Our PSHE Curriculum

 

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) plays a vital role within our inclusive curriculum to protect, inform and nurture all pupils to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. Children at St Margaret’s CE Junior School flourish as they develop healthy relationships and lifestyles, learn to keep themselves safe, grow in character and become valued, active citizens.

 

At St Margaret’s we follow the Jigsaw PSHE scheme. Please take a look at our PSHE curriculum HERE and a presentation on ‘How we teach PSHE at St Margaret’s’ HERE.

 

Within the PSHE curriculum, Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RHSE) is designed to equip children with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships, as well as preparing them for a successful adult life. The RHSE curriculum offers opportunities for pupils to learn to value themselves and their bodies.

 

As a church school, we take guidance from the Church of England Education Office who promote a faith-sensitive and inclusive approach to Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education (RSHE) is underpinned by two key biblical passages:

 

“So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them.”

(Genesis 1:27)

 

“I have come in order that you may have life – life in all its fullness.”

(John 10:10)

 

At St Margaret’s we have adopted the Church of England model ‘Charter for faith sensitive and inclusive Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education’, plus take guidance from ‘Valuing All God’s Children’. Relationships and sex education takes LGBT people into account. The Church of England’s teaching on human sexuality and a range of Christian views is taught, as well as a range of perspectives from other faiths and world views. Our St Margaret’s charter for faith sensitive and inclusive Relationships Education, RSE and RSHE can be found HERE.

 

“Central to Christian theology is the truth that every single one of us is made in the image of God. Every one of us is loved unconditionally by God. We must avoid, at all costs, diminishing the dignity of any individual to a stereotype or a problem. Church of England schools offer a community where everyone is a person known and loved by God, supported to know their intrinsic value. This guidance helps schools to offer the Christian message of love, joy and the celebration of our humanity without exception or exclusion.”

(Church of England ‘Valuing All God’s Children’)

 

This resonates with our school’s Christian vision:

 

'How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity' (Psalm 133)
