At Hadley Wood, our aim is to teach to inspire, motivate and nurture the next generation of creative and critical thinkers. We work in partnership with parents and the community to achieve the highest standards. Our main goal is to encourage our children to be confident, capable and caring learners, who are equipped for lifelong learning. Through stimulating, safe learning environments and excellent opportunities to succeed in and out of the classroom, we encourage children’s progress and achievements.

At Hadley Wood we see Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE) as being at the centre of all that we do.  Through our curriculum, our school environment and our school ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being and help them to form and maintain worthwhile and satisfying relationships, based on respect for themselves and for others, at home, at school, at work and in the community.

The aims within the PSHE curriculum meet the needs of every individual child and through the teaching of the subject and the overarching vision of the school; learning is tailored to meet the needs of children.

Our PSHE education programme promotes the core school values and has been designed around these three main strands:

  • Confident
  • Capable
  • Caring

Our RSE programme is an integral part of our whole school PSHE education provision. We will ensure RSE is matched to the needs of our pupils by regularly reviewing the objectives and activities set, highlighting needs and assessing each child individually Our RSE programme will be taught through a range of teaching methods and interactive activities.

Policy and Curriculum Documents.

We have written a new RSE + PSHE Policy. This was open for consultation with parents between Monday 13th July and Monday 31st August 2020. Following the consultation period, governors ratified the finalised policy. The link below will take you to the finalised policy:

The curriculum map, which is linked below, outlines all of the statutory RSE objectives and illustrates where they are covered through school. The RSE objectives are required to be taught by the end of primary, therefore this curriculum map demonstrates how the teaching of these objectives will be progressive through school. They will also be covered in a sensitive, age appropriate manner.
