We believe that PSHCE has the power to enhance the health and wellbeing of all children, their families and the whole school community. It has a positive influence on the ethos, learning and relationships throughout the school. It is central to our values and to achieving our school’s aims.
PSHCE helps children to develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes they need to live confident, healthy, independent lives, now and in the future, as individuals, citizens, workers and parents. It is embedded within wider learning to ensure that children learn to develop resilience and healthy relationship skills, which they will practise and see enacted in the school environment.
We follow the Cambridgeshire PSHE curriculum, including statutory Relationships and Sex education elements through weekly PSHE lessons. These cover:
Beginning and Belonging
Family and friends
Rights, Rules and Responsibilities
Identities and Diversity
Diversity and Communities
My Body and Growing Up
Keeping Safe (incl. Drug Education)
Sex and Relationships Education
We teach fundamental British Values, equality, diversity and community cohesion, alongside establishing behaviour and conditions for learning through weekly assemblies and the core school values, rights and responsibilities.
