Relationships Education • The school aims to support parents in their responsibilities in the education of their own children in relationship matters which are better taught and understood in a family setting. • Our aim in school is to provide children with a moral framework as well as the biological facts about their bodies. In addition, children will be encouraged to be open and to be able to ask questions and make decisions. • The understanding of relationships and responsibilities, their emotional and caring aspects, are central to our aim. This would include children’s self-respect, self-image and their respect of others. Our approach will be non-judgmental and non-threatening, taking account of the variety of family circumstances from which our children come. • Open channels of communication between home and school.
Relationships Education • Relationships Education at Pinewood Infant School is part of the personal, social, health and emotional education of the child. • Our aim in school is to provide children with a moral framework as well as the biological facts about their bodies. In addition, children will be encouraged to be open and to be able to ask questions and make decisions. • We will focus on supporting the children in knowing who their trusted adults are and that their trusted adults might be different from other people's trusted adults, e.g. mum, dad, gran, two mums/dads/ foster carer/step-mum, teacher, etc. • We will reinforce the message that families, no matter what the structure is, are there to love and care for us and keep us safe. • The school approach to Relationships Education will support parents in this aspect of their child’s development and, therefore, is a collaborative process.
