement those of the science curriculum in KS2.

RSHE istaught through our One Life programme following a deliberately planned and carefully sequenced curriculum which goes above and beyond the Department for Education’s statutory guidance.

Through One Life, RSHE content is broken down into 3 strands: Mental Fitness; Physical Fitness and Social Fitness. We are passionate in our belief that, for our children to grow into happy, healthy and well-rounded young people and adults, we must teach them, explicitly, how to develop mentally, physically and socially.
