PSHE/RSE at Impact:
All students at Impact have access to timetabled PSHE/RSE lessons on a weekly basis.
Impact’s PSHE/RSE curriculum aims to equip students with essential skills for life; it intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to protect and enhance their wellbeing.
Students will learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in society around them.
The three themes we focus on are Living In the Wider World, Relationships and Health and Wellbeing. Impact is a member of the PSHE Association and follow their guidance in line with the DfE key documentation.
The PSHE/RSE topics are delivered on a weekly basis. Each session is timetabled. KS3 receive two lessons per week. KS4 receive one lesson per week. Both Key Stages take part in drop down days in accordance with nationally recognised events such as Comic Relief, Children In Need, Mental Health Day etc.
The topics are delivered in a creative manner, where possible, using a variety of approaches. Topics are evidenced using class group scrap books.
Impact’s PSHE/RSE curriculum enables students to develop their vocabulary and confidence needed to clearly articulate their thoughts and feelings in a climate of openness, trust and respect, and know when and how they can seek the support of others.
Successful PSHE education can have a positive impact on the whole child including their academic development and progress. It also impacts on our most vulnerable students and helps us to recognise barriers, concerns, issues that may not have been prevalent before the teaching.
Some of the topics covered can be very sensitive subjects. If you have any questions regarding our RSE/PSHE curriculum then please contact Jayne Whitehouse on the school number.
