PSHE at St Peter’s is designed to give our children the opportunity to develop the knowledge and attributes to support their own, and others’ well-being. We aim to support our children to become successful and happy adults who make a meaningful contribution to society. Our lessons shape our children into individuals that are able to deal with moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. It provides experiences and opportunity to discuss scenarios that may arise in their young lives and it gives them the strategies to be able to overcome such situations. Our PSHE curriculum provides the understanding and knowledge to help our children flourish into responsible, valued members of the community.


The aims of relationships and sex education (RSE) at our school are to:

· Provide a framework in which sensitive discussions can take place

· Prepare pupils for puberty, and give them an understanding of sexual development and the importance of health and hygiene

· Help pupils develop feelings of self-respect, confidence and empathy

· Create a positive culture around issues of sexuality and relationships

· Teach pupils the correct vocabulary to describe themselves and their bodies.

The school follows the Curriculum 4 Life PSHE Support for Schools from Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and Public Health South Tees.
