PSHE and RSE
Subject Lead - Miss Hamilton
My name is Miss Hamilton, and I am the subject lead for PSHE and RSE across our school. PSHE and RSE is a crucial puzzle piece when educating the ‘whole child’. We live in a rapidly changing world, where it is vital that our pupils begin to develop the skills needed to thrive in their futures. Emotional wellbeing and resilience have never been so important and PSHE/RSE is at the heart of ensuring our pupils are ready to learn. Our PSHE and RSE lessons offer our pupils a safe and welcoming space to explore topics such as friendships, family relationships, online safety, growing up and managing big feelings. Pupils feel empowered to make informed choices and are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to keep themselves and others safe both now and once they leave Holy Trinity. Please explore our curriculum page below to find out what our pupils are learning about in their classrooms.
Curriculum Intent - This is what we want the children to learn.
At Holy Trinity CE Primary School, we keep the Christian faith and its key concepts at the heart of our PSHCE/RSE curriculum. We believe in the education of the whole child and know that personal, social, health and citizenship education (PSHE) enable our pupils to live life in its fullest by becoming healthy, safe, independent, and responsible members of society. It aims to help our pupils to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We are a happy, inclusive, and caring place where every child’s voice is valued. Our PSHCE curriculum reflects our diverse community and ensures that our pupils will grow to be tolerant of and celebrate the differences between themselves and others. We expect high standards of behaviour and good manners throughout the school and aspire to be beacons of light in our school and wider community. Behaviour and attitude to learning is underpinned by values that are taught through our PSHCE lessons, making it integral to the success of the whole school.
Through our relationships and sex education (RSE) we equip our growing pupils with the knowledge and skills needed to understand and navigate family relationships and friendships, as well as the changes that occur during puberty (Years 4-6 only). This is done with specific links to faith teachings of respect and love: for other people, as well as yourself.
