Relationships and Sex Education

At Gable Hall School, our commitment to holistic education is reflected in our comprehensive approach to Relationships, Sex, and Health Education (RSHE), coupled with a broader curriculum encompassing Personal, Social, Health, and Economic Education (PSHE). Our conviction lies in the lasting impact these teachings will have on our students' lives, effectively preparing them for the complexities of adulthood.

Our focus on Relationships and Sex Education (RSHE) goes beyond merely advocating for or against sexual activity. Instead, our emphasis is on empowering students with pertinent, age-appropriate information, advice, and guidance, fostering their ability to make well-informed decisions regarding relationships – both in their youth and as they transition into adulthood.

At Gable Hall School, our curriculum is tailored to the dynamic world our students inhabit. We aim to empower them with a profound understanding of their bodies, a discerning grasp of relationship dynamics, and the confidence to engage in open discussions about relationships.

The Benefits of High-Quality RSHE at Gable Hall School:

  1. Promoting Healthy Relationships: Our meticulous RSE program actively mitigates the risk of unhealthy and abusive relationships, fostering a foundation of respect and empathy amongst students.

  2. Empowering Sexual Health: By imparting comprehensive knowledge, we equip students to make responsible decisions, thereby reducing the incidence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and promoting their overall sexual well-being.

  3. Addressing Teenage Pregnancy: We play a pivotal role in the borough-wide effort to curtail teenage pregnancy rates through comprehensive education that underscores the importance of informed choices.

  4. Inclusive and Safe Environment: Our commitment to inclusively ensures that every student – regardless of age, gender, race, disability, religious beliefs, sexuality, or gender identity – feels secure and valued within our school community.

  5. Fighting Discrimination: We actively combat all forms of discriminatory language and behaviours, fostering an environment that promotes tolerance, diversity, and understanding. This includes challenging instances of sexism, homophobia, racism, and other prejudices.

  6. Preventing Exploitation and Radicalisation: We contribute to local and national efforts to prevent child exploitation, radicalisation, and grooming by sensitising students to recognise the signs and symptoms of these threats, ultimately ensuring their safety.

Insensitivity and Accessibility:

Our commitment to delivering a high-quality RSE education extends to all students, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Our policy outlines a curriculum and delivery strategy that caters to the unique requirements of every student, fostering an environment where everyone can thrive.

Choosing Gable Hall School means choosing a transformative education that prepares students not just for exams, but for life's multifaceted challenges. Our RSHE curriculum stands as a testament to our dedication to nurturing informed, responsible, and empowered individuals.
