Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) and Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
Our intention in our PSHE and RSE curriculum is to ensure our children are able to express their views openly, learn about emotions and what self regulation means for them.
Our RSE education ensures a safe, secure and honest learning environment for our children. Learning in PSHE relates closely to our school culture, which is supported through our Vision, Values, and Positive Behaviours which are lived by all members of our school community. Learning in Computing (Digital Literacy & Digital Citizenship), History, Geography, RE, and Science also provide opportunities for purposeful links with learning in PSHE. In developing our curriculum for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education at Brookmead School, we have drawn on guidance and resources developed by the PSHE Association, Carol Dweck's work on Growth Mindset, and Leah Kuypers's Zones of Regulation, which teaches pupils how to foster self-regulation and emotional self-control.
Our full PSHE and RSE curriculum overview and progress in skills can be seen below. Our RSE policy is also below.
Our values are central to the impact of our PSHE and RSE curriculum:
Commitment & enthusiasm
Caring for others
Confidence & self-belief
Teamwork & cooperation
Honesty & fair play
Encouraging & supporting others
Taking pride in our learning
Being positive & ready to learn
Our PSHE curriculum is a central part of children becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults.
Children can approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.
From exposure to a range of global issues and problems, children can build up tolerance and a sense of responsibility of being a global citizen.
Children can understand the different lifestyles that people may live and be respectful and tolerant towards those leading different lives to themselves.
