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.

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
