PSHE

Vision for PSHE and RSE
 
For all students to develop an understanding of the ever changing world in which we live, develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively.
 
 
The teaching of Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members within their society. Our teaching 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.
 
What's new?
This year the health and relationships aspects of PSHE teaching will be made compulsory for all children from September 2020.  This means that mental health and wellbeing, physical health (including healthy lifestyles and first aid) and learning about safe, healthy relationships, including understanding consent and negotiating life online will all be taught throughout schools, with topics and subjects taught appropriately to key stages and year groups. 
 
As a school, we have become members of the PSHE association, who are the national association for PSHE education professionals.  They provide schools with dedicated support, resources, training & guidance.
We will also be following s new, comprehensive scheme of work called SCARF, which is based on the following 5 principles - Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship.
 
Subject priorities
1)  High quality teaching and learning - 
To ensure that children receive high quality PSHE and RSE education each week which is embedded into the curriculum and delivered using quality materials and resources. 
 
2)  Staff training -   
To ensure that staff are appropriately trained to deliver certain aspects of PSHE, RSE and use the new PSHE scheme for teaching and assessment.
