PSHE is a curriculum subject focusing on personal, social, health, and economic education.
Our approach to PSHE consists of a comprehensive and developmental programme of teaching and learning, which is delivered in the context of health and wellbeing of pupils and the whole school community.
Our programme has a positive influence on the ethos, learning and relationships throughout the school. It is central to our values and to achieving our school’s stated aims and objectives. We use the SCARF education scheme of work to support pupils to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives now and in the future. We teach PSHE, which includes Relationships and Health Education, from Nursery to Year 6. We will also teach Relationships Sex Education (RSE) in Year 5 and Year 6. We believe that teaching a quality PSHE curriculum enables pupils to feel happy and healthy.
The Department for Education (DfE) has made Relationship Education compulsory in all primary schools in England and Relationships Sex Education (RSE) compulsory in all secondary schools, as well as making Health Education compulsory in all state-funded schools. This is to help create a safe school community in which pupils can grow, learn and develop positive, healthy behaviour for life. We take our statutory responsibilities seriously and aim to provide relevant, effective, and responsible Relationships Education and RSE to all its pupils.
We recently updated our PSHE curriculum and Relationships Education and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Policy. We consulted with parents on this policy - your feedback was important to the process and part of the school's statutory duties.
The following documents will remain on this webpage for your reference:
