RSE Policy Statement
Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), and Health Education encourages pupils to make healthy decisions. This will cover the values and virtues related to establishing and maintaining positive relationships, and includes elements of Personal, Social, Health, and Economic(PSHE) education and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) education, and also includes links to fundamental British Values and the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child.
The Curriculum and the Equality Act 2010
At Castle Hill School, our aim is to provide a safe, secure, caring environment where everyone is valued and respected equally. We provide an inclusive education where children develop independent learning skills and are taught according to need, irrespective of their age, gender, background, beliefs, or abilities.
National legislation, the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 underpin all Curriculum policies, which also take into consideration national, local, and school policies on Special Educational Needs, Equal Opportunities and Health and Safety.
The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful to discriminate against someone on the grounds of any of these characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion/belief, sex (gender) and sexual orientation. These are often referred to as protected characteristics.
The PSHE Curriculum specifically develops pupils’ understanding of their physical, social, and emotional needs and develops their respect for others, of different ages, genders, backgrounds, beliefs, and abilities.
We have achieved the UNICEF Gold Award, through which we comply with Article 2 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which ensures that The Convention applies to every child without discrimination, irrespective of their ethnicity, sex, religion, language, abilities, or any other status, including what they think or say, and their family background.
