The intent of our PHSE/RSE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is inclusive and assessable to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child. We follow the Jigsaw scheme of learning (which has been amended by the subject leader to suit the needs of Yohden pupils) on a weekly basis, which enables children to become healthy, confident, independent, and responsible members of society. It aims to help children understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many moral, social, and cultural issues that are part of growing up in a mindful manner. Children are provided with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. At Yohden Primary School, we aim to promote and reflect British Values in all that we do.
We have created a RSE scheme of work which follows both Government guidelines and the Science Nation Curriculum objectives so that children can embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life and can make informed decisions about their wellbeing and when facing risk. In KS2, children receive RSE which is tailored to the age, and physical and emotional maturity of the child.
Personal Development & British Values
At Yohden Primary, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and help them to form and maintain healthy relationships. Our curriculum helps our pupils to learn to respect themselves and others and move safely from childhood, through adolescence, into adulthood facing any challenges which may arise along the way. We create a wider awareness of religious, cultural, and moral values with respect for different ethnic groups, religious beliefs and ways of life. During lessons, diversity and difference are recognised, appreciated, and celebrated.
