PSHE / RSHE

PSHE

 

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) is woven into the fabric of our curriculum and school life. Individual lessons are taught weekly and themes are reinforced throughout each term in whole school assemblies, celebrations and class circle time.  In lessons, key vocabulary and real life examples are used to encourage discussion and problem solving. Teachers model the skills of emotional literacy and demonstrate principled, open-minded views. Effective questioning by teachers continually supports the development of opinions and self-esteem, in a safe and supportive environment.

By the end of each key stage, students are active learners who express themselves and accept difference in their community and the wider world.  Celebration of difference as well as personal achievements, promotes a culture of equality in our school.  Children have improved emotional awareness, tolerance and can identify what makes a healthy relationship. Promoting citizenship through PSHE enables children to make a positive contribution by developing the knowledge and experience needed to claim their rights and understand their responsibilities. It prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of adult and working life.

In July 2019, The Department for Education released a document changing the previous Sex and Relationship (SRE) guidance to the new Relationships, Sex and Health guidance (RSHE).

Relationships, Sex and Health Education is lifelong learning about physical, sexual, moral and emotional development. It is about the understanding of the importance of stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care for family life. It involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes.

By law primary schools are required to teach relationships and health education, alongside National Curriculum Science and within the context of Safeguarding.

Consultation

At Monega Primary School we acknowledge that parents/carers are a child’s first and most effective teacher and that is why we believe it is essential that our parents are part of the planning process and are fully informed.

We are now eager to consult with you regarding your views on when and how certain content is covered.  

As a result, we invite you to:

 

As highlighted above Schools are legally required to teach the content of the National Curriculum and as a result, what is taught is ultimately the decision for the School. The right to withdraw children from lessons is explained in the policy.

If you have any queries regarding the consultation process, please do not hesitate to contact the School.
