RELATIONSHIPS AND PSHE
At St John with St Mark C of E Primary School we intend to deliver our Relationships programme by working in partnership with parents and the community to achieve the highest standards.
Our main goal is to encourage our children to be resilient, respectful, independent learners, who are equipped for lifelong learning. We see Personal, Social and Health Education as being at the centre of all that we do and we are pleased to enhance our children’s learning experience with the addition of Relationships Educations. Through our curriculum, our school environment and our ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, at school, at work and in the community.
The aims within our new curriculum meet the needs of every individual child with respect for our diverse community. Through the teaching of the subject and the overarching vision of the school; learning is tailored to promote the school values of responsibility, respect, compassion and truth.
All teaching staff will use a scheme of work called SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship), which builds on prior knowledge each year and allows children time to deepen understanding on different subjects within the curriculum.
Our Relationships programme is an integral part of our whole school PSHE education provision. We will ensure Relationships Education is matched to the needs of our pupils by regularly reviewing the objectives and activities set, highlighting needs and assessing each child individually Our Relationship Education programme will be taught through a range of teaching methods and interactive activities.
Thank you for your continued support.
