Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE at Rosebank
At Rosebank, PSHE is embedded throughout school life and is supported by our four school drivers: resilient individual, world citizen, healthy advocate, and respectful communicator. We aspire for our children to be confident learners who are respectful, know how to keep themselves safe and have the skills to manage their lives both during their time at our school and beyond.
We follow the SCARF scheme of work which promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience, and achievement. As a spiral scheme, children have increased opportunities to build on and embed the previous years learning, with lots of cross over of skills and knowledge between the 6 areas. These 6 areas are:
- Me and My relationships
- Valuing Difference
- Keeping Myself Safe
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Being my Best
- Growing and Changing.
With an ever-changing society, we aim to provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and the ability to show empathy to others. We will encourage them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to their school and their community, therefore become responsible world citizens. Through PSHE we aim to help children develop the knowledge, skills, and attributes, they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
Relationships and Health Education (RHE)
From 2020, the following subjects became compulsory in schools in England.
- relationship education in primary schools
- health education in state funded primary schools.
Relationships and Health Education at Rosebank Primary School is a vital element of our Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHE) curriculum. It makes strong links with our schools 4 drivers: Resilient individual, World Citizen, Health Advocate and Respectful Communicator. Within this area of PSHE, children explore the physical, emotional and spiritual development of a child into adult life. We want our children to have the factual knowledge to understand the changes that they will experience and have the knowledge and skills to be able to deal with these changes with confidence, maturity and responsibility. It is important that RHE is not taught in isolation and it supports pupils’ development of interpersonal skills with a foundation of respect for themselves and others around them. They will be taught the key skills and confidence to manage their lives as they encounter different relationships and move through puberty towards adulthood.
