RHSE (Relationship, Health and Sex Education)

At New Close we pride ourselves on delivering effective, age-appropriate relationships, health and sex education (RHSE) that meets the needs of all our pupils within an inclusive and supporting learning environment.  RHSE is taught through a spiral delivery that enables pupils to build upon their prior learning by revisiting some themes to further develop knowledge, values and skills in an age and stage appropriate manner. 
We use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work for Mindfulness PSHE to deliver content and make links across other areas of the curriculum.  We encourage our parents to discuss all aspects of the relationship, sex and health education with their child by communicating each terms' objectives.
Our policy has been developed with all stakeholders, including consultation with parents and has been incorporated to run alongside our PSHE policy.
