PSHE and RSE
The PSHE curriculum at St Edwards CE School provides values-based, progressive content that promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. Research shows that there is a link between a pupil’s wellbeing and positive mental health and academic achievement. Therefore, in order for our children to learn and be well, they need to have good mental health, resilience and the ability to keep themselves safe. Through our PSHE curriculum, we aim to equip children with these attributes and the skills to implement them in different contexts.
The RSE curriculum at St Edwards CE School aims to equip children and young people with the information, skills and values which they will need to lead safe, fulfilling, enjoyable relationships and help them go on, beyond primary school, to take responsibility for their sexual health and well-being.
In line with the DFE 2019 guidance, the focus of our RSE at St Edwards CE Primary School will be on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive, healthy, respectful relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults in all contexts, including online.
