RSE and PSHE
RSE and PSHE underpins life at Ladycross Infant and Nursery School.
At Ladycross we believe that nurturing happy and healthy children is central to all aspects of their learning and development.
As a result of our curriculum, every child will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to make informed, healthy and moral life choices.
We want our pupils to leave Ladycross as PROUD, confident, and independent members of society, with an awareness of their rights and responsibilities as valuable and respectful individuals.
We use Kapow Primary to give children the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they need to effectively navigate the complexities of life in the 21st Century. The curriculum covers key areas which will support our children to make informed choices now and in the future around their health, safety, wellbeing, relationships, and financial matters and will support them in becoming confident individuals and active members of society.
Kapow Primary’s RSE/PSHE scheme of work covers the Relationships and Health Education statutory guidance (as set out by the Department for Education), including the non-statutory sex education. The scheme also promotes the four fundamental British values which reflect life in modern Britain: Democracy; Rule of Law; Respect & Tolerance and Individual Liberty.
The Kapow Primary scheme offers a whole school approach which consists of five areas of learning:
- Family and relationships
- Health and wellbeing
- Safety and the changing body
- Economic well being
Each area is revisited every year to allow children to build on prior learning and the lessons provide a progressive programme. Kapow Primary supports the requirements of the Equality Act through direct teaching, for example learning about different families, the negative effect of stereotypes and celebrating differences, in addition to the inclusion of diverse teaching resources throughout the lessons.
We also recognise that RSE/ PSHE can be taught and applied through daily practices such as assemblies, school clubs, school events as well as break times and across other curriculum subjects.
Children at Ladycross will foster well-being and develop resilience and character to be happy, successful and productive members of society. Pupils will have met the objectives set out within the Relationships and Health Education statutory guidance and will be able to utilise their learning within their daily lives, from dealing with friendship issues to making healthy choices and knowing where and how to get help when needed.
