CVE Scotland’s RSHP resources available

Christian Values in Education Scotland has released Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RSHP) resources which are now available to download. CVE Scotland is in partnership with the Free Church of Scotland.

In May 2022, the Free Church of Scotland’s General Assembly endorsed a partnership with Christian Values in Education Scotland (CVE) and the associated project plan for delivering suitable alternative resources based on a Christian worldview.

CVE Scotland has now released Relationships, Sexual Health and Parenthood (RSHP) resources for Third/Fourth Level and Senior Phase.

The organisation says: “These have been created specifically to meet the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence’s Experiences and Outcomes for RSHP and have been developed over the past 18 months as the major part of CVE Scotland’s RSHP Project. Although written predominantly with schools in mind, these resources will have use in the youth group and home, where learning and discussions around RSHP topics are taking place. CVE Scotland’s First and Second Level resources will be made available soon.”

“These free resources include activity plans which are intended to be used alongside the RSHP.Scot resources to help facilitators consider how to ensure the language, resources and activities used in their RSHP lessons are objective, and inclusive of pupils who have religious beliefs, and to alert them to potential parental concerns. Alternative resources, such as videos, images and PowerPoint slides are sometimes suggested to replace content that promotes particular ideological beliefs as factual, or that may be inappropriate in the classroom.”
