Relationships & Sex Education
As part of every pupils' education at Trinity, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
The topics that pupils engage with include relationship and sex education (RSE) and health education (HE) topics, both of which have been statutory since September 2020.
As outlined below, PSHE education is taught in Key Stage 3 and 4 (once a fortnight, except in Y11 when it is delivered in a drop-down day), and it is monitored and reviewed regularly by the PSHE Lead and governing body. All PSHE teaching takes place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values. The curriculum is delivered using a spiral curriculum which helps pupils to build on prior learning, revisiting themes, whilst increasing challenge, broadening their scope of issues and deepening pupils’ thinking.
As a school community, we are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers. If you would like to find out more or discuss any matters about the PSHE curriculum, including RSE and HE, please contact the PSHE lead using the following email: pshe@trinity,bexley.sch.uk.
