Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE), Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Citizenship
Our intention is for every Weston pupil to be prepared for the next stage of their lives, high school and beyond, in a personal sense. We want them to have a clear understanding of themselves and what makes them special. We want them to understand how to look after themselves physically and emotionally. We want them to know how to establish and maintain positive relationships and to understand what it means to be a successful member of the 21st century diverse society they live in.
In order to achive this, we provide PSHE, RSE and Citizenship education through a spiral programme from Year 1 to Year 6, which builds on the learning and experiences that children have in Reception through the Personal, Social and Emotional strand of the Early Years Curriculum. It gradually expands and enriches key concepts, increases knowledge, deepens understanding, and rehearses and develops key skills through a thematic approach.
Our approach focusses on three broad strands: Relationships, Living in the Wider World and Health and Wellbeing. Through these strands, the curriculum is delivered in an age-appropriate way, with pupils' knowledge, skills and understanding in each area being built upon and developed as the children progress through the school. In addition to these formally taught sessions, we integrate these themes into the wider curriculum and reinforce them through assemblies.
We know that Weston pupils leave us as rounded, empathetic individuals, with a clear understanding of what it means to be successful personal, socially, in relationships and with their emotional health.
