Physical, social and health (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education and the National Curriculum states that all schools should teach PSHE as part of good practice.

At Bracken Leas, PSHE is taught discretely, through the use of the SEAL resources. Assemblies are also based on these and other themes. The SEAL resources used in school, as well as whole school and key stage assemblies, equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.

Bracken Leas also uses PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

This aspect of the curriculum is supported within Bracken Leas in many ways. We have a school council, House system with house captains and Eco Reps. In addition, Twice per year a ‘student voice’ survey is carried out within school to allow children to express their feelings on their learning, subjects and friendship issues. These results are analysed and feedback given to staff and pupils in order to try and address any issues that arise, or to improve on current successes.

Sex & Relationships Education

Sex and Relationships Education is best discussed in the context of a happy home with loving parents. We recognise that not all parents are comfortable with this and some may find it difficult to fully answer their children’s questions about sexual matters.

With this in mind we teach children about:

  • the physical development of their bodies as they grow into adults;
  • the way humans reproduce;
  • respect for their own bodies and the importance of sexual activity as part of a committed, long-term, and loving relationship;
  • the importance of family life;
  • moral questions;
  • relationship issues;
  • respect for the views of other people;

These are tackled with an increasing degree of age appropriate detail.

Parents have the right to withdraw their child from all or part of the sex education programme that we teach in our school. If a parent wishes their child to be withdrawn from sex education lessons, they should discuss this with the headteacher, and make it clear which aspects of the programme they do not wish their child to participate in. The school always complies with the wishes of parents in this regard.
