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 will consult with parents and carers about our RSE curriculum offer and respond to parent questions and concerns.
Please follow this link to complete our parent survey. The deadline is 5pm on Friday 26th March. https://www.surveymonkey.co.
Following the consultation period, we would like to invite parents and carers to an RSE information evening via Zoom. This will be held on Tuesday 27th April at 5pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place and submit any questions you would like to ask. The deadline for booking confirmation and question submissions is Friday 23rd April.
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.
