The Curriculum: P.S.H.E.

Our children will be taught to be Ready, Respectful and Safe.  We intend to teach the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults.  We will recognise that positive relationships also apply online. When teaching relationships content, we will address online safety and appropriate behaviour in a way that is relevant to pupils’ lives.  Children will be taught about the benefits of rationing time spent online and the risks of excessive use of electronic devices.   Our focus will be on teaching the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing. Our teachers will have a clear understanding that mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health.  We will actively promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Through our School Parliament, our children will take on responsibilities around the school and share their voice to create change within the school community. 

Relationships and Sex Education is taught every year in the context of a broad and balanced PSHE curriculum.  Core knowledge is broken down into units of manageable size, in a carefully sequenced way, within a planned programme.  This is delivered through high quality, age appropriate teaching in order to prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

PSHE Implementation

In order to ensure the highest standards of teaching and learning in PSHE, our teachers draw on a range of high quality, evidence based schemes of work.

All aspects of PSHE are carefully sequenced to equip children with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and understanding to make safe and informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships.

I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside
