Relationships and Growing up Education (RGE)

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning and provide an environment that will enable children at Starbank to lead happy, safe and fulfilling lives. We believe that the aims and objectives of our Relationships and Growing up Education supports this ethos.

At Starbank, Relationships and Growing up Education is a key aspect of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE).  We believe that RGE is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. Effective RGE helps children to understand themselves, respect others and sustain healthy relationships of all kinds including friendships.  It is about the understanding of the importance of stable, respectful, relationships and marriage for family life.   It involves teaching children about growing up and provides them with comprehensive, accurate information needed to make sensible, safe and informed choices. The Relationships and Growing up Education forms a foundation for further work in secondary schools, and the skills and attitudes developed will enable the pupils to lead healthy lives now and in the future. As with all other learning, it will be gradual and matched to the child’s maturity and stage of development.
