Below is an outline of how the academy intends to meet the new statutory regulations for the revised Health Education and Relationships Education curriculum. This is not statutory until September 2020.
The academy will be consulting with parents before the implementation of this.
At Crowle Primary Academy we intend to deliver the RSE curriculum through a number of different ways including our PSHE scheme of work (see PSHE progression document), Gooseberry Planet Online Safety scheme of work, RE scheme of work (see RE progression document), Mental Health and wellbeing work and our Science curriculum (see Science curriculum progression document).
To support us to deliver the RSE curriculum we intend to continue to work alongside Big Talk Education who deliver their Growing Up Safe: Whole School Approach (GUS) programme annually in school.
GUS is a spiral curriculum therefore pupils will see the same topics throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning. Consequently, the topics included for Nursery and KS1 will be included right the way up until year 6.
Table 1 shows the GUS curriculum and how it will relate to the topic areas included within the Department for Education’s RSE Guidance 2018, by the school years in which it is introduced. These topics repeat each year.
Table 2 shows how our academy then intends to deliver these themes through other subjects/ activities.
Please note that the statutory RSE guidance states that children must know each of the elements of the curriculum by the time they leave primary school at the end of year 6, for this reason the GUS programme each year builds on the children’s knowledge from previous years.
