P.S.H.E. (PERSONAL, SOCIAL AND HEALTH EDUCATION)
PSHE is an essential part of your child’s learning. It gives the children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. We use the DfE’s SEAL Scheme (Social and Emotional aspects of Learning) on a weekly basis, which focuses on learning to understand and respect diversity and differences. This scheme aims to enable children to form effective relationships with others and also gives the staff the flexibility to tackle issues as and when they arise in school.
Sex Education forms part of the Health Curriculum and Science Curriculum in school. Children in Year 5 are taught about how their bodies will change through puberty, through the Science Curriculum. In Year 6 children will continue this learning as well as learning the importance of being in a loving relationship. Parents will receive information regarding the framework prior to these units of work.
