At St. Ebbe’s, we combine PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) and RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) under the umbrella term: Personal Development.
Teaching healthy relationships is central to children becoming ‘wise, compassionate citizens’ who are able to appreciate and connect, rather than argue and fight, with others, even if they disagree. Our RSHE curriculum includes lesson plans from Andrew Moffat’s ‘No Outsiders’ scheme of work which teaches children about respectful relationships: face to face and online friendships, staying safe in relationships with friends and adults, how to safely say no and the different family relationships that children may live within. We want every child in our school to feel accepted regardless of their ethnicity, religion, ability, family shape or any other characteristic: acceptance and kindness towards other people, even if our families, cultures and beliefs are different.
This content will be taught through books, pictures and stories during Circle Time, through Science, PE and Computing and of course through our projects.
