 At Newfield Park PSHE is at the heart of all we do and is securely embedded in our ethos. It underpins everything we do. PSHE runs through not only a scheme of work but also assemblies, classroom management and pupil voice throughout school. We also successfully support our local and global communities.  We aim to inspire all children to achieve their full potential within a fully inclusive and Rights Respecting Curriculum.  We believe the importance of PSHE and Citizenship is to:

  • Provide a supportive environment for learning
  • Raise pupil’s self-esteem, confidence and responsibility
  • Reduce the chances that the pupils’ education will be interrupted or impaired, for example by fear of bullying,
  • Enable pupils to play an active role as members of a democratic society
  • Promote positive attitudes
  • Develop pupils who engage in being active global citizens
  • Create a Rights Respecting ethos

The RSE curriculum has been created in line with Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Guidance, (Department for Education 2019). The documentation states that it is the duty of schools under the Equality Act 2010 to ensure no pupils experience discrimination or harassment.  The Act uses the term protected characteristics to refer to aspects of a persons identity protected by law. Treating a person less favourably because they have one or more of these characteristics would be unlawful. Protected Characteristics include Age, Disability, Sex, Gender Reassignment, Race, Religion or Belief, Sexual Orientation, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity.

Pupil voice is important to us here at Newfield Park and the children, throughout their time at Newfield have a variety of opportunities to undertake these roles. We have School Council, Maths Council, Eco Council, Globetrotters, Science Ambassadors and Anti-bullying Amabassadors.
