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.
Relationship and Sex Education
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is part of our PSHE program. We use the SCARF scheme of work to deliver the key areas of RSE. We have reviewed our policies and published some documents to help understand what we will be teaching.
Books to support parents at home
Following our consultation meeting a survey was circulated and there were no comments on the policy or subject matter.
As a faith school we have consulted with the Diocese and have used their guidance to support our teaching of RSE.
Here are some of the documents we refer to:-
