Our PSHE and RSHE

In the academic year 2020/21, Relationships Education and Health Education will become statutory in all primary schools in England.  This new subject will build on the non-statutory lessons we have previously taught in RSE.

As a Catholic school, our mission is to support the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all of our pupils, rooted in the wisdom and teaching of the Church. The education of children in human sexuality is an important, precious and privileged responsibility.  The Church teaches us that this is very much a partnership with parents, in which parents are the ‘first educators’ of their children on these matters; ultimately, you confer on us the right to co-educate your children with you.

 

We follow Ten Ten to teach our pupils about RSHE.

Ten Ten is taught with a spiral approach to learning, the programme includes teaching about personal health, physical and emotional well-being, strong emotions, private parts of the body, personal relationships, family structures, trusted adults, growing bodies, puberty, periods, life cycles, the dangers of social media, where babies come from, an understanding of the Common Good and living in the wider world.

The entire teaching is underpinned with a Christian faith understanding that our deepest identity is as a child of God – created, chosen and loved by God. The programme is fully inclusive of all pupils and their families.

Sacred Heart have created their own overview using Ten Ten and PSHE matters to ensure we have coverage of the National Curriculum inline with our catholic ethos.

Year 6 all have the opportunity to complete the DART PSHE course and Year 2 this year are completing EMUS, both with an outside provider. Parents have been sent information regarding these sessions in school.
