PSHE and RSE

The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more.

As a result of this, they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Aims and Intent

At Carnagill Community Primary School, the intent of our PSHE curriculum is to:

  • allow the children to develop learning and acquire new knowledge and skills which enables them to access the wider curriculum
  • prepare children to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community
  • ensure children will know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. Relationships Education is compulsory in all primary schools in England.

Aims and Intent

In Carnagill, our curriculum will focus on:

  • the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships,
  • family and friendships in all contexts
  • online relationships
  • understanding of how to be healthy

Teaching about mental wellbeing is central to these subjects, especially as a priority for parents is their children’s happiness. We know that children and young people are increasingly experiencing challenges, and that young people are at particular risk of feeling lonely. RSE will give them the knowledge and capability to take care of themselves and receive support if problems arise.

Please see our PSHCE policy or RSE policy for more details.

The Subject Leader for both PSHCE and RSE is Sarah Bradshaw.
