Pupils from a Nottingham  school took centre stage today, in a nationwide assembly which was broadcast live to hundreds of UK primary schools.

Children from Rosehill School in Nottingham had a starring role in RSE Day, a national event which celebrates good Relationships and Health Education. Organised by Nottingham City Council and Discovery Education,  a worldwide EdTech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place, the day-long livestream on 24th June was beamed to schools across the country and featured a host of special events and workshops.

Rosehill pupils took part in ‘The Big RSE Day Assembly’, where they spoke about the importance of good friendship. The children were excited to reveal their ‘friendship tree’, with leaves displaying their ideas about ‘what makes a good friend.’ The special tree was recreated online during RSE Day and schools around the UK were encouraged to get involved by adding friendship words of their own.

The children at Rosehill School have been learning about friendship this term using Discovery Education Health and Relationships, a digital programme which helps primary schools deliver the new RSE curriculum. The popular programme also teaches children about healthy bodies, different types of families and mental wellbeing.

Cheryl Steele, Headteacher at Rosehill School said,

“The children really enjoyed presenting the assembly for RSE Day. Good Relationships and Health Education helps young people to make responsible and well-informed decisions in their lives and for children with special needs this is especially important. We’ve recently started using Discovery Education Health and Relationships and it is enabling us to bring these difficult topics to life at Rosehill. It’s helping us to prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.”

Councillor Eunice Campbell-Clark, Portfolio Holder for Schools at Nottingham City Council, said:

“RSE Day is now an annual event celebrated by schools right across the country and I’m so proud that it started three years ago here in Nottingham. We know from our on-going work with headteachers how important this is for children and young people in terms of highlighting the need for safe and healthy relationships. The lessons in schools are all age-appropriate and pupils are taught by experienced staff who understand how to deliver these messages.  I’m delighted that we teamed up this year with Discovery Education Health and Relationships, which has kindly sponsored RSE Day 2021. It’s also fantastic that children from Nottingham’s Rosehill School took part in the national assembly.”

Discovery Education Health and Relationships is a complete digital PSHE programme which helps primary school teachers to meet the new statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education Curriculum. The programme is available to schools at no cost until October 2021.
