RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) and Health Education
At Airedale Junior School, we believe in providing a broad and balanced curriculum for our all our pupils. As a part of your child’s education, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through a carefully planned and taught programme of Personal, Social, Health and Social Skills (PHSE) education, a bespoke social skills curriculum, and a comprehensive RSE scheme. Thus ensuring our children and young people are equipped with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
Our RSE scheme follows the Christopher Winter Project (CWP) resource ‘Teaching SRE with Confidence in Primary Schools’. The CWP scheme of work, has been quality assured by the PSHE training association and reflects the recent developments in RSE and the Science National Curriculum. It is a comprehensive scheme of work which has lesson plans and resources from Reception to Year 6. Within the resource there is an increased focus on safeguarding/keeping children safe. The resource also encourages children to develop the skills of listening, empathy, talking about feelings and relationships with families and friends. The resources in this scheme are age and developmentally appropriate.
