At Rowley Park Academy, our PSHE curriculum is designed to reflect the needs of our pupils and the communities in which they live, and ensure they develop the skills and knowledge they need to live healthy, safe, fulfilled and productive lives.
Our PSHE curriculum is delivered through a combination of discrete lessons, lessons related to our NICER Curriculum, and through whole school events, assemblies and project days or weeks. These combine to ensure pupils develop the knowledge and skills to be able to:
• Understand what is meant by a healthy lifestyle
• Develop positive, respectful relationships
• Understand and value themselves and others
• Make informed choices regarding personal, economic and social issues
• Understand how to keep themselves safe, including online
• Be self-confident and aspirational
As you may be aware, from Summer term 2021, the Department for Education is making Relationships and Health Education (Primary) and Relationships, Sex Education and Health Education (Secondary) compulsory in all schools. To ensure that we further promote the personal wellbeing of the children, whilst meeting new statutory requirements, we are reviewing our current PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) policy, to incorporate the new RHE (Relationships, Health Education) curriculum content.
Below you will see the link for our draft PSHE and RHE policy which we are asking for your feedback on, and a Frequently Asked Questions sheet. If you have any further questions, please contact the school who will be happy to answer any further questions.
Please click the link below to provide your feedback; we thank you for taking the time to complete this.
Please note the consultation period will close on Friday 12th February 2021.
Our final policy and curriculum map will be uploaded after the consultation period has ended.
