Mrs L Haynes (Infant School) and Mrs E March / Mr J Holmes (Junior School) are our PSHE/SRE Curriculum Leaders.
PSHE stands for Personal, Social and Health Education and is a planned programme to help children and young people develop fully as individuals and as members of families and social and economic communities. It links closely with our SMSC teaching as it helps pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain.
We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through circle time lessons, via assemblies and through other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits and activities.
SRE stands for Sex and Relationships Education which is designed to equip your child with knowledge to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships as well as preparing them for a successful adult life.
We teach SRE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject, through circle time lessons, via assemblies and through other subjects such as PHSE and Science.
Your legal rights regarding SRE can be found in our SRE policy which is here.
At Chalfont St Giles Village School we aim to enable children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society.
