RSHE

 

At Lowedges Junior academy, we believe that personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) and (RSE) relationship and sex education, are both vital in allowing pupils to develop in to mature and responsible members of society. Our aim is to provide, throughout the curriculum, rich and vibrant opportunities which draw upon real-life experiences and provide our children with the cultural capital to succeed in life.

We will provide children with the knowledge and skills they need to ensure that they are capable to overcome any social or personal barriers which they may encounter on their journey to adulthood in order that they are prepared for a life in modern Britain.

We recognise the importance of developing pupils to become responsible members of their academy and local community which is why we understand that life skills are essential aspects of a school’s curriculum. We seek to develop in pupils a sound understanding of looking after their mental health and wellbeing.

Lowedges Junior Academy follows the Sheffield RSHE scheme of work, where we have developed our long term plan to ensure it links and provides cross curricular learning with other curriculum areas. Most lessons within our new RSHE scheme are built on an engaging ‘hook’, such as a picture book, video or image. 

 

Through RSHE, we aim for all pupils to know: 

  • what is meant by a healthy lifestyle                                                                          
  • how to maintain physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing
  • how to manage risks to physical and emotional health and wellbeing
  • ways of keeping physically and emotionally safe
  • about managing change, including puberty, transition and loss
  • how to make informed choices about health and wellbeing and to recognise sources of help with this
  • how to respond in an emergency
