PSHE and RSE
As a part of your child’s education at Anston Hillcrest, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE) curriculum. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential. The Department for Education has made it statutory for all schools to teach Health Education and Relationships Education from September 2020.
Relationships education will give pupils the foundation to build safe, positive relationships with those around them, including online. Your child will be taught what friendships and relationships are and what family means. We are committed to teaching relationships education in a positive, age-appropriate way, encouraging all pupils to treat others with kindness, consideration and respect. Throughout their time with us, pupils will be taught about the following:
Being me in my world
Dreams and Goals
Growing and Changing
More information about these aspects can be found in the PSHE policy
At Anston Hillcrest, we are using the JIGSAW scheme of work in order to deliver full coverage of the PSHE scheme. The scheme is taught to prepare children to play an active role as members of a democratic society, preparing them to develop into independence, responsible citizens and to make informed choices about their own lifestyle now and in the future.
Please find attached below a guide for parents which will explain more about the scheme.
Relationship and Sex Education
The new Relationship and Sex Education guidance comes into force in September 2020.
You cannot withdraw your child from Relationships Education because it is important that all children receive this content, covering topics such as friendships and how to stay safe. At Anston Hillcrest we have chosen to also teach Sex Education. If you’d like to know more about this, we recommend speaking to the class teacher about what will be taught and when.
During the summer term we will invite you in (parents of children in Class 6) to discuss the resources we will show your children and how Sex Education will be taught.
If you do not want your child to take part in some or all of the lessons on Sex Education, you can ask that they are withdrawn. At primary level, the head teacher must grant this request.
We will send a refusal slip out - we will assume that unless we have written refusal, that all children will be taught Sex Education.
In this section you can find the PSHE long term plan coverage, a guide on what JIGSAW is and a information leaflet for parents. Please note we will not be covering the Changing Me part of the scheme, for this section we will be using the ROSIS Scheme for the RSE coverage.
