RHSE and PHSE Curriculum at Holy Trinity

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RHSE) Subject Leader is Mrs Fargher


Our curriculum intent for PSHE and RHSE is that every child will: 

  • develop a sound understanding of healthy relationships
  • gain knowledge to keep themselves healthy,
  • gain knowledge to make safe and informed decisions
  • develop their personal attributes that will contribute to their success throughout their life
  • know how and when to ask for help and support


Implementation of the PSHE and RHSE Curriculum at Holy Trinity


Holy Trinity is committed to ensuring all children receive a comprehensive and age appropriate curriculum that offers opportunities for discussion and sharing. Recognising and celebrating differences is a key element to ensure our children are fully prepared for their life ahead. Teaching children about how to stay safe and healthy plays an important role in our curriculum.


The Curriculum is focused around 2 key areas:

Relationships Education:

  • Families and people who care for me

  • Caring friendships

  • Respectful Relationships

  • Online relationships

  • Being safe


Physical health and mental wellbeing:


  • Mental wellbeing
  • Internet safety and harms
  • Physical health and fitness
  • Healthy eating
  • Drugs, alcohol and tobacco
  • Health and prevention
  • Basic first aid
  • Changing adolescent body



In support of the above, children have access to a range of wider curriculum opportunities to support their learning.  This may include trips and visits, workshops, clubs, roles of responsibility and residential visits in the later years.  These all combine to enable pupils to develop positive relationships with others and grow as people, able to make appropriate decisions to keep themselves safe.


The Impact of the PSHE and RHSE Curriculum at Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity pupils have opportunities to develop life-long skills during their time with us. Through exposure to a range of issues around relationships, as well as physical and mental health, they are able to develop an understanding of how to look after themselves, communicate effectively with others and keep themselves safe. We strive to ensure that pupils leave Holy Trinity school being the best version of themselves.
