Personal Social Health and Economic Education curriculum

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE)

All classes at Randwick follow the SCARF curriculum which is adapted by each class teacher to ensure the needs of their individual classes are met. This scheme has key values running through which align with our own school values and as a spiral curriculum, constant revisiting allows children to understand concepts and issues in more depth as they get older. Through this comprehensive scheme, we know that we meet the statutory requirements of  Relationships Education  (for primary schools) and PSHE curriculums as set out by the Government. By following the SCARF curriculum through school we know that children will meet the statutory end of primary outcomes.

Relationships, Sex and Health Education (RSHE)

The Department of Education announced changes to the relationships and health education following a nationwide consultation. These changes came into effect from September 2020 and all schools are required to comply with the update requirements. Due to Covid 19 this was delayed until the summer term 2021.

This means that we are routinely reviewing our RHE (Relationships and Health Education) curriculum and policy so we can be sure our RHE provision is appropriate for our pupils based on their:

  • age
  • physical and emotional maturity
  • religious and cultural backgrounds
  • special educational needs and disabilities

Relationships Education

Relationships Education will put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online. Your child will be taught what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who can support them. In an age-appropriate way, we will cover how to treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect.

By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:

  • families and people who care for me
  • caring friendships
  • respectful relationships
  • online relationships
  • being safe

Health Education

Health Education aims to give your child the information they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing, to recognise issues in themselves and others, and to seek support as early as possible when issues arise.

By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:

  • mental wellbeing
  • internet safety and harms
  • physical health and fitness
  • healthy eating
  • facts and risks associated with drugs, alcohol and tobacco
  • health and prevention
  • basic first aid
  • changing adolescent body
