PSHE at Donisthorpe (inc Character Education)
Donisthorpe Primary School recognise every child as unique. Our Personal, Social, Health and Economic or PSHE curriculum enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be part of a diverse society.
We value developing the children’s character and put this at the heart of what we do. By valuing the children’s well-being, we aim to enhance the curriculum by linking the way we teach to developing the children as young people.
We aim to inspire, develop, nurture and promote the children’s moral, ethical, emotional and social beliefs. This is not taught in isolation but weaved through the curriculum that we deliver. As the children progress through the school, they should gain an understanding of our school ‘character muscles’ and why these skills are necessary for success in life.
Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) is the aspect of the curriculum concerned with the process of growing up and maturing physically and emotionally. Our aim is that children are prepared to meet the range of changes in their lives with accurate information and the confidence and skills to make healthy choices. For further information about RSE please contact school. Our policy can be found here.
