The Intent, Implementation and Impact statements for RSE  


What is Relationships education?  

 We want all children to grow up healthy, safe and able to manage the opportunities of Modern Britain. That is why, from September 2020 it is compulsory that all Primary age children will be taught Relationships and Health Education as part of the Curriculum. 



To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the three strands of Health and wellbeing,  Relationships and Living in the wider world.  

Relationships to include beginning of Sex Education as appropriate to our KS2 children. 

Our curriculum will enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. 

Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. 



At Woodrow we deliver the RSE curriculum by utilising first-hand experience and sharing good practice and it is every staff members responsibility to do this by being a role model and having high expectations of the Woodrow pupils. 

The school curriculum will focus on the three strands of Health and wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the wider world. 

All staff to be aware of the themes and issues being taught in the KS1/KS2 assemblies on Tuesdays and Wednesdays weekly and be able to provide opportunities to discuss, carry on learning and complete the supporting RSE activities back in class. 

(Copy of this terms assemblies and follow up learning at end) 

Children to have access to key knowledge, language and meanings to understand RSE and to use across the wider curriculum and in each Mantle of learning as appropriate. 

Working class or individual journals (Big floor books or displays) can be used to record responses to and progress in RSE sessions.  

The journals/ big books could travel on with children to the next year group so they can look back on their learning and reflect. 

Termly activities / projects to create a RSE project will give a whole school feel, while providing evidence and fun. E.g. RSE day. 



Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with National and behaviour will be good. 

Children will demonstrate a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life. 

Children will develop values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing community. 

RSE will be an integral part of school assemblies and classroom learning, where children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity will be stimulated, challenged and nurtured. 

Two assemblies led by Emma Taylor to be added one per half term
