Relationships and Growing Up Education (REGU)
We define Relationships and Growing up Education (REGU) as learning about caring friendships, families and people who care for me, respectful relationships, online relationships, being safe, growing up and puberty.
REGU provides an excellent forum to provide pupils with life-skills that will enable them to make informed decisions and protect themselves against harmful and exploitative situations. REGU is therefore a tool to safeguard children.
REGU contributes to the foundation of PSHE and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development and offers a valuable vehicle for promoting equality between individuals and groups. It involves an exploration of human and social diversity, and a fostering of self-worth whilst recognising, accepting and respecting differences.
Aspects of REGU are taught as an integral part of the school’s PSHE provision throughout the school. In this way, children are able to develop their ideas, knowledge and skills gradually and appropriately in a non-threatening environment.
