PSHE and RSE
We believe that our personal development program ensures that our pupils leave Winton as confident, caring, intelligent, respectful global citizens who are ready for the world of tomorrow.
As a Rights Respecting School we know that it is essential to support pupils through their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development from the moment they enter the school by learning about ourselves and the world around us in early years. Learning through play allows us to take risks, make mistakes and how to socalise with others so that we can make life long friends. As we progress through the school, we learn across the curriculum and are encouraged to question the world around us and be inspired to be the best version of ourselves.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic
We follow a whole-school approach for PSHE through Jigsaw. This ensures that pupils are given the tools to have the best possible lige. The programme equips young people to be happier and healthier giving them agency to make their way through life.
We define relationships and sex education as learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health. Through RSE within PSHE education we aim to give children and young people essential information and skills for building positive, enjoyable and respectful relationships and staying safe both off and online. It enables pupils to explore their own and others’ attitudes and values, and aims to help build their self- esteem and confidence.
High quality Relationships, Health & Sex Education (RHSE) is every child’s right, no matter what their level of need or ability. We ensure RHSE is inclusive and meets the needs of all our pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). Relationships Education should be a priority for pupils, especially those with social, emotional and mental health needs or learning disabilities. With RHSE at the heart of the school’s PSHE curriculum it has the power to respond to these challenges, so it is essential that RHSE is a developmental programme of teaching for all, across all years. Introducing consistent vocabulary in relation to toileting and personal care, with euphemisms avoided, and also taking everyday opportunities to teach about consent and personal space will benefit all pupils. There are clear links between RHSE and safeguarding, equality, anti-bullying and behaviour policies, and our school values.
