We aim to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially and how they tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
At Lea Community Primary School we believe that Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is crucial in supporting children in their personal development, and underpinning learning in the classroom, school, and in the wider community. PSHE education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and able to form and maintain positive relationships with others. Children develop an understanding of the ever-changing world in which we live, develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively. Our children experience the process of democracy when forming the school council by an election process. We aim to encourage mutual respect, resilience, pride, independence and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere. Within our teaching of PSHE we also cover a range of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) teaching in order to prepare our children for life in Modern Britain.
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE)
As a part of your child’s educational experience at Lea Community Primary School, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education that gives children and young people the knowledge, under-standing, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education following nationwide consultation which came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the updated requirements. The statutory guidance can be found at:
