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 your continued support.

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 2021/22 is cycle B. We also include 'Special Days' to supplement the children's learning, including: Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Anti-Bullying Day and Internet Safety.

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.
Our first unit for Autumn 2021 is Being Responsible. Please see unit overviews below for objectives covered, ideas for discussion at home and optional activities.
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

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.
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.
