P.S.H.E & R.S.E
At Sunnybrow Primary School we believe that pupils who are emotionally healthy do better at school. Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (P.S.H.E) and Relationship and Sex Education (R.S.E) help children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. Both P.S.H.E and R.S.E also help pupils to develop skills and aptitudes-like teamwork, communication and resilience-that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world and are increasingly valued by employers.
At Sunnybrow Primary School, we have devised our own comprehensive P.S.H.E curriculum (which also includes all elements of the new statutory Relationship and Sex Education) based on the needs of our children and local community. It is planned around three core themes-Health and Well-being, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Our curriculum is based on a ‘spiral’ model across the whole-school, which builds on knowledge, skills and understanding year upon year. Objectives are based around the three core themes: Relationships, Healthy Living and Living in the Wider World. This makes it easier to plan clear progression across the year groups and ensures that we have a comprehensive framework which carefully builds up knowledge, skills and understanding year-on-year. As we teach in mixed age classes, there is a 2-year cycle for the curriculum which is divided into Cycle A and Cycle B. P.S.H.E. is taught as a discreet subject and is timetabled for at least an hour week in each class.
