At Reading School we believe in the value of PSHE and RSE. We help to prepare our students to be safe, healthy and prepare for life’s opportunities. This includes the statutory requirements of Relationships and Sex Education.  Relationships and sex education (RSE) and health education - GOV.UK (

For the RSE policy, please see the policies section of the website.

Student Focussed

Lessons are a safe space to ensure student feel supported to express and explore opinions. Students at Reading School have high levels of respect for each other and are encouraged to promote a respectful learning environment underpinned by five shared expectations

  1. Right to pass
  2. Respect for the right to an opinion
  3. Opportunity for everyone to get involved
  4. Confidentiality (if appropriate and not against safeguarding expectations)
  5. Kindness

Reading school students are supportive of one another’s wellbeing and demonstrate high levels of self-control. PSHE education helps our pupils to know how they can support each other, manage their own behaviour and get help for themselves or their friends when they need it.

Staff engagement

Our staff ensure best practice, up-to-date subject knowledge and fully engage in training opportunities, alongside prioritising our provision of PSHE in the curriculum.
