At Holmes Chapel Primary we teach PHSE and RSE as subjects through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. They are an integral part of all we do in school and whilst they are explicit subjects in their own right, they are also woven into all areas of the curriculum and school life. We believe that these skills and attributes will equip children to stay healthy, safe and prepare for their future lives in the modern world. They will help our children to achieve their potential and leave school equipped with skills that will support them throughout their lives.
Our PSHE curriculum closely follows guidance from the PSHE Association using the PSHE Association Primary Programme Builder – a question based model which meets the requirements of the 2014 NC as well as incorporating new requirements from Sept 2020. It is organised into 3 core themes; Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. This curriculum area is integrated into our PSHE curriculum, with many areas being taught within or alongside our main themes. RSE is integrated into our PSHE curriculum, with many areas being taught within or alongside our main themes.
