Through the teaching of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) our children enhance their existing knowledge, skills and understanding and develop this further to be able to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. The curriculum looks at many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up in the modern world.
It is here that your child will learn about bullying, citizenship, drug education, healthy eating, physical activity, mental and emotional health, wellbeing, managing change, and sex and relationships.
Learning opportunities take place in specific lessons as well as in assemblies, circle times, and whole school events such as Safer Internet Day and Anti-Bullying week and other activities that enrich pupils' experiences.
From September 2020, most of the PSHE curriculum will become statutory and therefore must be taught in school. This includes Health Education, Relationships Education and much of the Citizenship strands of PSHE. As part of this requirement, we will provide Health, Relationships and Sex education for all children as soon as they start school following the Cambridgeshire Personal Development Programme. More information on this programme can be found at the bottom of this page.
Throughout the academic year 2020/2021, we will be consulting with parents, carers and children on the statutory requirements to ensure all stakeholders are given opportunity to have their say on the school's policy for Relationships and Sex Education. More information will follow on how you can get involved in this process.
