Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) and Relationships & Sex Education (RSE)


'Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.'

Mahatma Gandhi



Our school’s intention in Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSE) and Personal, Social , Health Education (PSHE) follows 1 decision scheme of work and covers the Relationships and Health Education statutory guidance (as set out by the Department for Education), including the non-statutory sex education. The scheme covers wider PSHE learning, in line with the requirement of the National curriculum (2014). Children’s learning through this scheme will contribute to their personal development  and will promote  the four fundamental British values which reflect life in modern Britain: democracy; rule of law; respect and tolerance and individual liberty.


At Warter CE School all pupils have a right to an education which enables them to flourish and is set in a learning community where differences of lifestyle and opinion (within that which is permissible under UK law) are treated with dignity and respect; where bullying of all kinds is eliminated; and where they are free to be themselves and fulfil their potential without fear.


Our school seeks to ensure that the RSE curriculum protects, informs and nurtures all pupils. It clearly differentiates between factual teaching (biology, medicine, the law, marriage, different types of families and the composition of society) and moral teaching about relationships and values, recognising that the distinction can be easily blurred and that there needs to be discernment about the manner in which this is taught. 


RSE in Warter CE School is about what constitutes wellbeing and loving care, how we show loving care for others (relationships education) at an appropriate age and stage in life, and how we show loving care to those we choose to be intimate with, including within marriage (sex education).  Our curriculum introduces and revisits ideas of personal boundaries, consent and communicating our boundaries with others. This prepares pupils for the challenges and responsibilities they will face in the future for ourselves (physical and mental health education).

Pupils will consider how to ensure that they treat themselves and others, at all times and in all contexts, with dignity and respect.

Promoting the Protected Characteristics at Warter

We work to ensure that our children understand that:

There are no outsiders at Warter

Everyone is different

We celebrate our differences

We are all equal in our differences

The Equality Act became law in 2010. It covers everyone in Britain and protects people from discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Everyone in Britain is protected. This is because the Equality Act protects people against discrimination because of the protected characteristics that we all have. Under the Equality Act, there are nine Protected Characteristics:

  1. Age
  2. Disability
  3. Gender reassignment
  4. Race
  5. Religion or belief
  6. Marriage or civil partnership
  7. Sex
  8. Sexual orientation
  9. Pregnancy and maternity

At Warter, we actively promote these in our curriculum and work to embed them into our ethos.

Under the Equality Act you are protected from discrimination:

  • When you are in the workplace
  • When you use public services like healthcare (for example, visiting your doctor or local hospital) or education (for example, at your school or college)
  • When you use businesses and other organisations that provide services and goods (like shops, restaurants, and cinemas)
  • When you use transport
  • When you join a club or association (for example, your local rugby club)
  • When you have contact with public bodies like your local council or government departments
