Personal, Social, Health Education Aims
Rosary children will become healthier, more independent and more responsible members of modern society. Pupils will be encouraged to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. We teach them in simple ways how society is organised and governed and the process of democracy. Children will recognise their rights and responsibilities. They learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse and multicultural society.
PSHE and Citizenship at the Rosary Catholic Primary School.
There are six units covered in PSHE and Citizenship over the academic year. These are Rights and responsibilities (Citizenship focus), money, health, feelings and friendship, safety and risk and identity. The overview can be found below. Each week, PSHE lessons alternate with Relationships and Health Education (RHE). Our school councillors meet regularly with Mr Perkins to share pupil voice.
Promoting Fundamental British Values.
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure Rosary pupils leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.
Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law.
The Fundamental Values are:
rule of law
tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
At The Rosary Catholic Primary School we:
Implement democracy through electing our eco-council, school council and faith council representatives
Implement the rule of law by understanding that every action has both a negative or positive, leads to a consequence which is both negative or positive
Celebrate Individual liberty by providing opportunities for children to make choices and therefore gain independence within their thinking. We also hold regular school council meetings
Promote mutual respect by following our School and Class Rules
Understand and promote tolerance through learning about different cultures and celebrating and learning from our similarities as well as differences.
