At Whiteheath Junior School, we believe that P.S.H.E (Personal, Social and Health Education) enables our children to become responsible, healthy and independent members of society. Through lessons, events and a variety of activities, our school will help children to understand how they are developing personally and socially, so they can approach issues (moral, social and cultural) that affect them in their everyday lives with sensitivity and positivity. Our children will recognise their importance in a diverse and multi-cultural society and learn about their rights and responsibilities in school and the wider community.
Our school also has a responsibility to work with parents in preparing children for their lives now and in the future. Therefore, an appropriate and responsible Relationship and Sex Education, as an integral part of PSHE, is an essential element in that preparation. The school is sensitive to the fact that children’s environments may differ but seeks to place the RSE programme within the context of a secure and loving environment where faithfulness, love and commitment are promoted.
