PSHE

About

 

PSHE is vital in a child's education. 

 

At Long Row, we are revitalising how PSHE is taught, communicated and supported in our school.

 

We have a new scheme called 'PSHE Matters' which is developed by the council and encompasses the Government's expectations for children's mental health, emotional, relationship and social education (and much more!)

 

Our current aim is to communicate with parents what we are talking about in school and to develop a Parent Group and a NEW Lending Library...(see below for more information) 

 

Here you will find information on our PSHE units and a seperate document relating to our Relationships and Sex Education objectives including guidance on how to support your child at home.

 

Please click the links below to find out more about PSHE, RSE and how to keep your children safe and talk to them about different areas.

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.

 

 

Relationship and Sex Education

Visiting sites such as Family Lives is a good start point – there are lots of videos supporting various topics – you can access Parents TV through here as it splits it up into age ranges and topics for you. Click here to access the site: Family lives – Parent TV 

NEW FOR THIS YEAR! 

PARENT LENDING LIBRARY

 

We have been fortunate to secure a £1000 grant from the Derbyshire County Council.  This grant is funding books for you to borrow to read and discuss with your child. 

 

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.
