Personal, Social, Health Education
The subject is usually known as PSHE. Work centres on helping children understand about relationships, their own feelings and issues relating to growing up e.g. friendships, bullying, personal changes. The work is often done in circle time where the children have an opportunity to talk about issues. Recently, the Government have given primary schools guidelines on citizenship and these are part of our PSHE programme.
Additionally, pupils will cover aspects of Staying Safe, including online safety. It is vital that pupils are aware of aspects of safeguarding and are equipped with the skills and knowledge to protect themselves and stay safe in the 21st Century. (Further information on the safeguarding curriculum can be found in the safeguarding section of the website)
Sex education is an integral part of the Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum. Governors have agreed a Sex Education Policy in line with Kent Guidelines.
