The PSHE curriculum provides learning opportunities and experiences which enable pupils to:
- Develop knowledge and understanding of their own and different beliefs.
- Understand their personal rights and social responsibilities.
- Develop enduring values, integrity and autonomy in developing respect for their environments and their communities.
- Enhance their self esteem and emotional development.
- Form and maintain satisfying relationships.
The Sex and Relationships Programme is mainly taught as part of the PSHE curriculum by the class teacher. However some elements are included and taught through other subjects, for example Science. Puberty is taught in Year 5 and 6 although sex and relationships is delivered as part of a spiral curriculum throughout the school.
Parents have the right to withdraw their child from the non-biological aspects of sex education. However they are not able to withdraw their children from those aspects of sex education that occur as part of the National Curriculum for Science.
SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning)
Through SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) we aim to ensure that all children experience carefully planned activities to help them develop their social, emotional and behaviour skills in order for them to succeed.
Our Themed Week week enables the whole school to adopt different approaches and involve a range and variety of outside agencies to deliver the creative aspects of the curriculum in an exciting way.
