Relationships, Health and Sex Education
We want Relationships, Health and Sex Education (RHSE) to lie at the heart of our curriculum, to closely meet the needs of our children. We follow a whole school progression of themes across the school, which are both taught explicitly and as part of the year group themes for that term. As part of our RHSE curriculum financial education is taught throughout all year groups based on the ‘Lifesavers’ programme. This is an innovative, values-based financial literacy programme that gives children the knowledge, skills and attitudes to manage their money wisely.
Our values-based approach to financial education explores what it means to be wise, generous, just and thankful for our money recognising that attitudes are as important as knowledge and skills in shaping financial behaviour. Through the Lifesavers programme we run our own savings bank overseen by staff but run by year 6 pupils. The rationale for this is a whole community approach that involves parents, credit unions and others by helping children learn about money.
