At FreshSteps we have structured our PSHE learning to support our children in developing into strong-minded individuals.
We provide our students with opportunities to learn about the school and British Values as well as rights and responsibilities; we aim to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society, where we accept each other differences and abilities. Our pupils are also encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
The pupils at FreshSteps are encouraged to take part in numerous class discussions and to share their honest opinions on the topics of our PSHE lessons, without judgment. The ability to openly express themselves and discuss topics will give them the skills they need to grow up as healthy individuals who can make informed decisions about their lives.
Our Relationships and Sex Education enables our children to learn how to be safe (including online), and to understand and develop healthy relationships, both, now and in their future lives. RSE is also a key as they learn about physical, mental, and emotional health.
At the primary level, parents have the right to withdraw their child from sex education but not from statutory Relationships Education or Health Education.
