PSHE and RSE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic/ Relationships and Sex Education)
PSHE is at the heart of what we do at Coton CE Primary School - develop the whole child. At Coton, we want to give children the keys to flourish in their lives, both now, and in the future. It is essential, therefore, that our children have a deep understanding of themselves, our shared values, their place and responsibilities within society and understand how best to navigate the challenges of the modern world. We believe that PSHE has the power to enhance the health and wellbeing of all children, their families and the whole school community. It has a positive influence on the ethos, learning and relationships throughout the school. It is central to our values and to achieving our school’s aims.
By studying PSHE, the children are able to explore each of these core concepts within the safety of a nurturing classroom environment. Using the Cambridgeshire PSHE resources, our PSHE curriculum and wider Personal Development offer, is designed to equip children with the skills to thrive under the pressures and demands they may face within their lives. In order to support our children with their development as a child and into their future, our PSHE curriculum encourages the children to respect and value themselves as special and unique; to appreciate and celebrate others and build healthy relationships with them and to respect the world and make positive change within it as a global citizen.
