Relationships Education will put in place the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online. Your child will be taught what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who can support them.
In an age-appropriate way, Buglawton Primary School will cover how to treat each other with kindness, consideration, and respect.
By the end of primary school, pupils will have been taught content on:
• families and people who care for me
• caring friendships
• respectful relationships
• online relationships
• being safe
You can find further detail by searching ‘relationships and health education’ on GOV.UK.
No Outsiders at Buglawton Primary School
There are no outsiders in our school; to quote the South African social rights activist Desmond Tutu (2004), ‘Everyone is an insider, no matter their beliefs, whatever their colour, gender or sexuality’ (No Outsiders Project Team, 2010, ix).
We use the book, ‘No Outsiders in Our School: Teaching the Equality Act in Primary Schools’ by Andrew Moffat.
The No Outsiders resource includes lesson plans based on children’s picture books. The class discussion is child-led and offers opportunity for the children to make observations and consider the simple messages in the text, which link to the Equality Act in an age appropriate way.
Below is Buglawton Primary School's proposed Relationships PSHE Curriculum Overview for 2020-21. Resources to support learning will be from sites such as NSPCC to ensure that pupils are receiving the latest professional information.
Parents are invited to read through the overview of units. If there are any questions or feedback comments, then please email Mr. Jervis: firstname.lastname@example.org
