PSHE/RHE Curriculum

Our PSHE curriculum provides opportunities for children to develop their emotional intelligence, self-regulation and build their resilience. We believe that helping children find out who they are and recognising their place in the wider world, through character development, is equally important as academic success.

Our revamped house system reflects the diversity seen in the school and celebrates people who have created a positive impact in the West Midlands.

We recognise the role that all stakeholders play in our children’s education and work in unity to develop a set of values that provide a strong moral compass to help children thrive in life. We teach children to respect, celebrate and contribute positively to the diverse communities in which they live and learn, becoming responsible participants of modern Britain, as well as global citizens.

Alongside this, we strive to help children understand the importance of keeping healthy in both body and mind and provide them with the support they need so they can find the correct help when they need to. Our positive behaviour policy works alongside the curriculum to ensure our children’s mental and physical wellbeing is at the forefront of what we do.

We are Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. These rights are taught through assemblies and across the curriculum.

Relationships and Health Education

We want all children to grow up healthy, happy, safe, and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of living in modern Britain. That is why, from September 2020, the law required all primary age children to be taught Relationships and Health Education (RHE)

RHE will put in place the building blocks needed for children to form and maintain positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online.
