‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’

Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)

Relationship, Sex and Health Education at Homerswood Primary School enables pupils to learn about personal, social, moral and emotional development. It equips children and young people with the information, skills and values they need to have safe, respectful and enjoyable relationships and encourages mutually respectful relationships and empathy for others. It empowers them to take responsibility for their physical and mental wellbeing.


Our intent for the RSHE curriculum is for our pupils to grow up healthy, happy, safe and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. RSHE at Homerswood is a whole school approach and is inclusive of all pupils. Our curriculum aims to respond to the diversity of children’s cultures, faiths and family backgrounds. We have a commitment to ensure that our curriculum is relevant to all pupils and is taught in a way that is age appropriate.


At Homerswood School we follow a mindful and sequential RSHE scheme of work called Jigsaw, which is compliant with the statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education for September 2020. It is structured into 6 half-termly puzzles (units), with the whole school studying different aspects of the unit at the same time.


The units are:

  • Being Me in My World
  • Celebrating Difference
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me

Autumn 2021

This half term, across the school, we will be covering the Being Me in My World unit. During RSHE lessons, children will think about being part of a class, their rights and responsibilities and understanding their feelings. After half term, we will cover the Celebrating Difference unit which includes celebrating similarities and differences, bullying and enjoying and respecting other cultures. 

Year 5 completed a group activity where they had to make the tallest tower with only 10 sheets of paper and some tape. They then reflected on which role they had in their team and how they might tackle the challenge differently if they did it again.

Being Me in My World - Nursery and Reception have been making new friends and learning how to be a good and kind friend.

Healthy Me - Nursery and Reception have been learning how to look after their teeth and keep them healthy.

Relationships - Year 4 were thinking about special people in their lives, why they are special and how they can express this to them.

Dreams and Goals - Year 5 have been learning about different jobs and careers and what salaries they earn. They then discussed what their dream job would be and how they can achieve this.

Votes for Schools assemblies supports RSHE - each week topics are discussed that affect the children and through activities and discussion, they can express their views and opinions.
