At Broadwater, we believe PSHE is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. The well-being of children is at the heart of everything we do and our well-delivered PSHE curriculum aims to equip children with a deep understanding of core values that teaches respect, inclusivity, tolerance and understanding so children are empowered to manage their own well-being and make sensible and aspirational decisions about their futures.
Our programme of study aims to develop skills and attributes including resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team-working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes - Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Within these themes, in accordance with the statutory changes and guidance from the Department of Education (2020), we cover compulsory Health Education, Relationships Education and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE).
Through the Health, Relationships and RSE topics, children will learn about what constitutes a healthy relationship, both now and in their future lives. Our pupils will also understand they have a responsibility to themselves to respect their own bodies and to look after their own mental and physical well-being as they grow into adults.
