PSHE

At St. Osmund’s, we are followers of Jesus who seek to show love, care and respect for everyone. We meet every challenge by growing and learning together. We take pride in caring for others.

Our Mission statement is:

Love for God, love for each other and love for learning.

 Our ethos is based upon our Catholic Church’s teachings. This is underpinned in everything we do at St. Osmund’s, especially supporting our children to meet their potential and to feel inspired. Our PSHE scheme of work underpins our ethos and has been developed along side the pupils of the school; this has been the focus this academic year. We have explored what is important to the children in school to explore the skills needed to develop PSHE. This scheme will be uploaded onto the website soon.

PSHE Scheme of Work Overview

We have also engaged with events and organisations to support the PSHE teaching at St. Osmund's. See the details of everything we have done so far below:

 

Friendship Week

 

Internet Safety Day

 

The Life Bus

Friendship Week - see below what each year group did to show their understanding of being a good friend. Across the school, the children engaged with what makes a good friend, what bullying is and how to stop it. As well as the skills needed to help others and to take care of each other.

Relationships and Sex Education (RSE)

The teaching of Relationship and Sex Education (RSE) requires a holistic approach involving three key factors:

  • Support of the physical, emotional and development of all our pupils.
  • Confirmation to the teaching of our Catholic Church.
  • The ethos of our school’s mission statement with love being the key aspect in all teaching and learning.  These three factors are also reflected in the RSE guidelines of the Clifton Diocese: 
  • The dignity and worth of each person made in the image of God – “Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary" (inaugural address of Pope Benedict XV1).
  • We are called to love and be loved – “God is love and whoever lives in love lives in God.” 1 John 4:16.
  • We are called to form relationships to live in community – “wherever two or more of you are gathered in my name there I am.” Mt 18:20. 

Children in our school come from many different backgrounds with a diverse range of life experiences. We aim to support our children to develop into well rounded adults, every child to be capable of whole and wholesome relationships. Above all, as a school we need to help them understand that they are loved by God and capable of loving.

At St. Osmund's we teach the 'Journey in Love' scheme of work, which follows the guidelines set out by the Clifton Diocese. Below is a link to the overview of the RSE scheme of work which identifies what each year group covers. There is also a link to the policy for your reference.
