PSHE

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE)

Intent

The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all. Our PSHE curriculum will incorporate the understanding of RSE so that children know more, remember more and understand more. As a result, children will know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives. Through the Christopher Winter RSE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum this will enable pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives.

At Kensington Primary school personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.

Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

 

Implementation

The Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHEE) curriculum has three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (economic wellbeing and being a responsible citizen).

At Kensington Primary School we make links to PSHEE through other curriculum subjects including English, Mathematics, Science, P4C, Computing (internet safety) and Religious Education. We also make links through whole school, key stage and class assemblies.

 

Clear and comprehensive RSE scheme of work within PSHE in line with the new recommendations of teaching RSE in National Curriculum (Feb 2019).

The teaching and learning of RSE is planned explicitly within each year group so that children know more, remember more and understand more.

 

RSE programme of work is explicitly resourced.

Children will become more aware of RSE and know the purpose of it.

 

Parent Consultation

Parents are informed of the content of the RSE programme of work during the class transition meetings, planned information sessions, and further support / clarification will be given if required.

 

We teach Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) using The Christopher Winter Project (CWP) Resources Teaching RSE with Confidence.

The teaching and learning of Relationships and Sex Education is planned explicitly within each year group so that children know more, remember more and understand more.

 

In Reception we focus on families and friendships. From Year 1 children will learn the names of the body parts, the differences between males and females and the ways in which they will develop and grow. Importantly, they will also learn to recognise unsafe and risky situations and to ask for help.

The curriculum continues to develop their knowledge and skills as they learn about the physical and emotional changes of puberty and about reproduction. In Year 6 we have added an extra lesson on internet safety and communication in relationships.

 

Impact

Children will know more and remember more about PSHE. Children will recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty. Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school. The large majority of children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum in addition to the core subjects.

 

Children will develop positive and healthy relationship with their peers both now and in the future. Children will understand the physical aspects involved in RSE at an age appropriate level. Children will have respect for themselves and others. Children will have positive body images.
