Inspire, Respect, Belong

PSHE

June 24th - a day to celebrate friendships and family.

In school, children will take part in some activities including themselves, friendships, family and emotions.

Have a look at the poster below and the activity ideas sheet to do at home...

The importance of children's physical and mental health

 

PSHE is vital in a child's education. At Long Row, we aim to provide high quality PSHE through explicit lessons and 'in the moment' teaching and discussions as needs arise. Below, you will find lots of documents to provide you with information about what we're teaching and when. This includes: the PSHE unit cycles, the PSHE and RSE policies, unit overviews for the current unit being studied (*IMPROVED!), Government and Long Row specific information on the statutory requirements of RSE, our RSE parent consultation results (*NEW), a document on answering awkward questions, information on our lending library and our parent group.

 

We hope you find this information useful and it answers most of your questions. If you have any further questions or require further information about what your child will be learning, please contact their class teacher.

 

Thank you for the continued support.

Mrs North

 

KS1 and KS2

The PSHE curriculum is based around the Derbyshire County Council’s ‘PSHE Matters’ framework and is implemented on a two year cycle A and B. This academic year 2020/21 is cycle A. We also include 'Special Days' to supplement the children's learning, including: Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Anti-Bullying Day and Internet Safety.

March 2021 update: We have amended the next half term this slightly this year for year 5/6 due to missed units during Remote Learning - for Term 5 after Easter, we will be doing Drug Education and combining all our Relationships and Growing Up into one unit in Summer 2.

Relationships Changes and Growing Up

 

The units have been separated into half terms so each half term has a specific focus. 

The children are encouraged to engage in activities that promote an understanding of themselves as growing and changing individuals, and as members of a wider community, based on their own first hand experiences. These activities also encourage pupils to understand how their choices and behaviours can affect others.

 

 

Unit Overviews

 

Our next unit for Summer 2 is Relationships and Growing Up. Please see unit overviews below for objectives covered, ideas for discussion at home and optional activities.

PARENT LENDING LIBRARY

 

How it works

You or your child’s teacher may notice your child needs help with:

  • Behaviour
  • Social issues
  • Emotions
  • Anxiety or worries
  • Questions on puberty
  • Internet safety
  • Grief
  • Separation / divorce

 

We have started our collection of books, which aim to open up discussion with your child in a relaxed and informative way and/or give ideas and support. A synopsis of the books are available in the school office and online.

 

Teachers may offer a book or you can request one by speaking to your child’s teacher or the school office. The more books parents borrow; the more grant money we will receive to get more books for these and other categories.

 

Below is a link to the list and synopsis of books we have.

Parent Group                                                                                              

 

The Parent Group has a small number of parents across the year groups and meets to discuss how best to support parents in supporting their children. We have also discussed the information parents would like from school and this has developed our unit overviews.

 

We are also looking for any parents to send in names of any website and/or resources thy have found useful in talking with their child(ren) and answering any questions they have in an age-appropriate way. Please send these via email to the office with the subject 'RSE Resource ideas'

 

The group will meet with Mrs North two - three times a year to:

  • Discuss PSHE and RSE
  • Help organise the parent lending library
  • Support the production of parent guidance
  • Put forward ideas and suggestions

 

We are always looking for new members to join our group

If you would like to join please contact us via email: info@longrow.derbyshire.sch.uk putting 'Parent Support Group' in the subject box.

Please give:

-your child's name and class

-your name and email address

 

Looking forward to seeing more of you...

Mrs North
