PSHE and Relationship Education
Meadows Primary School and Nursery strives to encourage children to be responsible and caring members of the school and wider community.
We aim to help children to develop values of mutual understanding and respect of others and to develop responsible attitudes in order to lead confident, healthy and independent lives.
Relationships Education is now a mandatory part of the Primary Curriculum.

At Meadows Primary School we use the Shropshire Respect Yourself: Eat Better, Move More, Relationship Education programme.
This is an award-winning programme with the quality kite mark from the PSHE Association.
In planning and presenting our Relationship Education programme we provide the opportunity for pupils to express themselves within a trustedand safe environment, following agreed ground rules.
We want to reassure children of their value and self-worth including aspects of dignity,
self- respect and self-restraint, help them to have a responsible attitude towards personal relationships including mutual respect and care and to
develop sensitivity towards the needs of others, provide knowledge of loving relationships and human reproductive process.
Teachers will inform parents via a letter 4 weeks prior to Relationship Education sessions being taught. Parents who would like to view the resources can contact the school office and arrangements can be made for a member of the Health and Wellbeing team to share the full scheme of work, or just a specific year groups resources.

Early Years – In the Early Years curriculum, the children are encouraged to take part in daily hygiene activities, such as hand washing, and using the bathroom appropriately. Good hygiene practices, good manners, being able to identify a range of emotions, and learning to share are all part of the curriculum which links to Relationship Education.
If parents have any additional questions about the scheme of work, then please contact the School Office and ask for a telephone call withMrs Roden (PSHE co-ordinator) Mrs Roberts (Inclusion mentor) or Mrs Mejer (Deputy Head Teacher) who will be happy to discuss and answer any further questions you may have.
