We believe that providing the best possible education for our children includes activities, lessons, experiences, discussions and projects that will prepare pupils to be able to thrive when they are adults.
The curriculum we teach will enable our children to understand what is right and wrong, to teach them how to stay safe in the world, to be able to show kindness to others while challenging discrimination and inequality. The ultimate aim is to ensure our children grow up to be able to contribute to society while becoming good co workers, friends, partners and parents themselves.
Our Personal Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) Curriculum which includes our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Curriculum
Our PSHE education offers learning opportunities and experiences which reflect the increasing independence and physical and social awareness of learners as they move through the school. They learn skills to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and keep themselves safe. Our PSHE curriculum assists pupils to cope with the changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities and in turn, prepares them to be able to succeed in the future.
The RSE curriculum is statutory, is part of the National Curriculum and forms part of our PSHE and Science curricula.
The statutory RSE guidance can be found here.
The PSHE curriculum has three core aims, outlined below which includes our RSE curriculum:
) Health and Mental Wellbeing
) Living in the Wider World
Each area will be taught throughout the school year and will be tailored for the age of the pupils. Each area will provide the pupils with the following objectives

Pupils begin their PSHE journey with us during the Early Years Foundation Stage and the starting point of our curriculum design includes the areas for learning development of 'Personal Social and Emotional Development' and Physical Development'.
