Striving to be the best we can!
PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which the Children at St Botolph's acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Along side PSHE we also take part in SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) sessions which allow children to talk confidently about feelings and issues in a safe environment. This is usually conducted as part of circle time.
PSHE co-ordinator: Miss Arthur
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
RSE is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development.
It is about the understanding of the importance of family life, stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care.
It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality, and sexual health.
It is not about the promotion of sexual orientation or sexual activity.
At St. Botolph’s we provide a graduated, age-appropriate programme of Relationship and Sex Education through the frameworks of Science and PSHE.
In any school that provides RSE, parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of RSE (excluding withdrawal from sex education in National Curriculum Science).
If you have any concerns or worries about any part of the programme in relation to your child, please contact the school and we will be more than happy to discuss these with you.
The safeguarding officers at St. Botolph's are Mrs Wilson (Head teacher), Mrs Bellaby (Deputy Head Teacher) and Mrs Brown.
