Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE)
Personal, Social and Health education (PSHE) is an important theme running through all areas of the curriculum, and while it is most likely to be discussed in PSHE lessons, we aim to visit themes of mental health and wellbeing, kindness, relationships, health education, safety (including online safety) and all aspects of living in a wider world in everything that we do. This includes while children are at play, in assemblies and circle times, and responding to current local, national and international issues.
PSHE Curriculum Documents
Through our curricular themes the subjects of birth, growth and change are approached as they arise in science, humanities, health education and religious education. Teaching takes place in a proper context with due regard to the child's stage of development. We aim to present facts in an objective, balanced and sensitive manner.
Parents will always be informed before children receive any formal sex education lessons (one lesson in Summer Term 2 of Year 5 & one lesson in Summer Term 2 of Year 6). Parents will be given the opportunity to preview all materials used. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from any formal sex education lessons that take place. Please see the school's Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Policy below, for further information regarding this.
