Relationships, Sexual Health & Parenthood Education for Schools

Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RSHP) 



The national resource for  RSHP provides a comprehensive set of learning activities for use in early learning settings, primary and secondary schools, colleges and in community-based learning. The resource is structured in line with Curriculum for Excellence Levels.

Children and young people do not just learn in formal settings, they also learn at home and so the RSHP resource makes that connection by recognising the role of parents and carers as the child’s first and lifelong educator. Many of the learning activities provided in the resource have information that can be shared with home, there are also book lists to be shared, and information leaflets that educators can use to communicate about RSHP learning at different Levels.

The resource can be used to support the delivery of RSHP lessons in mainstream and specialist settings and in non-denominational and denominational schools.
