P.H.S.E. and R.S.E.

P.H.S.E stands for Physical, Social, Health Education
R.S.E stands for Relationships and Sex Education

We follow an exciting and ambitious curriculum from Reception to Year 6. Each topic starts with a 'WOW!' experience, for example, an educational visit, visitors into school or special themed days. The children's learning is also celebrated with specific outcomes at the end of each topic. For example, we have created exhibitions, performed plays or organised sales. Teachers plan for cross curricular opportunities in English and Maths wherever possible. The year is peppered with curriculum days, such as an 'Arts' Day - "Our Wonderful World" is our most recent experience. These days provide pupils with an opportunity to examine a specific area in more detail, providing independent thinking and challenge.

Our Subject Leads work in teams so that they can share ideas and prepare and plan together for different subjects. Below are tabs for each group of subjects. For each of the subjects, we are developing our intent, implementation and impact statements to align with National Curriculum aims and with our school vision and aims.  In that way, the curriculum on offer to our Saint John's pupils is specific and relevant to each of them, ensuring that we grow their learning from their diverse roots, challenging them to reach up and reach out and preparing them for their lives in our community and beyond.


At Saint John’s CE Primary School, our vision is for all our children to flourish and grow to become healthy, independent, responsible and caring members of the community and wider society. Personal, Social, Health Education is central to the educational entitlement of all children and, as a cross curricular dimension, permeates all aspects of life in school. PSHE education is an integral part of the whole curriculum and is also taught as a discreet subject from Foundation Stage through to Year 6.

The PSHE curriculum will enable the children to develop personally and socially and will give them the tools and confidence to tackle a variety of moral, social and cultural issues. It will encourage the children to develop their voice, identity and self-esteem while giving them the confidence become active citizens in a diverse society.
