Relationships Education

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

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. The files below include a list of the picture books covered within each year group.

Below is Buglawton Primary School's proposed PSHE and Relationships Education Curriculum Overview and the Curriculum Statement. 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 Miss McAvoy: [email protected] 

Debt Aware - Financial Education 

DebtAware is a financial education programme aimed primarily at 9-13 year olds.

DebtAware is part of Debt Advice Foundation, a registered national debt advice and education charity.

The programme was originally developed in partnership with staff and students at Southlands High School, Chorley, but is now delivered in hundreds of primary schools across England and Scotland.

DebtAware has a series of core teaching resources based around The Money Diaries, all of which were written and illustrated by secondary school students and form the heart of DebtAware’s money management lessons.

The key lesssons are delivered to pupils by the DebtAware team, then selected classmates known as Money Mentors teach and mark three follow-up tasks. One of the most enjoyable aspects of the programme is this peer-to-peer aspect.
