PSHE & RSE Curriculum
Below are our Long Term Plans showing the themes we will cover in PSHE/RSE across the school.
We are developing packs to loan to parents. The packs contain books, stories, links, activities and resources to support parents supporting children at home around the often tricky subjects of Bereavement, Illness of a loved one, Stranger Danger, Divorce, Feelings etc.
We advise parents to look through the resources first to ensure suitability/appropriateness for your situation.
Please ask at the school office.

Relationships and Sex Education Parent Consultation (RSE)
Dear Parents and Carers,
First of all, I wanted to apologise for the delay in consulting. It was my intention to undertake this consultation in March 2020 but due to circumstances that arose, attention was diverted to other matters.
As a part of your child’s education at Hathersage St. Michael’s C of E (A) Primary School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
Our PSHE and Relationships programme of study has been developed using the PSHE Association Programme of Study and Skills Builder, British Values and Church of England School Values to develop a scheme of work that best meets the needs, including the local community context for our school. The programme of study offers clear progression from KS1 to KS2 building on the work of Development Matters within the EYFS.
During Key Stages 1 and 2, PSHE education offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences, which reflect pupils’ increasing independence and physical and social awareness, as they move through the primary phase. It builds on the skills that pupils started to acquire during the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online.
PSHE education helps pupils to manage the physical and emotional changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities.
From September 2020, it became a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum. Although schools have the opportunity to phase in the teaching of the subject up to summer 2021.
As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.
Consultation with parents and carers involves reading through the information provided on the school website on the Curriculum page under PSHE. This consultation will be available for two weeks. If you have any comments, concerns or queries, please respond to the Microsoft Forms Survey link text/emailed to you by midnight on 8th June 2021.
