PSHE and RSE
The PSHE Curriculum
- For children to gain the knowledge and skills required to stay healthy, happy and safe, and thrive in their futures (both on and offline).
- To develop pupils’ confidence, resilience, and self-esteem, and their ability to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions.
- To support children developing the essential skills for future employability and achieving economic wellbeing
- Support children in developing the capacity to be active and effective global citizens now and in their future
- To provide a safe and happy learning environment where children can express themselves freely
- For pupils to be encouraged to talk openly about their mental health and access support as and when required
- To deliver an age appropriate and progressive RSE curriculum rooted in our Catholic faith that meets the needs of all pupils
- Through the Virtue Education, we will enable our pupils to develop their core values, to develop empathy and to recognise and respect cultural differences. These skills and values will help our pupils to connect with those around them.
- We follow the You, Me, PSHE scheme of work - a clear, comprehensive and progressive curriculum working in line with the National Curriculum which includes opportunities to links to British Values and Spiritual Moral Social Cultural development.
- PSHE topics will be taught as weekly discrete sessions over a period of a half term.
- Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies and RE lessons make links to PSHE, British Values, Rights and SMSC.
- All lessons begin with sharing of Ground Rules for PSHE – these rules are consistent in all year groups.
- Revised RSE curriculum Ten Ten – Life to the Full (approved by parents and governors) has begun to be delivered in school.
British Values will be embedded in PSHE lessons, to ensure that children understand the ethos behind it. Pupil’s will be taught about what culture means and to share and discuss their own culture. They will be taught about diversity and this will be promoted further through PSHE lessons. School will celebrate various weeks such as Diversity week and Black History Month.
