RSE Parental Consultation
From September 2020, all primary schools are required by the government to teach Relationships and Health Education as part of their Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) curriculum. You can find further government guidance relating to this in the link below.
It has been created to help children have positive and safe relationships with anyone they might come into contact with including family, friends, and people online.
It will help children make good decisions about their health and wellbeing and enable them to know how and where to seek support if any health issues arise for themselves or others.
If you would like more information about statutory Relationships and Health Education, please click here to read the government guide “Understanding Relationships and Health Education in your child’s primary school: a guide for parents”.
You can read a draft copy of our Relationships Education, and Health Education Policy here.
PSHE Letter to Parents, December 2020
This letter, to parents of children at Oldfield Park Junior School, explains the new statutory changes to the PSHE curriculum and how we are sharing these with you. It can be found here.
At OPJS we use the Jigsaw Scheme of Work to deliver the RSE content, which is accredited by the PSHE Association. Jigsaw is designed as a whole-school approach, offering a spiral curriculum with year groups working on the same puzzle theme at the same time. Jigsaw brings together the compulsory aspects of Relationships and Health Education, alongside broader PSHE skills in emotional literacy, mindfulness and social skills. We have selected this scheme because we feel it fulfils the needs of our pupils and fits with our core school values, as well as meeting our obligations to provide statutory Relationships and Health Education,
