What PSHE and RSE looks like at St. Laurence

At St Laurence in Thanet CE Junior Academy, we regard PSHE as an important, integral component of the whole curriculum and we strongly promote our values through our day to day dealings with children and adults. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, ensuring that it:

  • Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children and of society.
  • Prepares our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they already face and for adult life.
  • Provides information about keeping healthy and safe, mentally, emotionally and physically.
  • Encourages our children to understand how all actions have consequences and how they can make informed choices to help themselves, others and the environment.

Our personal, social and health education (PSHE) programme runs alongside our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Policy. It promotes children’s personal, social and economic development, as well as their health and wellbeing. It helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens. Children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of our school and community.
