At St Meriadoc Junior School our aims of relationships, sex and health education (RSHE) are to:

  • Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place, supported by quality information and resources
  • Promote mental and physical health and equip our pupils with strategies to support their wellbeing
  • Prepare pupils for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene
  • Help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy
  • Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships
  • Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies
  • Link our RSHE teaching and learning to our Christian and school values
  • Acknowledge the impact we can have on others

"Let the wise hear and increase in learning…"
