PSHE centres on helping children understand about relationships, their own feelings and issues relating to growing up e.g. friendships, bullying, personal changes. The work is often linked to our Statements to Live By and includes Teaching British Values. It is often taught as part of circle time where the children have an opportunity to talk about issues.
Education in Relationships
Although Sex and Relationship Education is only statutory for Secondary schools, we introduce the teaching of personal relationships through Religious Education, because it is concerned with the person as a whole. Through Science, RE and PSHE, we aim to make the children aware of the changes which take place both emotionally and physically as they mature. We aim to do this in a caring and supportive atmosphere, linking this knowledge to an understanding of God’s plan for our growth and personal relationship with Him.
