RSHE Curriculum intent.

As individuals in our ever changing world our RSHE curriculum will promote strong moral values and help us to nurture our children to become caring, responsible and respectful citizens. Through our RSHE curriculum, our children will understand the importance of positive relationships and will know how to care for their mental and physical health and well-being. Most importantly our children will be informed to make good decisions throughout their lives and will be confident to speak up when they feel worried or unsafe.
