Personal, Social & Health Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)
As a part of your child’s education at Wildridings Primary School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives young people the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe and healthy lives and meet their full potential.
Our curriculum also includes the new RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) objectives. The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships including different types of families such as same-sex relationships, single parent families and blended families. Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give the children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
PSHE and RSHE learning comes in many different forms: through whole-class teaching, group activities, individual tasks, assemblies, outside speakers and visitors. During all sessions, children are encouraged to both ask and answer questions, to deepen their knowledge and understanding. It is very important to all staff that the classrooms are a safe environment where the children are able to share their views with respect from their peers.
Alongside discrete weekly PSHE lessons, we have also promoted other events such as Anti-Bullying Day, Children in Need, Children’s Mental Health Week, Road Safety Week and have shown that we care for our environment through litter picking and planting trees.
In addition to the support we provide for our children, our welcoming Family Support Advisors are
fantastic at supporting families and caregivers. We have a Nurture Room to support children with
their confidence; those who need extra time with an adult and provide structured interventions.
