At The Beamish and Pelton Federation, we value PSHE as one way to support children’s development as human beings, to enable them to understand and respect who they are, to empower them with a voice and to equip them for life and learning
We include the statutory Relationships and Sex Education within our whole-school PSHE Programme. RSE is life-long learning about physical, moral and emotional development. Children learn about healthy relationships, different families, respect, love and care. In addition, children will be taught age-appropriate information about puberty, hygiene, the body and sexual reproduction.
PSHE in EYFS
Through Personal, Social, Emotional Development children are supported to build constructive and respectful relationships that allow them to play, learn and develop alongside both adults and their peers. As children make friendships they learn to manage conflicts and rivalries with the support of adults. Children are empowered to envisage themselves as valuable individuals who are aware of what makes them unique In the Early Years children are encouraged to express their feelings and adults carefully model the handling of these feelings and emotions to support children in becoming independent in moderating their own feelings. Children are taught to manage their own physical needs and understand the importance of respecting others privacy. A large part of the curriculum in the Early Years supports the developing resilience within young children, children are encouraged to persevere to meet their goals and targets. As a part of the learning journey experienced in the Early Years developing the understanding of rules and routines is an integral part that runs parallel to all.
PSHE in KS1 and KS2
