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' supported by the resource, 'Understanding Christianity for Religious Education'.  As a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School, our foundations are embedded in the Church of England and knowledge and understanding of Christianity remains central to the ethos and teachings of the school. However, children also learn about, and from, other world religions in accordance with the agreed syllabus. Children are taught RE by exploring religious stories, festivals, artefacts, rituals, beliefs and places of worship. We have strong links with St Nicholas Church in Wickham which is regularly used as a resource for learning and the ministry team 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.
