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:
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.
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.
At Anston Hillcrest, we develop and promote British Values throughout our school on a daily basis in all we do and within our curriculum. A key part of our aim for children is for them to become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and leave school fully prepared for life in modern Britain.
The British Values we teach are:
The Rule of Law
Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs
From this learning our children will learn:
An understanding of how citizens can influence decision-making through the democratic process
An understanding that the freedom to hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
An acceptance that people having different faiths and beliefs to oneself (or having none) should be accepted and tolerated, and should not be the cause of discriminatory behaviour
An understanding of the importance or identifying and combating discrimination
British Values is something we see as very important for the children of Anston Hillcrest and something our children promote well.
