Iver Village Junior School aims to promote personal wellbeing and development through a comprehensive curriculum. We aim to give children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives, both now and in the future.
As you may be aware, from September 2020 the Department for Education is making Relationships and Health Education (Primary) and Relationships Sex Education and Health Education compulsory in all schools.
What does the new guidance mean?
The new guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, it will give children the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and will help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
All sessions will be age-appropriate and meet the needs of all children in the class.
How will this be delivered?
This guidance will form part of our school’s PSHE education programme which is taught throughout the school in every year group and is monitored and reviewed regularly.
For more detail about our PSHE curriculum offer, please visit the school’s website: https://www.ivervillage-jun.bucks.sch.uk/pshe.html
On our website you will be able to see the details of the curriculum for each year group. As part of the introduction of the PSHE curriculum schools have been asked to consult with parents. In usual circumstances we would hold a meeting for parents to talk to us about the curriculum however, with the need for social distancing, this is not possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school office and we will get back to you.
