2 Mission Statement As a school we are committed to the welfare of the individual child spiritually, socially, morally, psychologically, physically as well as academically. As a Catholic School we are responsible for teaching the whole child in the Word of Christ as told in the Gospels. Background Information St John the Baptist R.C. Primary School is situated in the Diocese of Plymouth and is maintained by Devon Local Education Authority. We are a small Catholic Primary School. We have a mixed catchment area with a large percentage of children being drawn from the nearby Townstal estate. This area is highlighted as having one of the highest levels of deprivation in the South Hams area. We have a high number of children with special Educational Needs. The school is set within a very supportive community. This includes an active PTA, which involves itself mostly in fund-raising and supporting the teachers. Aims of PSHE and Citizenship St John the Baptist RC School believes in developing children's notions of selfesteem and worth recognising that we are created in God's image. We feel that it is of the upmost importance to us as a Catholic school that our children feel that they belong. We want them to feel good and want to do their best. We aim to have children who get on with each other and are able to be able to say what they feel and understand each other. Our children need to feel safe and loved and to be able to take risks with their learning. PSHE and Citizenship in this school will be developmental and a foundation for further development in the secondary school. Legal Requirements of PSHE and Citizenship PSHE and Citizenship will contribute to the requirements of section 1 of the 1988 Education Reform Act and the school curriculum should be one which: promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and in society; and prepares such pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life' The Children s Act, 2004, sets out the following objectives under the Every Child Matters PSHE contributes to the following objectives.

6 Disclosure or suspicion of possible abuse St John the Baptist R.C. Primary School has a Child Protection policy and procedure for dealing with child sexual abuse based on the LA guidelines and recommendations. This policy is available on request. Answering difficult questions Sometimes an individual child will ask an explicit or difficult question in the classroom. Teachers have been informed that they do not have to answer questions of this nature directly, they can be addressed individually later. The governors support individual teachers in using their discretion and skill in these situations and can refer to the deputy head if they are concerned. Provision for pubertal pupils Sanitary Disposal Units are located in the cubicles of the Class 3 girls' toilets. Girls requiring sanitary protection should go to the school office. Teaching and Outside Agencies At St John the Baptist R.C. Primary School, SRE lessons will be taught by class teachers. Outside agencies will be used to support and assist the teachers in the development of the classroom based work. On rare occasions outside agencies may be involved in classroom based work as part of the developmental programme following discussions and negotiation. They will be required to work within the school s moral framework outlined earlier. Lessons will only have a teaching input from anyone other than the class teacher when there a clear enhancement that they can bring. In this instance these sessions will be jointly planned and run jointly between teaching staff and visitors and the class teacher will be present at all times. The schools procedures for working with external agencies and teaching and learning policy will be followed, including criminal record bureau checks. HIV/AIDS policy The Church calls on us to respond to people with AIDS with the same support, compassion and love as those who suffer from other illnesses. The school follows the procedure outlined by the County council with regard for supporting pupils or staff infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. See website ith_hiv_aids.htm Complaints Procedures Any complaints about the PSHE curriculum should be made to the head teacher who will report to the governors via the link governor. Dissemination of the Policy All staff members and governors will receive a copy of this policy. Copies are available for loan from the office on request. A short summary of this policy will Page 6 of 7

7 be included in the school prospectus. The policy is published on the schools website. Assessment and Recording Teachers assess the children s work in PSHE and citizenship both by making informal judgements as they observe them during lessons and by doing formal assessments of their work, measured against the specific learning objectives set out in the National Curriculum. We have clear expectations of what the pupils will know, understand and be able to do at the end of each key stage. Teachers record the achievements of pupils in PSHE and citizenship on prepared forms. We report these achievements to parents each year. We do not set formal examinations in PSHE and citizenship. The assessments that we make of pupil achievement do not imply that a pupil has passed or failed. Monitoring and Review A nominated governor will have a link role between the school and the governing body. The PSHE co-ordinator is responsible for monitoring the standards of children s work and the quality of teaching. The co-ordinator supports colleagues in the teaching of PSHE and citizenship, by giving them information about current developments in the subject and by providing a strategic lead and direction for the subject in the school. The PSHE co-ordinator arranges visits to the school from any relevant representative from a partner organisation who is involved in supporting the PSHE provision. Page 7 of 7
