RSE (Relationships and Sex Education)

Intent

To enable pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. Our core values are to raise: Caring, respectful children with good social skills underpinned with honesty and integrity. Imaginative individuals who think critically and reflectively. Children who are masters of the basic skills in all areas of learning. Confident, independent and resilient learners for life. Pupils who are respectful of diversity and value all communities. Secure pupils in their own set of personal values and guiding principles.


Implementation

At Audlem we use our own scheme. It concentrates on three main strands of learning: Health and Well Being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. It also incorporates the statutory requires for Relationships and Sex Education.


We also hold regular assemblies, which incorporate British Values and SMSC. The children have a wide range of opportunities to implement their learning in specialist days, events, trips, sporting activities and curriculum pledges. Ensuring that we give our children as many 'real life' learning experiences as possible.


Impact

Children will learn how to become valued citizens and leave Audlem Primary School ready to embrace the next stage in their lives and learning. At all times 'Letting their Light Shine.' Children will be caring, respectful with good social skills underpinned with honesty and integrity. Imaginative individuals who think critically and reflectively. Children will be masters of the basic skills in all areas of learning. Confident, independent and resilient learners for life. Pupils will be respectful of diversity and value all communities. Secure pupils in their own set of personal values and guiding principles.

PSHE

PSHE promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.


We aim to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals, within the community and modern Britain. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.


PSHE is carried out throughout the whole school day as well as an hour session throughout the week. This can be in a range of ways for example: listening to others, talk partners, sharing feelings, developing inference about characters in stories and focusing on similarities and differences. At playtimes we offer pupils a half and half playtime where they can play games, colour and enjoy a quieter social playtime.


Relationship and Sex Education

At Audlem we believe that the essential aim of Relationship and Sex Education should be to provide pupils with the knowledge and skills to enable them to make informed and responsible choices in later life, emphasising the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.


We believe that Relationships and Sex Education should contribute to promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at school and of society and preparing pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.


It should be taught within a climate of trust, respect and appropriate confidentiality, in which pupils and adults feel able to talk openly and honestly. Audlem School nurtures every child to enable them to achieve beyond expectations and develop into confident individuals with a lifelong love of learning, equipped with the skills they need to thrive in a rapidly changing world.


Children need to learn about:


-Different types of relationships (e.g. friendships, family, intimate);
-recognising, understanding and building healthy relationships;
-how relationships affect health and wellbeing (including mental health);
-safety online;

RSE is taught within the personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education curriculum. Biological aspects of RSE are taught within the science curriculum, and other aspects are included in religious education (RE).

RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. RSE involves a combination of sharing information, and exploring issues and values. RSE is not about the promotion of sexual activity. Pupils also receive stand-alone sex education sessions delivered by staff.


Relationships education focuses on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships including:


-Families and people who care for me
-Caring friendships
-Respectful relationships
-Online relationships.
