RSHE

Relationship, Sex and Health Education

At Christleton Primary School we aspire to teach pupils to live their lives well. RSHE in school develops the knowledge, understanding and skills young people need to manage their lives, now and in the future. 

At Christleton Primary School we see Relationship, sex and Health education (RSHE) as being at the centre of all that we do. RSHE education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. The promotion of pupils’ personal development (which includes their social development) is a fundamental aspect of education and underpins all other learning. Through our curriculum, our school environment and our school ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, at school, at work and in the community.

Our P.S.H.E curriculum enables children to explore who they are as a learner and as a person. As a result, children will possess an understanding of how they develop personally, socially and give them the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Children will learn strategies to help them manage feelings and emotions beyond our school gates. They will learn to understand their own emotions to equip them within daily life.

 

Intent

To build a P.S.H.E curriculum that enables children to explore who they are as a learner and as a person. As a result, children will possess an understanding of how they develop personally, socially and give them the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

Children will learn strategies to help them manage feelings and emotions beyond our school gates. They will learn to understand their own emotions to equip them within daily life.

To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the new PSHE three strands health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

We want our children to develop self-awareness, positive self-esteem and confidence, enabling them to:

  • Have a sense of purpose
  • Value self and others
  • Form healthy and positive relationships
  • Make and act on informed decisions
  • Communicate effectively
  • Work with others
  • Respond to challenge
  • Be an active partner in their own learning
  • Be active citizens within the local community
  • Explore issues related to living in a democratic society
  • Become healthy and fulfilled individuals

The teaching of PSHE at Christleton Primary School takes into account the needs of individual pupils and takes their cultures, faiths and family backgrounds into consideration.

Children will be given the opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.

We provide children with a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life.

 

Implementation

The school curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

These themes are covered through a range of subjects and programmes of study. We follow the Heartsmart programme. This helps to form part of the KS1 and KS2 connected Curriculum Map.  We also use ‘No Outsiders ‘programme to widen children’s understanding of the wider world and embedding the equality act.  Our termly learning powers allow children to focus on themselves as a learner. 

We also embed PSHE through other subjects such as science and geography.

We also develop PSHE and citizenship through activities and whole school events, for example Anti-Bullying Week, health week inc Sports Day, themed assemblies etc.

ELSA programme is used for children who need extra support socially and emotionally.

 

Our Scheme of Work

We deliver a comprehensive RSE (relationships and sex education) and Health scheme of work.

We have RSE lessons from EYFS up to year 6 and follow the Christopher Winter Project (CWP) resource ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’. This programme reflects the recent developments in RSE and the Science National Curriculum and has been quality assured by the PSHE Association.

Impact

Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with national and behaviour will be good.

Children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum.
