At Rudston Primary we are fully committed to providing a PSHE curriculum that is accessible to all pupils which supports them in becoming healthy, responsible and independent members of society.
Our curriculum aims to provide children with the chance to ask and challenge ‘big questions’ with the opportunity to develop their own voice and self-awareness in a respectful and supportive environment.
We aim for all children to leave Rudston Primary School with the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe and prepared the next phase of their education. Laying the foundations for all pupils to thrive and reach their full potential.
At Rudston we aim to provide a spiral curriculum which ensures structured progression, so children build up their understanding of health, relationships, safety and social issues in age-appropriate steps.
