Implementation

Our Relationships and Health Education Curriculum

Our school aims to be a loving, inclusive family, where our core Christian values of love, trust and truth are recognised and developed.  Relationships and Health Education and Sex Education is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils and involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. Relationships and Health Education involves a combination of sharing information, exploring issues and values.

 

In Relationships and Health Education and Sex Education (R.H.S.E), we follow the statutory requirements for Relationships Education and Health Education, which aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Understand what a relationship is, what friendship is, what family means and who the people are who can support them.
  • Understand how to take turns, treat each other with kindness, consideration and respect, the importance of honesty and truthfulness, permission seeking and giving, and the concept of personal privacy.
  • Understand what a positive and healthy relationship looks like and what a less positive relationship may look like, including understanding how to recognise and report concerns.
  • Develop personal attributes including honesty, integrity, courage, humility, kindness, generosity, trustworthiness and a sense of justice.
  • Understand the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing.
  • Have the skills they need to make good decisions about their own health and wellbeing (both physical and mental), including understanding what benefits health and wellbeing (e.g. daily exercise, good nutrition, sufficient sleep, hobbies, interests, community participation).
  • Have the skills they need to understand and talk about their feelings and emotions.
  • Have the skills they need to self-control, self-regulate and persevere.
  • Understand how to apply these principles and stay safe and healthy in an online world.
  • Know about internet safety.

HeartSmart

We are a HeartSmart School. HeartSmart is a creative approach that we use to build character, emotional health and resilience. Equipping children with foundational principles and skills that will improve mental health and relationships and academic achievement. At Manor, we want everyone to know that they are loved, cared for and valued. We recognise the value of educating the heart alongside educating the mind. Through the story of Boris the Robot, children learn to be HeartSmart. 

Our High 5 Heartsmart principles are displayed around the school and in every classroom. They are referred to regularly.
Get Heartsmart 
Wholeheartedness. Learn what it is to be HeartSmart and how we can Power ON to love ourselves and others well. 

The life of our heart affects the whole of our life. What we put into our hearts will affect what we put our hearts into. Our lives will be greater or worse, more courageous or more fearful as a result of what’s in our heart.  Therefore, learning how and when to lead and guard our hearts is essential for resilient living.  But we can’t be resilient if we’re not first responsible. We can’t choose well if we don’t yet understand the relationship between the choices we make and the consequences we experience as a result.  Get HeartSmart is about recognising that we have the power to choose well. It comes first because it sets the context for the HeartSmart High Five. It’s like a bookshelf that the five principles rest on. Get HeartSmart is about self-mastery and taking ownership of the decisions we make, which is foundational to becoming a powerful person.
Let Love In
Self-worth. Learn how to love and value yourself well. 

You’re important, you matter, you’re one in a million and above all you’re loved. These are messages that we all need to hear, believe and remember – because sometimes we forget. The healthier our internal dialogue, the greater our sense of worth which is the cornerstone of character and resilience. 
Don’t Forget to Let Love In helps us grow in self-compassion. The ability to receive or reject love in our lives defines us. Our actions, beliefs and very essence is shaped by our experience of it. Our hearts are made strong because of it. So in partnering with love, we partner with a strength that’s stronger than any challenge life might throw at us. Although it can be a challenge to receive it, love never fails. 
Too Much Selfie Isn’t Healthy
Empathy. Exploring the importance of others and how to love them well.
 
Too Much Selfie isn’t Healthy is about working well with others, about being a good listener and understanding that life is more about we than me. Love without action isn’t love, it’s a thought. By contributing to the lives of others we find fulfilment for ourselves and learn that Too Much Selfie isn’t Healthy! 
Don’t Rub it in Rub it Out. 
Forgiveness
. Learn how to process negative emotions, disappointment and hurt.
Don’t Rub it in, Rub it Out means choosing to forgive. Everyone makes mistakes. Don’t demand perfection, instead celebrate progress, that’s what love does.  
Fake is a Mistake
Identity. Learn how to be authentically you and how to communicate truth well. 

Fake is a Mistake is about having the courage to tell the truth when we need to but it’s also about knowing that we’re enough as we are.  Having the courage to tell the truth, to communicate our boundaries and to share our vulnerabilities appropriately are at the core of what it means to be powerful.
No Way Through Isn’t True
Grit. Learn how to develop and maintain a growth mindset.

 ‘No Way Through’ isn’t True!  teaches children that there’s always a solution and if you believe that, you’ll find it, you’ll know what you need to do.  That’s why hope is so important.  It keeps us working towards the solution that is always out there. Hope is an essential part of what it means to be human. When you believe there is a way through you’ll search for it.

Milo's Money
We use Milo's money to teach children about money and finance. By developing children's financial literacy, we want them to learn about the value of money. In the storybook, Milo completes a painting job for his uncle and earns some money. He learns what money is and begins to consider the many and varied options he has when it comes to using his new coins! To find out more about Milo's money, visit https://milosmoney.co.uk/
