Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Citizenship help to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. Children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of our school and local community. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning. We use a wide range of resources to ensure a broad and balanced PSHE and Citizenship curriculum. Children are encouraged to speak out and share their own thoughts and opinions within a safe and understanding environment.
Healthy Schools Bronze Award
We are very proud to announce that we have achieved the prestigious Healthy Schools Bronze Award, in recognition of all of the good work we do to ensure children receive high quality PSHE education, including high quality care and support and the range of opportunities we provide for the children.
Pupil Survey 2016
In the summer of 2016, we carried out a pupil survey in order to find out the attitudes and opinions of the children regarding their experiences at school. We looked at learning, behaviour, attitudes to learning, extra-curricular opportunities as well as many other areas. Here are some of the results:
Sex and Relationships Education (SRE):
Detailed in the document below are the key areas of learning for each year group for SRE (Sex and Relationships Education). We will continue to use our PSHE Scheme of work to form the basis of our teaching of this particular unit, supplementing lessons with materials that have been recommended by Wiltshire Diocese and Wiltshire’s PSHE co-ordinator. The scheme of work has been adapted to take into account our Christian values, with resources having been considered and chosen carefully according to the areas of learning that are being covered at each stage. SRE is an important part of a child’s learning, focusing on healthy and safe relationships, being responsible and understanding their bodies. A list of vocabulary being used will inform you as to what your child will be taught in each year group.
Please do get in touch with your child's teacher if you have any queries.
