PSHE, RSE and Protected Characteristics
PSHE is woven through everything we do. This ensures our children have the skills and knowledge that they need to succeed in life as citizens of the world. Our PSHE encompasses a layered approach of both planned and responsive teaching to ensure the needs of all children are met. PSHE knowledge is taught through discrete weekly lessons. We continually try to identify areas where children may need personalised provisions either as a year group or as individual children, examples of which include whole class lessons, counselling and nurture. We take part in national events, such as: Antibullying Week, Local History Week, Safer Internet Day, Et al to raise collective awareness of issues specific to our children. These are shared with parents and the wider community to support conversations and raise awareness around these topics at home. PSHE is taught through six areas: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. These areas have been selected to ensure our children are taught the life skills they need to be safe, well-rounded global citizens.
