Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)


It is our intention that when children leave Thorpe Acre Junior School, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society while being equipped with the skills and strategies to lead healthy, safe and responsible lives. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these. We want our children to be aspirational and have self-belief. We place a strong emphasis on building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health through the delivery of an engaging and relevant PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Education) within a whole school approach.


We aim to continue to build a PSHE curriculum that incorporates the understanding of RSE (Relationships, Sex Education) so that children know more, remember more and understand more. As a result, children will know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.


Through our RSE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum, we aim to enable pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives in a safe environment.


The PSHE and RSE policy can be found within the curriculum information page.
