All About Me
All about me is a comprehensive RSE programme built on a spiral curriculum and based on a human rights approach and values.
It is grounded on the premise that it is much better to have positive messages and conversations delivered gradually over a child's time at primary school, in preparation for puberty and the next stage of human development
This approach enables children to develop the skills to recognise and manage healthy relationships - both online and in the real world.
Designed to build self-esteem and to explore personal identity, comprehensive RSE is about helping children to:
- make sense of the world they are growing up in
- recognise the differences and similarities between their peers and their peers’ families
- understand that every human being is unique and has the right to be respected
Comprehensive RSE has been shown to help keep children safe by allowing them to:
- realise that their body is fantastic and belongs to them
- distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate touching
- understand the foundations of consent - that no one has the right to touch you in a way you don’t like
- recognise the difference between public and private behaviours
In addition, comprehensive RSE helps children to develop their vocabulary and emotional literacy to enable them to express and manage their feelings. Children build their own support networks and the confidence to ask for help when they feel unsafe.
