Our overall aim is to have children who are respectful, responsible, resilient, and kind and who are able to apply their experiences to the wider world. We are committed to:

  • Teach the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing. We are clear that mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health.
  • Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our children.
  • Put in the key building blocks of healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on families and friendships, in all contexts, including online.
  • Support our children in developing healthy minds and a positive self-esteem and equip them with the knowledge of how to take care of their mental health and receive support if needed. This includes a focus on the importance of talking about our feelings.
  • Support our children in having the ability to believe that they can achieve goals, both academic and personal.
  • Support our children with the ability to understand that mistakes are learning curves and equip them with the skills to deal with challenging times.
  • Prepare our pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life, thus helping to create happy, successful and productive members of our community.
  • Ensure that our curriculum meets the needs of the current children in the community that we serve.
  • Support the development of responsibility and responsibility.
  • Take into account the religious backgrounds and beliefs of the children in our community.

We achieve this through all aspects of our daily school life and curriculum, including in class, in assemblies and on the playground.  Specifically we teach key themes through weekly PSHSE lessons, following the Corum Life Education, SCARF scheme. https://www.coramlifeeducation.org.uk/scarf



RSE is about the emotional, social and cultural development of pupils and throughout a child’s schooling, involves learning about relationships, sexual health, sexuality, healthy lifestyles and personal identity.  It involves a combination of sharing information and exploring issues and values.  It is not about the promotion of sexual activity.

At Ewhurst we teach age-appropriate content which will provide a foundation for future learning.   We are aware and show respect that children come from different home situations.

Whilst our RSHE teaching and learning is set within our Coram Life Education curriculum, however we also ensure that it remains consistent with our school’s values of friendship, perseverance, honesty, respect, love and community.

We recognise that parents have the right to withdraw their children from sex education but not health and relationships education, which, at present, is compulsory for all pupils receiving primary education.
