RSE and PSHE at Greenfields
At Greenfields, we are fully committed to giving all the children the building blocks and necessary opportunities to grow, develop and thrive in the wider world embracing the challenges of a happy and successful adult life. The aim of RSE at Greenfields is to teach the children key skills to negotiate healthy relationships including the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships, sex, human sexuality and sexual health. As outlined by the DfE, ‘It is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. It is about the understanding of the importance…for family life, of stable and loving relationships, respect, love and care. It is also about the teaching of sex, sexuality and sexual health. It is not about the promotion of sexual orientation or sexual activity.’
PSHE learning also includes key skills on maintaining their own physical and mental health, societal issues and dilemmas which may include racism, gang culture, homophobia, religious prejudice and ableism, economic understanding including managing money and wider learning such as road safety, personal safety, stranger danger, e-safety, fire safety and basic first aid.
