PSHE, Autumn 2022, Letter to parents and carers
Parents and Carers,
As a part of your child’s education at Beech Hill, we promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.
I am writing to let you know that, over the next academic year your child’s class will be taking part in lessons which will focus on the relationships and health education (RHE) aspect of this programme.
Lessons will include pupils learning about:
- Healthy relationships, including friendships.
- Growing and changing, (including puberty in Y4 - Y6.)
- Becoming more independent.
- Keeping safe.
- Developing self-esteem and confidence.
Pupils will also have opportunities to ask questions.
PSHE education is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly by the staff and governing body. Please visit the school’s website for more detail about our PSHE curriculum. All PSHE teaching takes place will take place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values.
As a school community, we are committed to working in partnership with parents; recent parental feedback has indicated that most parents continue to be highly supportive of the relationships and health education programme. If you would like to find out more or discuss any concerns do not hesitate to contact me.
Jenny Mantle (Subject lead for PSHE education)
