Relationship Education and Health Education Curriculum Statement
The aim of our Relationship Education and Health Education curriculum at Hawthorne Primary School is for:
- Children to be taught what a relationship is, what friends are, what family means and who they can go to for support.
- Children to develop the skills, knowledge and attributes that they need to keep themselves healthy and safe.
- Children to reflect on real life situations and are encouraged to challenge their ideas and other people’s in an appropriate way.
- Children to be taught a range of key skills to prepare them for life in modern Britain.
- Children to think, wonder and have the flexibility to do things in different ways.
- Children to understand the reasons behind what they are learning, so that they can take these key skills into their life.
- Children to receive key teaching in relation to British Values, Mental Health and Wellbeing and Relationships.
The ways that we implement this in school is through:
- RE and HE being taught across the whole school starting in Nursery up to Year 6.
- A clear and structured scheme followed in KS1 and KS2 where the skills are built on each year.
- Three clear themes following throughout the year (health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world)
- Weekly RE and HE lessons.
- Regular participation in themed weeks relating to RE and HE education including: anti-bullying week, Black History Month, UK Parliament Week, E-safety Day, Children’s Mental Health Week, Careers Day and Wellbeing week.
- Appropriate sex education lessons taught each year to each year group both as a discrete lesson and in science.
- Children to be aware of topics discussed in RE and HE- pupil discussions, learning walks.
- Range of activities develop open minded young people with an awareness for the people and the world around them- learning walks, working walls.
- Key skills are clearly good- learning walks, pupil discussions in lessons.
- Knowledge is retained – pupil interviews, learning walks, book scrutiny.
- Clear progression through a unit; over a year; across years- book scrutiny, working wall.
