How will the curriculum be delivered?

This guidance will form part of our school’s PSHE education programme which is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly.

We currently use the Twinkl scheme of work which ensures progression in knowledge, attitudes and values, and skills – including the key skills of social and emotional learning, known to improve outcomes for children.

Appendix 1 shows a brief overview of the topics covered in each year group.

All teaching in PSHE will take place in a safe learning environment and be underpinned by our school ethos and values. A variety of opportunities will be provided for pupils to ask questions to further their understanding and to find out more about what affects them personally.

We would also like to reassure you that the Department for Education has not introduced compulsory sex education at primary school. They are introducing Relationships Education at primary level, to put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships of all kinds. This will start with family and friends, how to treat each other with kindness, and recognising the difference between online and offline friendships.
