Relationships Education & Social, Personal, Emotional, Citizenship & Trust
A bespoke RESPECT curriculum has been developed in response to promoting our pupils' spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development. Through our RESPECT curriculum, we equip pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes necessary to make informed decisions about their well-being, health, safety and relationships. Each year group learns about pertinent issues linking to our core school values:
We deliver a curriculum built on theme-based learning to enthuse and engage our children. Through our inclusive RESPECT curriculum, we aim to:
• Prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
• Give pupils the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their health and well-being.
• Support pupils’ skills to recognise positive, healthy and respectful relationships.
• Help to safeguard pupils so they can find and access help and support.
• Teach pupils’ tolerance, the importance of equality and respect for diversity.
• Develop pupils’ self-respect and self-worth, confidence and empathy.
Within the RESPECT curriculum, and covertly across many areas of school, we seek to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. We aim to enable pupils to:
- understand how they can influence decision-making through the process of democracy
- appreciate that living under the rule of law protects individual citizens and is essential for well-being and safety
- understand that the freedom to choose and hold other faiths and beliefs is protected in law
- accept that other people may have different faiths or beliefs and this should be accepted and tolerated
- understand the importance of identifying and dealing with discrimination
