Understanding Relationships and Health Education 


All children should grow up healthy, happy, safe and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. That is why ALL primary age children are taught Relationships and Health Education. 


At Lever Edge Primary Academy, we value PSHE as one way to support children’s development as human beings, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice and to equip them for life and learning. We include the statutory Relationships and Health Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme.


These subjects are designed to equip your child with the knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships as well as preparing them for a successful adult life. 


Relationships Education

Relationships Education will put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online. Your child will be taught what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who can support them. In an age-appropriate way, we will cover how to treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect.


By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:

• families and people who care for me

• caring friendships

• respectful relationships

• online relationships

• being safe


Health Education

Health Education aims to give your child the information they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing, to recognise issues in themselves and others, and to seek support as early as possible when issues arise.


By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:

• mental wellbeing

• internet safety and harms

• physical health and fitness

• healthy eating

• facts and risks associated with drugs, alcohol and tobacco

• health and prevention

• basic first aid

• changing adolescent body
