At Trinity Primary School, we believe the teaching of RHSE supports the wellbeing and emotional development of pupils and that it can give children the skills and confidence they need to manage their lives successfully and safely in the future. In order to become successful learners, pupils should develop lifelong strategies, which will positively affect their happiness levels and give them the skills they can then apply to all aspects of their lives. Contrary to belief, these are not skills that we’re born with. They are skills that need to be taught, modelled and developed as children grow. With this in mind, we acknowledge the importance of RHSE at Trinity. We have adopted the Jigsaw and One Decision PSHE schemes which fulfils all elements of the statutory guidance.
At Trinity Primary School we aim to teach a broad range of skills and games in Physical Education. We want to give children the tools and understanding required to make a positive impact in their own physical health and well-being. We want all children to experience a wide variety of sports and physical skills which will enhance life-long fitness and life choices. PE can challenge and promote self-esteem through the development of physical confidence and problem solving. It can teach children to cope with both success and failure in competitive, individual and team based physical activities.
The Relationship and Health curriculum embodies a whole school approach, it makes clear links with British Values and SMSC but RHSE is also embedded within the wider curriculum through cross-curricular work and also underpins behaviour and respect in all lessons and everything we do.
The RHSE policy in this school is that as part of the Relationship Sex and Health Education (RHSE) we will include sex education. Formal sex education is offered to Y6 children after written notification to parents/guardians. Individual’s questions are dealt with in an honest and understanding way.
