As part of our high-quality Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) scheme, we have always aimed to deliver accurate, relevant and age-appropriate information about the three concepts of PSHE and Citizenship, which are: Relationships, Health and Well-being and Living in the Wilder World. Within these three concepts, the learning can be segmented into sub-concepts (in the circles below).
The term ‘relationships’ covers all relationships we, as humans, have with others – family members, friends, the relationships children have in school with their peers and members of staff. In a broad sense, Relationship Education encompasses all interactions with others.
What will Relationships Education at Billingborough Primary School look like?
Relationship Education will form part of your children’s learning about the world around them and how they interact with others.

Celebrating diversity through Relationships Education
Teaching children about the wonderful differences among humans has always been considered an important in education. Just as we want to encourage children to celebrate many different talents, strengths, goals and dreams, we also aim to promote the celebration of diversity among cultures, religions and traditions. Celebrating diversity among family structures and relationships is exactly the same principle and is something we look at from a whole school approach.
An inclusive Relationship Education
To ensure children with lesbian, gay bisexual or transgender (LGBT+) family members, as well as those who may be beginning to, they themselves, question their own feelings and sense of self, feel represented in the school environment and curriculum, school will endeavour to use resources which feature a range of families and relationships. This encourages understanding, acceptance and respect of different relation ships from a young age.
