Our PSHCE curriculum follows the statutory Statutory guidance for PSHCE.
The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. Our school value of Respect, Excellence, Determination, Responsibility, Opportunity, Support for Others and Equality underpin our school life and therefore are at the heart of our PSHE programme. Alongside these values, we develop British Values and also the character education features of Resilience, Empathy, Self-Awareness, Passion, Excellence, Communication and Teamwork. Our aspiration is that our children will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally, culturally and socially. It will give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. As a Rights respecting School we provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about their 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.
Our PSHE Curriculum is delivered in a number of strategic ways, but the most important way that the values of the PSHE curriculum is developed is through the everyday life of the school. The school values are shared, encouraged and celebrated through all aspects of our work in school. Discrete PSHE lessons take place weekly in class to each year group however some of the content will be addressed through:
- assemblies both whole school and as phases
- one off events such as Remembrance Service, Harvest, Comic Relief events
- our character education programme ‘Commando Joe’ Commando Joe LTP
Our curriculum plan is as follows:

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) is delivered through our PSHE curriculum, supported by the relevant science curriculum. In developing our Red Rose RSE policy and curriculum we conducted a year long consultation with all stakeholders (pupils, staff, parents and governors) to ensure our RSE curriculum was appropriate for our children today. Whilst we predominantly follow the ‘Jigsaw Curriculum plan’, we have made changes to some of the content and progression to ensure it meets the needs of our pupils. Please see the Relationships and Changing Me maps above to access the specific content taught.
At Red Rose we place a strong emphasis on character education. Whilst a significant aspect of this is developed through everyday life we also dedicate a 45 minute session each week to developing character education through our Commando Joe programme. The programme helps to develop: Resilience, Empathy, Self-Awareness, Passion, Excellence, Communication and Teamwork. This is led by Ryan Blake from the NUFC Foundation using some funding from our Sports Premium spend.
