PSHE Curriculum Statement
The most important aim of our PSHE Curriculum is to develop within the children of Christ the King a sense of wellbeing as well as developing their learning which results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills that enables our children to access the wider curriculum and prepare them to be global citizens now and in their future roles within a global community.
Our curriculum has been designed with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the new PSHE three strands: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Relationship and Sex Education will be taught in line with the scheme of work.
Children will have accurate and relevant knowledge of PSHE. They will have opportunities to create personal understanding as well as the opportunity to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
The school curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
We are using the Life To The Full Programme provided by a Catholic company called Ten:Ten. We also use the Collective Worship and Assembly materials provided by Ten:Ten (As recommended by the Birmingham Diocesan Education Service and The Bishops’ Conference agency for education).
In addition to this, we have also implemented resources from the government funded PSHE Association to ensure that all children are taught to develop skills such as: Resilience, self-esteem, risk management, team work and critical thinking.
The Scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British Values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and schools key skills within the curriculum. Working in class: PSHE journals in each classroom… the journals will record the teaching of PSHE, British Values and SMSCV. Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies always make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSCV.
With a clear sense of understanding through their God-given rights and responsibilities, along with showing exemplary stewardship towards each other without prejudice or discrimination through our teaching. The pupils of Christ the King will demonstrate and apply the British Values of democracy, tolerance, mutual respect, rule of law and liberty.
Right to Withdraw
There is no right of parental withdrawal from Relationships Education or Health Education elements. Parents do have the right to withdraw from some or all of the sex education, outside of the mandatory requirements i.e. that stated within the science national curriculum.
