Beaumont Primary School

RSHE / PSHE / British Values


Intent: Our PSHE/RSHE/BV curriculum at Beaumont is shaped by our wider vision which aims to help children stay healthy, safe and prepared for life – and work – in modern Britain. We want our children to be inquisitive with high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. 

At Beaumont, we actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith. Through reflecting on these values, pupils discover what it means to be good citizens.  

We want to ensure that all pupils understand what healthy relationships look like, how to communicate their own boundaries and recognise the boundaries of others, staying safe online and the differences between appropriate and inappropriate or unsafe contact. We implement the government’s recommendation to include the teaching of different family models and same-sex relationships. 

We plan age appropriate lessons to develop respect for others and oneself. In an ever–changing world, it is important that children are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being. 

Although the PSHE/RSHE/BV curriculums are taught through discrete lessons, collective worship times, initiatives and awareness days, the values, expectations and key messages are embedded and entwined throughout our curriculum and day to day life at Beaumont. This is evident in the presentation and behaviour of both pupils and staff, the respect that is given to one another and the environment in which we all share.
