PSHE & No Outsiders
At The Crescent, we believe that Personal Development Learning covers the teaching of Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education. It is a statutory requirement as set out in the Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education (DfE Guidance 2020). As a curriculum area, it is designed to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need in order to lead confident, healthy and independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.
PSHE is a prime area of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. It is taught across the year through taught sessions and within play.
The Education Act 2002 states that all schools must provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which:
- Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
- Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life
Pupils will learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form effective, fulfilling relationships that are essential to life and learning.
The Crescent Primary School endeavours to improve the lives of children, young people and families. We celebrate our rich diversity and tackle all kinds of bullying. In doing so, we believe that our children will attain more at school and our community will be happier and more successful.
We celebrate all our children and their families without discrimination.
