Since December 2018 we have began reviewing our curriculum , listening to parent views and commenced consultation on our policy.
On this page you will find up to date information that is being given.
What is the purpose of our RSHE curriculum?
We want to enable children to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life.
•the knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships
•the opportunity to put knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts.
•recognition that everyone faces difficult situations in their lives – how can we support children to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support
Why is their new guidance now? What is it about?
