Wellbeing 3 I's Document
At Fawbert and Barnard’s, our PSHE and RSE curriculum falls under our ‘Wellbeing’ umbrella. It enables our children to become healthy, independent, safe and responsible members of society. Children are taught about various risks; how to cope with some of them, when it’s important to get help and who they can safely ask for help. Children will learn the correct terminology for private body parts and that their body belongs only to them. They will learn how to identify and develop positive, healthy relationships appropriate for each stage in their life.
Throughout the curriculum, children learn an awareness of how to lead a healthy lifestyle, mentally and physically. We provide the children the opportunities to develop their emotional intelligence; how to understand and describe a range of feelings, know that all feelings are natural and ways to cope with uncomfortable feelings.
We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
Children will learn about through the areas of ‘Health’, ‘Relationships’ and ‘Living in the Wider World’. Children will learn according to their developmental age; they will revisit and build on the areas as they grow with age appropriate content at each stage. Teachers use key strategies to ensure children feel safe to participate in lessons, set up safe boundaries for discussions and provide ways to ask sensitive questions. Children are able to apply their knowledge through role play and discussions about scenarios.
At Fawbert and Barnard’s, we believe that it is important to respond to the needs of individuals as well as groups and classes in Wellbeing lessons, as well as coverage of the PSHE and RSE curriculum.
Our Wellbeing curriculum includes opportunities to link British Values and Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural aspects into the curriculum.
Children will develop a moral approach to decision making about things that effect themselves, people close to them and the wider community.
Children will, in a range of situations:
- have respect for themselves and others
- have safe relationships and understand the importance of consent
- know how to keep themselves safe and how to get help
Children will develop an understanding of:
- their emotions, how their actions impact others and strategies to help regulate their emotions
- how people can be the same and different
- how to lead a healthy lifestyle
