RHE / PSHE education is a school curriculum subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and prepared for life and work. When delivered well, PSHE education has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
The majority of PSHE education became compulsory in all schools in September 2020 with the introduction of statutory Relationships Education at key stages 1 and 2,

RHE and PSHE at St Augustine’s:
We believe that good relationships and health are the foundations and building blocks to learning. We believe that Christ is the centre of all that we do and so we teach RHE (Relationship and Health Education) through our scheme of work Ten Ten - Life to the Full. Through this, children from FS1 through to Year 6 learn about building and maintaining healthy relationships. We also believe that it is fundamental for children to learn to be active and caring members of society and we supplement our teaching with the scheme of work You, Me PSHE. (Personal, Social and Health Education) Through this children develop the skills of democracy and learn about money, careers and how each go hand in hand.
We deliver focus weeks in classes and assemblies throughout the year for key events such as Anti – Bullying week and Online Safety.
