PSHE and RSE Curriculum Intention
At Christ the King we recognise the importance of PSHE and the role it has in developing the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals. The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to prepare our children for life outside of the classroom and to help them build skills which will allow them to protect and keep themselves safe in the wider community. We strive to help pupils build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem through developing an understanding of themselves and others. Through our teaching of PSHE we will make a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The programmes of study for PSHE form an integral part of Christ the King Curriculum and these are modified to take into account the needs of all pupils, ensuring progression as the pupil moves through the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2.
The teaching of RSE(Relationship and Sex Education) is rooted in our Catholic faith and the teaching of the Gospel Values .It is our intention that pupils will learn how to foster healthy relationships and friendships in light of the wisdom of the Church. Pupils will flourish when they truly understand their innate human dignity, love and appreciation of themselves, including respect for their bodies, and the way they were made by God. RSE is is taught in a cross-curricular way beginning in the Foundation Stage and continuing throughout Key Stages 1 and 2. The 'Journey in Love' scheme of work is followed for RSE.
