Personal Social Health Education/ Relationship and Sex Education

Intent

At Horton Kirby Church of England Primary School, our PSHE curriculum ensures children develop the knowledge and understanding of how to be healthy in mind and body. It develops learners who are emotionally resilient and have the skills to deal with changes and challenges in their lives. It aims to build children’s understanding of themselves and others in their immediate community and develop the skills to secure relationships with others. It gives children the opportunity to set themselves goals and aspirations and become confident members of a multicultural society.  

Implementation

PSHE deals with the diverse beliefs, values and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. They help pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, and their ability to communicate their feelings. PSHE helps children to acquire British values and attitudes that are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences within school and life itself, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.  PHSE is taught through appropriate curriculum links to other subjects such as English, RE and particularly Science – where health education is linked to learning about the human body.  

Our school uses the Maestro and Jigsaw Curriculums, as a tool to support the curriculum that has been adapted to our children’s needs.  It is reviewed and evaluated regularly to ensure provision is relevant, up-to-date and of the highest quality. SEND pupils will receive relevant provision. Regular, weekly circle times in each class enable children to confidently and safely discuss and work through their worries, varying issues and celebrate common humanity. Relationships and Sex Education is taught throughout the school, using the Jigsaw programme.

Impact
