Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Relationships and Sex Education

Relationships, Health and Sex Education at Archbishop Cranmer C of E Primary Academy


Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RHSE), previously known as Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) will be a statutory subject from September 2020. This covers the following:

  • Relationships Education: building positive and healthy relationships with friends and family members, respect for others, online relationships, positive emotional and mental wellbeing and staying safe;

  • Sex Education: relationships and health, including puberty. This is not compulsory in primary school and parents have the right to withdraw their child/ren from these sessions.

  • Health Education: teaching the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing.

More information can be found in the policy, linked below.


As part of the new statutory requirements for teaching Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), we are required to consult with parents and carers as part of the development and review of our policy. Parent/ carer consultation took place in July 2020. Please find below copies of the updated and agreed policy, consultation report, statutory guidance and sample materials for which we will be implementing from September 2020 as part of our RSE curriculum. More information regarding our Relationships and Health strand of the curriculum can be found on our PSHE curriculum page or by visiting 


Many thanks to those parents and carers who took the time to respond to our parent consultation in July 2020, your feedback was greatly appreciated.


If you would like to discuss our RSE curriculum, please contact Mrs Hodgson (RHSE Lead) via the school office.
