Relationships and PSHE

 

PSHE (Personal, social, health and economic education) is a non-statutory subject, but a necessary part of primary education. As such, it has always been high-priority at Parkdale; indeed, we have built much of our values-based curriculum around it. 

Our intent at Parkdale is that every child: develops the skills, knowledge and values to help them create a happy and successful adult life; is enabled to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships; builds self-efficacy. We aim for every child to be able to make sound decisions and to know when, how and who to ask for support.

The Curriculum:

PSHE is non-statutory, although Relationships Education was made compulsory in new regulations in 2019. Pupils at Parkdale are taught:

  • About families and ‘people who care for me’
  • Caring Friendships
  • Respectful Relationships
  • Online Relationships
  • Being Safe

The video below gives full detail of coverage for each year group.

In Year Six, Sex Education – covering how a baby is conceived and born – is offered with the parental right of withdrawal in situ.

All year groups also undertake an annual programme of e-safety awareness

 

Consultation

In the school year 2020-21, extensive consultation was completed at school and Trust level, with parents, the wider religious community and other stakeholders, regarding delivery of the new RSHE content. The consultation documents and resources are available below on this page.

Our bikes and tricycles are so popular that we have introduced a booking system! We pop our names on the list and wait for our number to come up. What a fabulous independent way to share and take turns.
