Relationship, Sex and Health Education at Homerswood Primary School enables pupils to learn about personal, social, moral and emotional development. It equips children and young people with the information, skills and values they need to have safe, respectful and enjoyable relationships and encourages mutually respectful relationships and empathy for others. It empowers them to take responsibility for their physical and mental wellbeing.
Our intent for the RSHE curriculum is for our pupils to grow up healthy, happy, safe and able to manage the challenges and opportunities of modern Britain. RSHE at Homerswood is a whole school approach and is inclusive of all pupils. Our curriculum aims to respond to the diversity of children’s cultures, faiths and family backgrounds. We have a commitment to ensure that our curriculum is relevant to all pupils and is taught in a way that is age appropriate.
At Homerswood School we follow a mindful and sequential RSHE scheme of work called Jigsaw, which is compliant with the statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education for September 2020. It is structured into 6 half-termly puzzles (units), with the whole school studying different aspects of the unit at the same time.
The units are:
Be The Best You Can Be Celebration Day
Wednesday 9th July 2014
To celebrate all of the amazing work the children at Homerswood have done this year to be the best they can be, we were visited again by our friend, the BMX ace Mike Mullen today. Mike reminded us to always try our best and never give up, even when we find things hard. Our Flying High curriculum encourages us to take risks and try new challenges - the SIX teachers that Mike jumped over today certainly did that!
Look carefully at the children's faces in the background as Mike launched over the brave (terrified?) staff! Brilliant!
