Purpose of Study
Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship enables pupils to develop the knowledge and understanding, skills, attitudes and values which are necessary for them to make sense of the responsibilities, opportunities and experiences which are part of their lives both now and in the future.
Aims and Objectives:
We aim for our children to develop appropriate attitudes and behaviour which will continue with them throughout their school and adult lives. This will, in turn, promote meaningful relationships and transitions to realise their personal ambitions in a complex and ever changing world.
The aims of Personal, Social and Health Education and Citizenship are to enable the children to
- Stay as healthy as possible
- Learn to keep themselves and others safe
- Develop effective and satisfactory relationships
- Learn to respect the differences between people
- Be independent and responsible members of the school community
- Develop self-confidence and self-esteem and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues.
- Develop good relationships with other members of the school and the wider community.
We use the National Framework for Key Stage 2. This is implemented by planning using the Rotherham Scheme of work.
The Rotherham Scheme of Work provides clear guidance for each year group to support the delivery of PSHE lessons. It is delivered in discrete curriculum time including Circle Time, in other subjects where there are cross curricular links, in assemblies, and also in incidental opportunities as they arise.
Below is the RoSIS PSHE Scheme of work overview
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 Park Junior School we 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.
If you do not want your child to take part in some or all of the lessons on Sex Education, you can ask that they are withdrawn.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
