At Rosedale Primary School we recognise the importance of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and how they play a significant and integral part in their ability to learn and achieve. PSHE plays a key role in giving them the necessary tools, informing them in making safe choices now and preparing them for their future.
We use the You, Me, PSHE scheme to teach PSHE. In the scheme, PSHE is divided into 7 different strands. These are:
- Sex and Relationship Education
- Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Education
- Keeping Safe and Managing Risk
- Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing
- Physical Health and Wellbeing
- Careers, Financial Capability and Economic Well-being
- Identity, Society and Equality
As we understand the importance of SRE, we also use Big Talk to run alongside You, Me, PSHE to teach SRE (Sex and Relationships Education) at Rosedale Primary School. Each year, specialist Big Talk Education facilitators deliver Big Talk sessions at Rosedale Primary School for children in Nursery to Year 6. The 'Growing up safe' programme takes a progressive approach to RSE, as it builds on the previous year group. Prior to our in school sessions, Big Talk deliver Parent sessions to inform parents of the programme and a chance to ask and answer any questions regarding the content. Parents are able to buy the book that goes alongside 'Growing up safe' to enable them to continue the same messages at home.
The School Nursing Team also comes into school at key points to deliver RSE sessions. Children take part in a 'Safe Touch' talk in Year One. Year 5 children take part in a session on puberty.
