Personal, Social and Health Education and Relationship and Sexual Health Education at Wethersfield is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which the children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their relationships and lives now and in the future. This is taught both discretely and alongside other subjects, whereby it is relevant, such as science, RE and computing. Aspects are also covered weekly, in the themes of our assemblies, giving pupils the opportunity to share and reflect on the values we strive to adopt in our school and the wider community.
As part of a whole school approach, PSHE and RSHE develops the qualities and attributes the pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. It makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, their behaviour and safety.
We aim to equip pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible, balanced lives. To do this we employ a balanced range of teaching strategies and encourage active learning and participation. This may involve discussion, drama, role play or more formal pieces of work.
PSHE and RSHE is inherent within all aspects of school life such as assemblies, class and school councils, the Healthy Schools initiative and the Every Child Matters agenda.
Across the school we have many things that support the children in developing their inter-personal and social skills such as the opportunity to be a buddy, the chance to stand for school council elections, monitor roles and supporting and leading in assemblies.
