PSHE and RSE Subject Leader: Mrs T Grimwood
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) is a necessary part of all pupils’ education to help them to stay healthy, safe, and prepared for life. Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) enables young people to learn about healthy relationships, their mental well-being and their understanding of their bodies.
PSHE and RSE in Each Stage
In EYFS, for PSHE pupils will show an understanding of their own feelings and those of others. They will begin to regulate their behaviour accordingly by learning the rules and knowing right from wrong and give focused attention to what the teacher says.
In RSE, pupils will be introduced to the key relationships in their lives; learning about families, explore friendships and how to practise calm methods when feeling upset or angry.
In KS1, pupils will understand how to make safe and fair places, show good listening skills, be able to work co-operatively and recognise their own feelings of when they need help when they feel worried and know what it is like to feel proud of achievements. This will all be delivered within PSHE lessons.
In RSE lessons, pupils will know what their body needs to stay healthy including what snacks are good for their bodies. They will learn about the importance and safety of medicines and how they can help when they’re feeling poorly. As well as this, pupils will learn about life cycles, ageing and how their bodies develop with age.
In PSHE at KS2, pupils will develop their growth mindset by understanding how to set personal goals for the year ahead, learn techniques to know how to face new challenges positively and know how to take positive action to help others. Pupils will be able to confidently evaluate their own learning strengths and know how to take responsibility for their own health.
In RSE, pupils will understand more about puberty, reflect on the development and birth of a baby, learn ways to boost their self-esteem of self and others, and understand how essential mutual respect is in relationships.
