Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHE) and

Relationships & Sex Education (RSE)


The Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (England) Regulations 2019, made under sections 34 and 35 of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, make Relationships Education compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education and Health Education compulsory in all schools except independent schools.

From September 2020, it is a compulsory requirement that all primary schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Health Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. 

At Bishop Martin we completed a consultation with parents in 2024 when introducing our PSHE Scheme (KAPOW), more specifically focussed on the Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) teaching content. The consultation process was collaborative and supportive, involving parents, governors, the church, school staff and children.
