Find out how we teach PSHE & SEAL at Alexandra Primary School.
PSCHE stands for Personal, Social, Citizenship and Health Education. At Alexandra we believe that this is one of the most important aspects of a child’s school life and life beyond. We cover themes such as living the in the wider world, having positive relationships and health and wellbeing from Y1-6 at an age appropriate level.
All classes have PSCHE lessons every week. Lessons are based around discussion, drama, role play and mutual respect. Learning is captured through photos, drawings and short writing activities in a whole class floor book which is kept on display in the classroom to be referred to throughout the week.
Our goal is to ensure that every child at Alexandra Primary School becomes and active responsible citizen who knows and understand that they have a voice and how to use it effectively and with respect.
We are a Telling School. We won’t walk past if we see any bullying, we will help and report it to an adult.
Anti Bullying week is taking place in November 2018. The theme for this year’s Anti-Bullying Week is to choose respect over bullying.
The aims of this week are to support our children, school staff, parents and other professionals who work with children to understand:
The definition of respect
That bullying is a behaviour choice
That we can respectfully disagree with each other i.e. we don’t have to be best friends or always agree with each other but we do have to respect each other
That we all need to choose to respect each other both face to face and online
Relationship and Sex Education
We teach RSE using the Christopher Winter curriculum resources. We focus on RSE during Health, fun and fitness week in the summer term. We cover topics such as different families, our bodies, how to keep our bodies clean, personal space, what positive relationships look like as well as the scientific definitions of human reproduction. See separate policy.
We celebrate Families’ Week in May. Each year we pick a different theme and children consider different aspects of family life. We have a number of different family structures in our community and all deserve to be celebrated.
