At Sandilands Primary School the mental, physical and emotional well-being of our pupils is at the heart of what we do. PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education is at the core of our daily routines and interactions and is embedded across our curriculum through our nurture values and ethos.
We have combined the statutory requirements and guidance of the national curriculum with recommendations from the PSHE Association and Manchester Healthy Schools IMatter Curriculum to create our own programme of study. Our programme of study reflects the needs of our pupils and the community in which they live. Where appropriate links have been made to support our Rights Respecting School ethos and British Values.
Our PSHE curriculum consists of three core themes and is adapted to ensure there is clear progression of knowledge, skills and understanding. The core themes are:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the Wider World (Economic Well Being and Being a Responsible Citizen)
Our IMatter PSHE Curriculum covers the following themes:
- Relationships and Sex Education
- Mental and Emotional Health
- Keeping Safe
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Living in the Wider World
In March and April we carried consulted with parents and carers about our RSE curriculum offer: thank you to those parents and carers who provided feedback. If you would like to ask any questions or share your views, please get in contact with school and we will be more than happy to help.
Following the consultation period, we carried out a parent consultation evening through Zoom. This presentation can be found to the right of this page. If you have any further questions, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
To support the consultation process please find some sample RSE lesson plans, covering relationship and sex education content.
As a school we will ensure that the education we offer is age appropriate, sensitively presented and supports our children’s knowledge and understanding.
Parents have the right to withdraw from specific lessons following a discussion with the school. The Parental Right to Withdraw form can be found to the right of this page. This will need to be sent to the school for the attention of the headteacher.
Please read our RSE policy and explore the curriculum content for each year group on the yearly overview.
