PSHE

Including Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) 2020 Policy statement

 Intent

Personal, social and health education (PSHE) gives pupils the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare themselves for life and work in modern Britain.

At The Rose School the PSHE curriculum brings together citizenship with personal well being, careers, relationships and sex education whilst promoting British Values.

In order to be happy, successful and more independent in adult life pupils will need the knowledge to be able to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build self confidence and self worth we feel that our curriculum can facilitate them in these things.

Implementation

PSHE is taught as a discrete subject for 45 minutes each week in KS3 and KS4

Pupils also have blocks of time (term 2b 2020) when they have an extra 45 minutes each week solely on British Values.

PSHE is taught by A.Moran (AM) with R,O,S and E groups as well as KS4. M.Cutforth (MC) teaches Nuture pupils.

All staff are involved in the 45 minute British Values teaching in Term 2b, with subsequent revisiting of British Values in lessons and discretely every Half Term.

At KS3 we use the information from the PSHE Association to guide planning and resources from EHC Resources in lessons which are tailored to our pupils as well resources developed in house.

Some of our pupils are Yr6. They will take part in Relationship lessons in a different room when KS3 pupils are continuing with RSE lessons. The Year 6 will cover this material in Yr9 (as PSHE units are on a 3 year carousel)

Standardisation of this is through Mrs Moran and Mrs Cutforth meeting to discuss the planning and implementation of the lessons.

At present we use the AQA PSE Award(5800) at KS4, these do not cover all aspects of KS4 RSE 2020 so the curriculum units are supplemented in order to do so.

Mrs Moran teaches Year 10 and 11 in school for 45 minutes a week.

Rose+ pupils are completing units of PSE which are delivered by Rose+ staff – Sylvia Clarke and Zoe Eldridge. Rose+ pupils have a tailored programme that loosely follows the curriculum map for their Year group. The unit they are working on depends on their start date on Rose+ and engagement in the work over time.

Standardisation of this is ensured by Amanda Moran (AM) working closely with Sylvia and Zoe and also AM marking all the units for AQA Assessment.

Impact

Pupils take part in discussions and feedback sessions in order to show their knowledge and understanding. Pupils emotional and social development is measured throughout the whole school with SMART targets linked to their ENCP plans that are reviewed throughout the year. There are also personal targets recorded daily on their points sheets. Once a pupil is meeting a target regularly these are changed to address another area of social, emotional need.

At KS4 the units completed are tailored to their academic ability with them being able to complete work at any level from EL1 – L2. Most pupils in 2019/2020 are achieving EL3 / L1 in school, with the majority on Rose+ achieving EL2.

PSHE contributes to safeguarding in schools by helping pupils recognise unhealthy relationships and inappropriate behaviour, including staying safe online.

It also helps pupils to support and seek help for themselves and friends and family in unsafe situations and to recognise how their behaviour can put themselves and others at risk. 

 

Right to Withdraw

Do I have a right to withdraw my child from Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)?

A: Parents will continue to have a right to request to withdraw their child from sex education delivered as part of RSE in secondary schools which, unless there are exceptional circumstances, should be granted up to three terms before their child turns 16. At this point, if the child themselves wishes to receive sex education rather than be withdrawn, the school should make arrangements for this to happen in one of the three terms before the child turns 16 – the legal age of sexual consent.

There is no right to withdraw from Relationships Education at primary or secondary as we believe the contents of these subjects – such as family, friendship, safety (including online safety) – are important for all children to be taught.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/relationships-education-relationships-and-sex-education-rse-and-health-education-faqs

Letters are sent home to parents prior to sex education being taught in RSE. Parents can then contact school if they want to withdraw pupils.

This policy statement will be reviewed and updated following consultation with parents and governors in line with the new PSHE statutory guidelines.
