PSHE and RSHE Curriculum Implementation:
We implement our RSHE and PSHE curriculum by mapping learning sequentially throughout the year. We use the following resources to support us in doing this: KIVA, No Outsiders, PANTS, National Online Safety and the National Curriculum for RSHE. Learning is mapped across the year groups using our ‘National Curriculum Ladder’.
The curriculum is planned so children learn about the following key themes: Families and People Who Care for Me; Caring Friendships; Respectful Relationships; Online Relationships; Being Safe; Mental Wellbeing; Internet Safety and Harms; Physical Health and Fitness; Healthy Eating; Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco; Health and Prevention; Basic First Aid; Changing Adolescent Body. These themes are organised repetitively to enable pupils to develop and also retain their learning, for example in Year 1 the children explore the Big Question: ‘How can we manage our feelings?’ and study the Project Values of: Choice, Consequences, Forgiveness and Honesty, and then later, in Year 5, the Big Question: ‘How can empathy for others and self-knowledge nurture personal wellbeing?’ and the Project Values of: Empathy, Contentment, Strength, Patience and Compassion.
PSHE and RSHE are taught for 1 hour every Friday in all classes, following the year group’s Medium Term Plan. A focus for each week is identified and teachers use the planning and resources from: KIVA, No Outsiders, PANTS, National Online Safety and the National Curriculum for RSHE to plan lessons which enable our pupils to explore and learn about all areas of the RHSE curriculum.
Each half term, year groups have a focus on: No Outsiders, KIVA, PANTS, RSHE and Online Safety.
No Outsiders – Enables us to deliver the requirements of Equalities Act 2010.
KIVA – Is a major part of our KS2 curriculum and is our school wide approach to tackling bullying and peer on peer abuse.
PANTS – Is the NSPCC resource to support teaching children that their bodies are their own.
RSHE Curriculum – We have identified when we teach all of the RSHE objectives, including: Science, Project Lessons, KIVA, and where we need to teach objectives discreetly.
National Online Safety Areas of Focus –
Privacy and Security
Self-Image and Identity
Health, Wellbeing and Lifestyle
