New relationships, sexual health and parenthood website
Online teaching resource launched.
A new teaching website that strengthens the quality, consistency and relevance of education on relationships, sexual health and parenthood has been launched.
The Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RHSP) site - https://rshp.scot/ - contains over 100 lesson plans for use in all education settings.
Around 1,500 teaching professionals and parents contributed to the development of the resource, which was also piloted in 38 schools.
It aims to give teachers greater confidence in having valuable and engaging age-appropriate conversations with their pupils.
Topics include healthy relationships, consent, sexual health, reproduction, emotional well-being, equalities, gender and parenthood.
Deputy First Minister John Swinney yesterday said:
“We want every child to have a happy and healthy life and have confidence in building positive relationships and making well-informed choices as they move into adulthood.
“The new RSHP resource gives teachers the most up-to-date, authoritative material, from emotional well-being to sexual health to parenthood. This will allow them to choose the most relevant and engaging content for their pupils at their stage of development.”
