PSHE and RSE
Personal Social Health Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships Education (RSE)
A happy child is a successful child. Through our PSHE and Relationships Curriculum we aim to give the children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, happy, healthy and independent lives. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. This is all provided in a culture of acceptance and understanding, giving all pupils an opportunity to be heard, to question and to be themselves.
In Key Stage 1, our PSHE and Relationships lessons are taught following the PSHE Association Programme of Study -
The lessons cover the core themes of:
· Health and Well Being
· Living in the Wider World
Within these topics the children are prepared for real life situations with study on money matters, respecting rights, safety, their body and growing up.
We also help the children understand and regulate their emotions through the use of the Zones of Regulation.
On top of weekly lessons, the essentials of PSHE are woven naturally throughout the week in class discussions, lunch and break times and values assemblies. Explicit links to other areas of the curriculum are made, especially PE, Science and RE. Special days and events also give opportunities for values in action and personal development.
Measuring impact of PSHE and Relationships Education is achieved through a combination of class work, observations and analysis of the behaviours of our children. We hope that by the time our pupils leave our school they will:
· Recognise and show in action the school values.
· Respect themselves and others and be developing positive, healthy relationships with their peers.
· Be able to manage their own emotions.
· Show they can appreciate difference and diversity.
· Know ways to look after their mental health and well-being
· Be able to approach a range of real life situations and apply skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.
· Have positive self-esteem.
· Be on their way to becoming healthy, open-minded, respectful, responsible and active members of society
