What is the intent of the PSHE/RSE curriculum at Sir Alexander
Fleming Primary School?
Our intention is that, when children leave Sir Alexander Fleming Primary School, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able
to play an active role today’s society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.
What do we want for our pupils?
Develop a confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions with others
Develop skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe
Develop an attitude of a responsible global citizen
To show tolerance of other beliefs, religions, and life choices.
To build positive, respectful relationships with other people
Our long-term aim is that meaningful PSHE/RSE lessons are the key to children
becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults. Children will be able to
approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to
help navigate themselves through modern life. From their exposure to a range
of global issues and problems, children will be able to build up tolerance and a
sense of responsibility of being a global citizen.
Progression through the PSHE/RSE curriculum
To learn PSHE/RSE effectively, it is embedded throughout school.
Implementation needs to ensure depth, accurate subject knowledge, detailed
planning and building on prior learning. We offer a comprehensive programme
for primary PSHE including statutory Relationship and Health Education, in a
spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work, giving children relevant
learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive
relationships with themselves and others.
We use the Jigsaw programme from Year 1 to Year 6, which consists of six half term units of work, each containing six lessons, covering each academic year.
Term 1: Being Me in My World
Term 2: Celebrating Difference (including anti-bullying)
Term 3: Dreams and Goals
Term 4: Healthy Me
Term 5: Relationships
Term 6: Changing Me (including Sex Education)
