If you have any questions about Personal Development, please do not hesitate to speak to the Subject Leader, Deb Johnson (Year 5 teacher). It is also worth looking at our wellbeing page which is in the parents section of the website.
From September 2020, Relationships and Health Education has become a mandatory part of the school curriculum. It forms part of our PSHE programme, which is taught right the way through our school.
PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. These are areas of great importance and will play a vital role in the lives of our children as they grow and develop into resilient adults. It underpins the ethos of Moira and part of everything we do as well as the discrete lessons the children have each week.
At present we are following the Coram SCARF Programme of study.
Our school introduces one key PSHE theme each half term across our school. Learning in this area is built upon as the year progresses and revisited in subsequent years.
The themes are:
- Me and My Relationships
- Valuing Difference
- Keeping Myself Safe
- Rights and Responsibilities
- Being My Best
- Growing and Changing
To support our teaching and learning, we have purchased a set of books specifically for Sex and Relationship Education units. A book list is in the document below. If you would like to view any of the titles, please contact the office to arrange a convenient time.
Units of work covering anti-bullying, sex and relationship education and drug education are revisited each academic year.
The remaining units are taught on a two year rolling programme.
