Our PSHE (Personal, social and Health Education) curriculum has been written by the PSHE Association and adapted for our school context. It is a spiral curriculum so the themes are repeated every year. The themes are: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. These themes are timeless and are intended to support the children to navigate their way through times of rapid change, opportunities and challenges.
The curriculum provides the opportunity for pupils to explore their attitudes, values and beliefs about these themes and to develop the skills, language and strategies necessary to manage themselves in this ever-changing world.
The 6 Ls of Latchmere: learning, local community, laughter, loyalty, love and leadership also provide a foundation for our school identity and culture; not only for the children but for our staff too. We celebrate the 6Ls in assemblies, daily lessons, on the playground, in circle time and in many other aspects of school life.
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) sits within our PSHE curriculum. These ideas are mainly covered in Years 5 and 6.
