EPR & PHSE
(Education in Personal Relationships and Personal, Social and Health Education)
This is an important area of our curriculum which aims to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead healthy lives and be responsible citizens. It forms an integral part of a child’s development, and is brought into our cross-curricular activities and discussions in such a way as to ensure that knowledge and understanding of oneself and others is developed.
The children grow more confident about aspects of their own lives, their self-esteem, their health, their beliefs, their relationships with others, and their ability to express their feelings and to cope with life’s problems. We encourage pupils to participate in these discussions and activities, which lead to a greater awareness of their social and moral responsibilities.

EPR & PHSE Policy
Drugs education forms a programmed part of our EPR lessons in Year 6. Relationship and sex education (RSE) is also part of the curriculum and takes the form of a programme with a moral framework related to the age and maturity of the children taught. The programme we follow is one approved by the Diocese and parents are invited in to view the materials before the children in Years 5 and 6 are taught the subject in the summer term.
