Personal Development Curriculum
Our vision for this part of the curriculum is that it will be taught in three blocks across the academic year and that every child, in every class, will be learning about the same topic, at the same time, just in a tailored age appropriate way. The three blocks will be as follows:
This will focus on teaching the new statutory topic for 2020 to the children of relationships education. This topic will have a slight scientific focus considering aspects like health and our bodies and how they change as we grow, as well as thinking about other relationships such as families and friendships. If you would like to read further information on this and the end of primary expectations, please click on the link below. However, more information on this topic will follow in due course. Please bear in mind when reading the following information that all subjects will be taught at appropriate stages in your child’s development.
This topic will take a PSHE focus (personal, social and health education) talking to the children about what makes them special, unique and different to others. Our aim is for the children to understand that it is good to be them and that no two people are the same and that this is okay. This topic will also have a mental health and well-being focus, again at age appropriate level.
The above topic of my rights is where we aim to explicitly teach the children about their rights as a child and how they can make a difference within the world. As Floreat Montague Park is an awarded Rights Committed school by UNICEF, teaching children about their rights will underpin and form some of the ethos of our school. Therefore, your child may tell you about the rights they are learning throughout the year, as we teach them through our daily school routine, fundraising days, classroom life and daily assemblies. At Floreat Montague Park we believe that we should teach for the rights, about the rights and through the rights of a child.
