This page contains an overview of the Rye College RSHE curriculum including the topics taught in each year group. 

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.

This is why the government has made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools and Relationships and Sex Education compulsory in all secondary schools. In addition, Health Education is compulsory in all state-funded schools.

The RSHE lead is Mrs Starkey.

More detail about RSHE can be found in our 'Relationships, Sex and Health Education' policy document below. This document contains details of which lessons students can be withdrawn from.
