Personal Social Health Education Curriculum, Citizenship and Sex & Relationships Education (PSHE)

PSHE (Personal Social and Health Education) is a core area of the curriculum at Rosehill School as it is an important subject for all pupils. It allows them to acquire and develop necessary life skills at a level appropriate to their 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 Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) and 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.


Sex and Relationship Education at Rosehill aims to do the following:

  • Present information in a sensitive, balanced and objective manner
  • Allow students access to individual sex education and relationships as and when their physical, emotional and social development dictates
  • Promote and develop self esteem
  • Encourage the development of appropriate behaviour in relation to themselves and others (friends, family and community)
  • Empower pupils by teaching and supporting them how to make informed choices and decisions
  • Enable pupils to protect themselves
  • Give opportunity for discussion in a safe environment


Parents are notified of the content of the SRE lessons and they are able to request to speak to the teacher or PSHE SRE Lead about the content and the resources that are going to be used. Parents have a right to withdraw their son or daughter from all or part of the PSHE Sex and Relationships Education programme, but not the National Curriculum science aspects of reproduction.

Anti Bullying at Rosehill School

Rosehill School are taking part in an important Project called ‘All Together' 2017 – 2018 where our pupils and staff will learn more:

  • What do we really mean by bullying?

  • Bullying and the law

  • Preventing, reporting/recording and responding to bullying at a school.

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 previous SEND anti-bullying champion 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.

The programme is running from April 2017 to September 2018. 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 about all things All Together, SEN/disability news and anti-bullying news.

  • access to the All Together Online Platform through which schools are supported to create an anti-bullying action plan that is tailored to their needs

  • targeted resources to help tackle bullying

  • access to the 'All Together Pupil Wellbeing Questionnaire' which will tell you about levels of wellbeing and bullying among your pupils and allow you to monitor progress over the course of the programme. The results will report on a variety of indicators including SEN/disability and free school meals

  • online CPD-certified training for all staff, including a module on cyberbullying.

Becoming an All Together School means that Rosehill is committed to Anti Bullying and we are working hard to ensure we support this champaign locally and nationally.
