What is PSHE?

PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health Education.


What is RSHE?

RSHE is part of PSHE. It stands for Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education.


How do we teach RSHE at Lambs Lane Primary School?

Lambs Lane uses the Jigsaw scheme of work to teach RSHE. Additional resources, such as products for menstruation, are included in lessons where appropriate.


Why are pupils in KS1 taught the proper terms for their private body parts?

This is a safeguarding decision based on research and government advice.


What happens if a pupil asks a question about something that wasn’t covered in the lesson?

All questions are answered to an age-appropriate level. If a question would be inappropriate to answer (for example, because of its mature or explicit nature), the child who asked will be encouraged to ask their parents or carers at home.
Questions will not be answered to the child or class if the content is not part of that year group’s program of learning.
