At Knights Enham Junior School we provide…
Inclusive and ambitious learning experiences where our school community feels safe and motivated to achieve their best.
‘Together We Achieve’
PSHE - Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
The school is committed to offer pupils a carefully planned programme covering human development, relationships, sexuality and family life within a safe, comfortable atmosphere and with a relaxed relationship between teacher and pupil. The programme is set within a moral framework and matched to the pupils’ level of maturity.
We encourage an open-minded approach through which pupils learn to respect and value the opinions and beliefs of others, as well as learning to express their own viewpoints on important issues.
The teaching of RSE will be delivered to every year group throughout the school. It will be age appropriate and designed to build on knowledge each year. It is important that children learn about the changes that will happen to them at the right time, limiting confusion and anxiety. Children will build on previous years’ learning and subjects can be revisited and revised. It is important that RSE teaching starts early in primary school so that children can learn about their bodies; can recognise if other people make them feel uncomfortable or unsafe and can report abuse and get help. Lots of children start puberty before they leave primary school, so it is important that all pupils know what to expect before it happens.
At Knights Enham, we use SCARF, a comprehensive scheme of work for PSHE and Wellbeing education – incorporating RSE. We have chosen SCARF as our PSHE resource because the lessons build upon children’s prior learning; we have assessed the content and feel that it is relevant and sensitive to the needs of the children. There is planned progression across the SCARF scheme of work, so that children are increasingly and appropriately challenged as they move up through the school.
