At Woodthorpe Church of England Primary School, we want to enable our children and provide them with the skills and knowledge to develop a healthy mind, body and relationship with themselves and the world around them.
More than ever before, children are exposed to different representations of relationships, with themselves and others, throughout social media and the social culture around them. At Woodthorpe, we want to enable our children to develop positive, meaningful relationships with themselves and others. Our progressive, spiral curriculum was created to ensure it meets the needs and wishes of all.
When children leave Woodthorpe, we expect them to have achieved and gained an understanding of all of the agreed national expectations. Key learning and objectives in Relationships Education are organised using the following headings:
- Families and people who care for me.
- Caring friendships.
- Respectful relationships.
- Online relationships.
- Being safe.
Children at Woodthorpe also benefit from our Personal, Social and Health Education curriculum (PSHE) and our planned programme of Collective Worship.
If you have any concerns regarding these areas of development, or require any help discussing sensitive
issues with your child, you can contact your child's teacher. Additionally, Mrs Trundell will always be available
support you or speak to your child, should you wish her to.
