We follow the ‘SEAL’ education programme. Although PSHE is non-statutory there is an expectation outlined in the introduction to the national curriculum that all schools should teach PSHE. Values education is also a theme that runs through every project. When children leave Blackmoor Park Infant School they should be equipped with the full range of skills that enables them to become lifelong learners. Through our unique approach of teaching and living out Christian Values, children are also equipped with the social skills and understanding to become good citizens in the future.
Relationships and Health Education
Children are taught about what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who the people are who can support them. From the beginning our children are taught how to take turns, how to treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect, the importance of honesty and truthfulness, permission seeking and giving, and the concept of personal privacy. Establishing personal space and boundaries, showing respect and understanding the differences between appropriate and inappropriate or unsafe physical, and other, contact. Respect for others is taught in an age-appropriate way, in terms of understanding one’s own and others’ boundaries in play, in negotiations about space, toys, books, resources and so on.
