PSHE and Equalities Curriculum

At Wylam First School We aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our pupils are given opportunities in PSHE, SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) lessons and assemblies to develop confidence, self-motivation and an understanding of their rights and responsibilities within our diverse society. We teach PSHE in a variety of ways: as a discrete subject or through assemblies and other subjects such as RE, History, Geography, Literacy, Maths and Science, as well as through outdoor educational visits, community work and activities. We teach sex education through PSHE and other curriculum areas.
To support the teaching of the Protected Characteristics of the Equalities Agenda we use the publication 'No Outsiders In Our School' and the Stonewall Resources.
