PSHE education is the school subject through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
From September 2020, it will be compulsory for all primary schools to teach Relationship Education and Health Education. This will be delivered through our Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum.
At Telford Junior School, our PSHE programme of study promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in life. It provides pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the local and wider global community.
Sex education has always been an important part of our curriculum. This is in line with the Department for Education (DfE) recommendation, that all primary schools should have a sex education programme tailored to the age and maturity of the pupils.
In our school we choose to deliver Personal, Social, Health Education (including Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education) using elements from the PSHE Association, Protective Behaviours and My Feelings, Friends & Family.
Our PSHE curriculum aims to help children know and value who they really are, how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world and support their mental health and wellbeing.
