Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RSHP) is part of the Health and Wellbeing curriculum for all nursery and school aged children across Scotland. We teach children about this because:
- children are naturally curious and are already learning about these topics every day.
- learning about RSHP can help children to prepare for things like body changes, developing healthy relationships and keeping themselves safe.
- children can easily access incorrect and sometimes harmful information online (e.g. YouTube, social media, gaming) and from their peers.
- teachers are equipped with up to date accurate information and resources which can support children to question and balance any incorrect information.

In Gullane Primary we make use of a nationally developed resource, RSHP ( rshp.scot ) , that has been developed to support teaching and learning in this area. This resource is broken down into Early, First, Second, Third & Fourth and Senior Levels. Each level contains information for parents including material on learning at home and at school.
