Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE)
At Rosehill School PSHE is a core area of the curriculum as it is involves learning about acquiring and developing necessary life skills (taught at a level appropriate to a child's needs and learning style). For pupils in the Early Years, Key Stage 1 - 2, the emphasis is upon developing skills though a cross-curricular approach in all areas of school life. This approach is also used in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, but pupils here will have increased access to discrete timetabled PSHE lessons, including Relationships & Sex Education (RSE), Citizenship and Drugs Education. PSHE encourages our pupils to develop individual independence skills at a level appropriate to their individual needs. This includes travel training and working with others.
Relationship & Sex Education (RSE)
At Rosehill School we understand the importance of educating pupils about relationships and sex, in order for pupils to make responsible and well-informed decisions in their lives. The DfE’s guidance, ‘Sex and Relationship Education Guidance’, defines this programme as: “Learning about physical, moral and emotional development; understanding the importance of marriage for family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality and health.” The programme will be taught objectively and does not intend to promote any form of sexual orientation. the overall aims of RSE include:
The aims will be achieved through developing an understanding of:
A range of values and moral issues including the importance of family life
The biological facts related to human growth and development, including reproduction
The importance of healthy relationships

What is 'All Together' and how do we take part?
An 'All Together School 'is one that has proven its activity to reduce bullying of all children. The All Together programme has been developed over the last three years and builds upon the work of the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s programme which saw significant positive results. Participating schools are supported on and offline to make whole school change to its anti-bullying practices, using a social model approach. The programme includes a special focus on reducing bullying of disabled children and those with SEN but aims to reduce bullying of all children and young people. It is funded by the Department for Education and delivered by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, with support from the Council for Disabled Children, Contact a Family and Achievement for All. Rosehill have signed up to the 'All Together bulletin', a monthly bulletin which will update our pupils and staff.
