PSHE: Personal, Social, Health and Economics Education
PSHE will shortly be (from Sept 2020) a statutory subject in the National Curriculum. We have long seen PSHE as a vital area of learning to ensure our children develop positive relationships, healthy lifestyles and are able to look to the future with confidence. PSHE is closely linked with our learning skills: key skills that come into all aspects of learning. Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is also an important part of PSHE, and we have always thought it important for children to have a secure and appropriate knowledge and understanding in this area. See below for more details on all of these.
Consultation on RSE: June-July 2020
We are required to consult with parents regarding our proposals for teaching RSE. Our RSE policy can be found below, and our programme for teaching is lower down on this page. Both of these have been carefully considered and approved by a governor sub-committee, and we now need to consult with parents.
If you have any comments regarding our RSE policy or programme, please email the school by Friday 10th July. These comments will be considered by the governors before final approval is given.
We aim to start the teaching programme in September (although it is little different to the current programme)
