Health and Relationships Curriculum (HRE)

Our goal is for our children to be prepared for the world they are growing up in: 

Tower Hamlets is a place where we celebrate our differences and see our diversity as strength.  Our borough is ‘No Place for Hate’ and we work to tackle all forms of hate and intolerance.  We want our schools to be places which champion this diversity and can make all children, and their families, feel welcome in the school community and within our borough (Guidance from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for all schools). 

What do we teach in Health and Relationships Lessons?

Our curriculum for Health and Relationships directly follows the statutory government expectations – see the link to the following document. 

DFE Statutory document - Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education

HRE lessons are taught once every 2 weeks for 45 minutes. 

The teachers teach carefully planned and resourced lessons that have been written, following the school policy and using the government guidelines.  Each term the lessons are taught covering the following six knowledge categories: 

Relationships and Sex Education 

The Non Statutory part of the curriculum, Sex Education  will be taught in Y6 only.  Sex Education is sexual reproduction in humans, reproductive cycle in humans and conception.  It is one lesson, not a series of lessons. 

Here is our Sex and Relationships policy.
