PSHE & RSE
PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education.
PSHE allows children to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
The national curriculum also states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice'.
In June 2019, the Department for Education launched the final statutory guidance to accompany introduction of compulsory health education, relationships education and relationships and sex education (RSE) in 2020.
At Ilmington we use a programme called SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship) to deliver all aspects of PSHE and RSE to our children.
We also use the Warwickshire Protective Behaviours and All about Me Programmes in the Autumn and Spring terms, to delivery key safeguarding messages within the RSE Curriculum.
