At DKH Primary, we provide a wide range of opportunities for children to develop as confident, successful learners with high aspirations who are able to make positive contributions to their community and beyond. As well as ensuring both coverage and progression, the curriculum is thoughtfully designed to provide broad, balanced, deep and contextualised learning experiences.
The school is inclusive and provides a stimulating environment that meets the needs of all learners. Pupils at all levels are helped to achieve their potential irrespective of their starting points.
SMSC – Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural:
The overarching ethos of the school that encompasses personal development
PSHE – Personal Social Health Economic Education = the curriculum:
A curriculum through which children learn skills they need to have a healthy, safe and prosperous life beyond school.
RSHE – Relationship, Sex and Health Education:
A curriculum through which children explore the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up. They learn about positive relationships, growth and changes, as well as physical and mental health.
The Relationship, Sex and Health Education (RSE) curriculum became statutory in September 2020. Relationships and Sex Education supports and guides children and young people in lifelong learning about relationships, emotions, the human biology of sex and sexuality. It is compulsory for all primary school children to receive relationship education. At DKH we follow the Christopher Winter’s Project. This is a scheme of work that includes lesson plans and teaching materials for Reception to Year 6. It builds on learning from previous years and revisits topics each year to cover them in greater depth. It includes lesson material on topics such as keeping clean, families, gender differences, personal space, puberty, relationships and many other topics. The Christopher Winter’s Project resources and lessons plans are quality-assured by the PSHE Association and the DFE to best support children along their learning journey of Relationships, Sex and Health Education. Our RSE curriculum links in with our science curriculum and Years 1 to 5 will have a total of 3 lessons delivered over the course of the year while year 6 will have 4 lessons. Details of the lessons can be found on the curriculum map.
