At St Peter and St Paul, we aim to deliver a Relationships Education which ensures that our pupils acquire the knowledge, skills and values to thrive academically and socially, and develop the self-belief to embrace their future lives with confidence as God intended.
We teach Relationships, Health and age-appropriate Sex Education as part of our PSHE curriculum. Further information about our PSHE curriculum can be found here.
By the end of Year 6 our pupils will know about different types of positive relationships; including caring friendships, families and people who care for them, respectful relationships and online relationships. They will develop an understanding of boundaries as well as learn ways in which they can keep themselves safe e.g. knowing where to get advice and who to report their concerns to.
At St Peter and St Paul we use the Jigsaw whole school approach, as it supports our teaching staff to deliver this content in a progressive way which builds on our pupils prior learning.
"Jigsaw holds children at its heart, and its cohesive vision helps children understand and value how they fit into and contribute to the world. With strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health, Jigsaw 3-11 properly equips schools to deliver engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole-school approach. Jigsaw lessons also include mindfulness allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration, focus and self-regulation."
Please see the curriculum map below which highlights the Relationships content.
As we are in the process of expanding to become a primary school, we are due to consult on our Relationships and Sex Education Policy for Key Stage 2.
If you have any questions in the meantime please speak to Rosie Burgess, our PSHE and RSE subject leader.
