PSHE

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and Citizenship are important aspects of our curriculum and are taught both discretely and within our topics.

We want our children to live healthy, safe, productive, responsible and balanced lives and have the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to be able to manage their lives now and in the future.  We encourage our children to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.

We encourage our children to develop in confidence, resilience and self-esteem and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decision.

Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help our children to form and maintain good relationships and develop the essential skills for future employability.

PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

PSHE covers three strands – health & wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. 

PSHE also has strong links with our Science and Computing curriculum.

 

RSE

Relationships & Sex Education.

We want our children to grow up healthy, happy, safe and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain.

Our Relationships education will put in place the building blocks for positive and safe relationships, including family, friends and online.

Children will be taught about relationships, friendship, what family means and who can support them.  This will be done in age-appropriate way and children will learn how to treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect, and links to our PSHE curriculum.
