The Department for Education has introduced compulsory Relationships Education and Health Education for Primary pupils from the September 2020, due to the COVID 19 pandemic schools have been given until Summer term 2021 to have this curriculum in place.
It is our aim at Mount Pleasant Primary School to support our pupils to be happy, healthy and safe. We aim to provide our children with the information needed to develop healthy, nurturing relationships through their childhood and into adult life.
Relationships Education at Mount Pleasant will start with family and friends, how to treat each other with kindness, and recognising the difference between online and offline friendships. We will support our pupils to develop respect for others and for difference.
During the Autumn Term 2020, in consultation with our parents, staff, children and governors we have developed a Curriculum Overview for each year group and ensure Relationships Education and Health Education forms part of our ‘Darwin Growth Curriculum’.
As part of this process, the school consulted with parents, staff, children and governors that helped to inform our schools’ decisions on when and how certain content is covered.
This consultation enabled us to reach a general consensus and we made adjustments to our policy and curriculum based on this feedback.
To help you understand the curriculum requirements, please look at the information below which provides more detail.
