We believe that promoting the health and well-being of our pupils is an important part of their overall education and do this through our Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) lessons. This looks at many topics including all kinds of relationships, physical / emotional health and living in the wider world. The aim of the PSHE curriculum is to help our pupils make safe and informed decisions during their school years and beyond.
Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) is an important part of the PSHE course and becomes a statuary part of the National Curriculum in the form of Health and Relationships Education (HRE) from September 2020 - further details of which can be found on the Department for Education's website. SRE will be weaved into our PSHE education through our new scheme of work that has been approved for age appropriateness and quality of content by the PSHE association and will touch on the following topics:
Puberty, Relationships and communication skills, Reproductive cycles, Prevention of sexual abuse, FGM, Body image,
Sexting and social media, Consent,Types of family, Segregation and homophobia.
On this page, you will find information about what your child will be taught in PSHE and HRE lessons. If you have any further questions, pelase contact Mr Rimmer.
