Information regarding Personal, Social, Health Education
At Brontë House, we use Jigsaw, the mindful approach to PSHE, as our scheme of work to teach PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) across the school. The programme consists of 6 half-term units, each with 6 lessons: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me.
In the second half of the Summer Term, we will be teaching ‘Changing Me’. This helps children learn to cope positively with all sorts of change. In Key Stage 2, they will learn about safe/unsafe touch and puberty in; Key Stage 1, we introduce scientific terminology for body parts, including genitalia. This is partly for safeguarding reasons and also to lay the foundations for learning about puberty later.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the statutory requirements placed on schools, and what we plan to teach when, for this topic in PSHE this term. The government statutory guidance gives parents the right to request to withdraw their child from Sex Education, and this letter explains more about what Sex Education is and how you can find out more about this if you wish to.
