PSHE Intent Statement
At Ludlow Junior School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them 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 provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. For example, children are encouraged to take responsibility within their class community as well as applying for roles within school such as: Cuisine for Kids, Site Squad, Sports Leaders, Prefect, Student Observers of Learning, and Librarians etc.
We take advice from the PHSE association to develop a curriculum that follows the three main strands of health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. This curriculum includes the compulsory updated RSE content. As a school, we teach Sex Education during Year 5 and 6 which parents have the right to remove their child from. All other elements within the RSE content remain compulsory, including teaching about the 9 protected characteristics under the 2010 equality act. Circle time, assemblies and additional PSHE sessions are planned for to address issues that may arise within the school or wider community during a school year. Within the school’s wider approach to PSHE, issues such as bullying are taught explicitly and are part of the school’s culture and ethos. Links are made within the computing curriculum around elements such as cyber bullying, e-safety and influence of the media.
