PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at Eastfield
It is a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.
PSHE and RSE lessons are delivered through a scheme called Kapow, which brings together PSHE and RSE education. Our lessons aim to provide children with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that they need to navigate the complexities of life in the 21st Century. The curriculum covers key areas which will support the children to make informed choices now and in the future around their health, safety, wellbeing, relationships and financial matters. Kapow Primary’s RSE/PSHE scheme of work covers the relationship and statutory guidance (as set out by the Department for Education), including the non-statutory sex education.
At Eastfield we deliver our PSHE and RSE curriculum with a child centred approach ensuring content is taught in an age and developmentally appropriate way for our children. We cover wider PSHE learning in line with the National curriculum requirements and are responsive to our children’s needs. We believe this is the best approach to support our children’s personal development, ensuring they can become well rounded, confident individuals and active members of society. In addition, we promote the five British Values which reflect life in modern Britain: democracy; rule of law; respect and tolerance and individual liberty.
