What is RSE


RHSE is a hot topic right now in primary education, and you might be asking yourself – what is the meaning of RHSE?

RHSE stands for “relationships, health and sex education” and is a new approach to teaching children about relationships and health.

The Relationships Education, RSE, and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019 have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools. Sex education is not compulsory in primary schools.

All primary school children will be required to learn about relationships and health. Relationships and Health Education comprises two distinct areas:

  • Relationships
  • Physical health and mental wellbeing

Schools will have a lot of freedom to decide how to teach the new curriculum but must teach in a way that is:

  • Appropriate for children’s ages and development stage.
  • Sensitive to the needs and religious backgrounds of the children in the school.
