Stratton Primary School’s goal is to nurture our children to grow into healthy, secure, independent, caring and considerate citizens, able to effectively care for themselves and the world around them and to prepare them for the challenges and opportunities of a changing world. The health, well-being and happiness of pupils and staff is at the heart of everything we do (see also the Relationships and Health Education Policy). We aim to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical health of our children and their families whilst also upholding fundamental British Values and helping to build pupils resilience to radicalisation (see SMSC policy).
Stratton Primary School follows the programmes of study for PSHE as set out in the National Curriculum 2014 which states that:
Schools use their PSHE education programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle. (DFE 2013).
We also follow the statutory guidance for Relationships and Health Education 2019 to guide our PSHE curriculum (see RHE policy).
