Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
At St Stephen’s CE Primary School we believe that inclusive education means providing all pupils with appropriate education and support alongside their peers. the curriculum is all the planned activities that the school organises in order to promote learning, personal growth and development.
If you would like to discuss your SEND requirements in detail please contact the school to arrange an appointment.
PSHE & RSE
Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way. As a result of this, the government have made Relationships Education compulsory in all primary schools in England from September 2020.
At St. Stephen’s C.E. Primary School, PSHE has always been firmly embedded into provision, providing the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendships, in all contexts, including online. The embracing of LGBT relationships are explored, in an age appropriate way, across all year groups to develop tolerance and respect.
As you will already know, we have a succinct and progressive Relationships and Sex Education scheme in place, which has been implemented for many years: we are committed to ensuring that our children cherish themselves and others as unique and wonderfully made individuals. ‘Lucinda and Godfrey’ lead our RSE programme brilliantly in school, with children ‘growing up’ with the two characters as they develop and mature, tackling all of life’s challenges.
In addition to this already systematic programme, we are enriching our provision further with the implementation of Twinkl Life: Twinkl Life provides a rigorous programme for all three components of the PSHE framework – living in the wider world, relationships and health and wellbeing.
An overview of Twinkl Life has been added to our school website for you to view or paper copies are available from the school office. If you have any comments, queries or questions, please contact school.
