PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) & RSE (Relationship & Sex Education)
It is important for our children to have the knowledge and skills to make healthy, positive relationships and solve problems.
The components of our PHSE/RSE curriculum are:
Citizenship : society (democracy, community groups, diversity)
We aim to give all children a wide and strong understanding of these areas and how it impacts on the world around them and their place within it; the choices and decisions they make and what those choices and decisions are based on. Through enquiring the right knowledge & skills, they will be equipped and empowered to think about themselves and others and how it affects day to day life. This enables our pupils to make connections and base their own thoughts, responses and beliefs whilst widening their own horizons.
Our progressive curriculum ensures that all learning builds on prior knowledge & skills in order for our children to consolidate, develop further and make connections not only in explicit PSHE/RSE lessons but in their own decision making, how this impacts on the community where they live and the global implications.
Through opportunities to discuss, read, reflect and consider their place in the world, children can understand the ‘bigger picture’ and ask questions about it.
All of this is underpinned by our School Vision and Christian School Values.
Our PSHE scheme of work (1Decision) supports the active development of a school culture that prioritises physical and mental health and wellbeing, providing children with skills to evaluate and understand their own wellbeing needs, practise self-care and contribute positively to the wellbeing of those around them. It should ensure that individual children leave Claypole:
R-Time (Relationship Time) is a structured programme that builds and enhances relationships for children from Early Years to the end of Primary School. Each R time session lasts for an afternoon session once each half-term.
What are the intended outcomes?
Relationships and sexuality education encourages open and clear communication and builds age & developmentally appropriate knowledge. These lay the foundation for healthy and safe choices about relationships, sexual health and wellbeing.
