Our intention is that when children leave Thorpe Acre Junior School, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society while being equipped with the skills and strategies to lead healthy, safe and responsible lives. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these. 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. We have a strong emphasis on building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health through the delivery of a programme of engaging and relevant PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) within a whole school approach.
We aim to continue to build a PSHE curriculum that incorporates the understanding of RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) so that children know more, remember more and understand more. As a result, children will know how to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives. Through the implementation of an RSE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum, we aim to enable pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives in a safe environment.
