Values and PSHE
At Fairlawn, we aim for every child to have high self-esteem and be equipped to make a valuable contribution in later life.
Our PSHE curriculum is delivered through values education. Our three core values are taught each year, with one being taught each term.
Autumn – Friendship
Spring – Responsibility
Summer – Empathy
There is a weekly PSHE lesson; values are also embedded through whole school assemblies and cross-curricular application.
Remaining PSHE learning time is used to meet each class’s personal, social and health needs. Class teachers decide how best to deliver this provision.
Class teachers also cover Sex and Relationships Education content for their year group during the Summer term with the aim of ensuring that children understand the boundaries of healthy relationships and the changes in their bodies. Notice is given 2 weeks prior to SRE being taught. Anyone who wishes to withdraw their child from aspects of SRE, must inform the Headteacher in writing.
At Fairlawn, we promote children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development across the school.
