RSHE at the Mount 

At the Mount we use 'Talking Points' to support delivery of the RSHE (relationships and health education) curriculum. 'Talking Points' is a Physical Health, Mental Wellbeing and Relationships Curriculum for Primary Schools, taking full account of the DfE Guidance for the new RSHE curriculum.

Our curriculum has been set out in such a way that promotes pupil talk. Each unit in each year group is linked to a quality text and uses children's picture books to start age appropriate discussions about topics covered. Children are encouraged to take part in discussions and activities. We also aim to encourage a love of reading and to increase vocabulary understanding.
