Concord Junior School

RSHE/PSHE

Our Intent

PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

At Concord, the RSHE Curriculum seeks to prepare children for the sometimes difficult lives they will face both in school and in the wider world. Through our curriculum, we provide children with the knowledge they need to show respect to all members of their diverse communities, whilst developing a sense of self-esteem and self-worth. 

Our intent is to empower our pupils to recognise a variety of issues, such as unhealthy relationships, online safety, mental wellbeing and physical health.

This will enable them to seek appropriate support and safeguard themselves from any difficulties they may face.

How our curriculum is designed

The curriculum explores key themes of: Families and People Who Care for Me; Caring Friendships; Respectful Relationships; Online Relationships; Being Safe; Mental Wellbeing; Internet Safety and Harms; Physical Health and Fitness; Healthy Eating; Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco; Health and Prevention; Basic First Aid; Changing Adolescent Body.

Within these themes, children will be given both substantive and disciplinary knowledge and commit learning to long-term memory by revisiting key areas.

Throughout our curriculum, children will not only learn how these areas apply to their own lives, but will also gain understanding of how these relate to a diverse range of people, through direct links to the Fundamental British Values.
