Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), along with Health Education, now forms part of the National Curriculum. As part of our school’s wider Personal, Social and Health Education programme, pupils receive lessons on relationships, sexual health and personal safety.
The Government has broken Relationships Education into a series of units. By the end of their time in primary school, all pupils will have covered the following areas:
· Families and people who care for me
· Caring friendships
· Respectful relationships
· On-line relationships
· Being safe

Our RSHE curriculum at Beaumont is shaped by our wider vision which aims to enable all pupils, regardless of background, ability or additional needs to flourish and reach their potential in an increasingly complex world. Our aim is to provide our pupils with knowledge and understanding of safe and healthy relationships based on respect and to thrive in modern Britain.
Our curriculum covers the Government’s objectives as part of our wider PSHE curriculum and is enhanced by other curriculum subjects such as Science, DT (food and health technology), Computing (on-line safety), P.E. and R.E. We use the Croydon Relationship, Health and Sex Education resource pack in conjunction with lessons from Focus Education, Better Health – Every Mind Matters (Public Health England), Change for Life, Oral Health Foundation and the NSPCC.
Should we wish discuss the teaching and learning of RSHE and Beaumont Primary School please make an appointment to speak with Mrs Donohue, the RSHE coordinator, via the school office.
