Relationships, Sex and Health Education
Queen’s Hills’ Vision for Relationships, Sex and Health Education is that children are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to make and maintain positive relationships that foster a passion for learning in school and into their futures. At Queens Hill we recognise the pivotal role that relationships have in learning and interacting with the world around us. We intend for every child to leave Queens Hill as tolerant, understanding and self-aware people who are ready to contribute to society.
At Queens Hill we prioritise children’s safety and RSHE at QHPS equips children, at an age appropriate level, with the language and strategies to recognise and report abuse. At Queen’s Hill, we aim to ensure that every child has a holistic understanding of health, and is informed and able to maintain their health, including their mental wellbeing. At Queens Hill, RSHE is an open conversation, with clear boundaries where children problem solve and re-enact scenarios. We intend to ensure that all children have the vocabulary available to them to identify their feelings and emotions and know where to get support when necessary. But most importantly, children understand that it is natural to feel a range of different emotions on any given day. At Queens Hill, RSHE promotes inclusion and teaches children about diversity in the compositions of families, gender, race and disabilities.
In essence, the aim for RSHE at Queens Hill is that children leave the school with the knowledge and skills to maintain their health, positive relationships and safety.
We use RSHE teaching resources created for Norfolk County Council alongside Educator Solutions to support our deliver of this subject area.
