Personal Social Health Education (PSHE)

Our PSHE curriculum provides activities and experiences, which allow pupils to gain an understanding of:

  • The human body
  • Mental health
  • Relationships
  • The conditions which promote healthy growth and development
  • Health hazards
  • Safety
  • Community health and safety services
  • Environmental and social health measures
  • The interdependence of man and other living things
  • Citizenship
  • Sex and relationships education


Sex and Relationships Education

In accordance with the Education (No 2) Act 1994, the Governors deem that sex and relationships education should be part of the curriculum of the school. This is taught as part of the PSHE programme and placed in the context of relationships, responsibilities and family life.

Governors believe that sex and relationships education at school should be complimentary to guidance given at home.  Therefore, parents will be given the opportunity to view teaching materials and to discuss them with staff so that a match may be achieved between home and school. A copy of our Sex and Relationships Education Curriculum Map is available to download from this page.

The Governors' full Policy on Sex and Relationships Education is available for parents from the School Office.  Legislation states that parents may withdraw their children from any part of sex and relationships education that is not part of the National Curriculum.  Any parents wishing to do this will need to contact their child's class teacher, or the Headteacher, to discuss the matter.


Religious Education

We follow the Hampshire agreed syllabus 'Living Difference'and Understanding Christianity for Religious Education.  Units of work linked to our class topics are studied by children across the school.  As a Church of England Controlled School we not only have strong links with St Nicholas Church but our foundations are embedded in the Church of England.  The main world religions are also explored in Key Stage 2 in accordance with the agreed syllabus. Children are taught RE through exploring stories, artefacts, festivals and workshops. St. Nicholas Church in Wickham is regularly used as a resource for learning and the Assistant Curate and Churchwardens support our planned areas of study.

Any parents wishing to withdraw their child from RE will need to discuss this initially with the Headteacher and confirm their decision in writing.
