PSHE and RSE

PSHE

Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum will equip all pupils at St Botolph’s with the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives. We want our children to be informed, active and responsible citizens who can thrive in the ever-changing world that is developing around them. Children’s health, well-being, happiness and safety are our first priority here at St Botolph’s and our PSHE curriculum is the key vehicle through which we teach, share and promote the value of this with our children.Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education curriculum will equip all pupils at St Botolph’s with the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives.

Our PSHE curriculum aims to:

  • Enable our pupils to become healthy, positive, independent, active and responsible members of society.
  • Prepare our children for the opportunities and experiences that they already face and those that they may face in later life.
  • Provide our pupils with the information required to stay safe and healthy, both emotionally and physically.
  • Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children.
  • Teach our pupils about rights and responsibilities, encouraging respect, diversity and equality.
  • Develop resilience to allow our pupils to deal with change.

Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)

 

St Botolph’s Primary School believes that relationship and sex education in this school is an entitlement of all pupils and will be developmental, starting children on the path of creating a happy and successful adult life. Each child has a right to feel happy in their own skin and needs knowledge enabling them to make decisions about their own health, relationships and well being yet equally knowing who and where to access support when it is needed.

 

We define relationship and sex education as a lifelong learning about physical, moral, mental and emotional development. It is about understanding the importance of stable and loving relationships/ families (regardless of the makeup of each family). It is also about the teaching of sex and sexuality. We do not promote sexual activity or sexual orientation.


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).

 

We will send out packs at the beginning of each year giving parents an overview of what will be taught in each year group and the vocabulary covered. these will be sent out in the next few weeks. 

If you have any concerns or worries about any part of the program in relation to your child, please contact the school and we will be more than happy to discuss these with you.

 

The policy is currently being reviewed and will be sent out to governors and parents for feedback in the next few weeks. The Overview of the whole school is also being amended in light of the new RSE statutory guidance. 

The safeguarding officers at St. Botolph's are Mrs Wilson (Head teacher), Mrs Bellaby (Deputy Head Teacher) and Mrs Valentine
