PSHRE and SRE Programme
PSHRE and SRE Programme
New Horizons is committed to providing a high quality educational experience for all pupils. Our curriculum defines and supports the whole ethos of our school.
At New Horizons, our personal, social, health and economic education (PSHRE) curriculum brings together healthy relationships, social responsibility and personal well-being, whilst promoting fundamental British values.
Although PSHRE is taught through discreet lessons, it is also integrated into all activities, assemblies, educational visits and extra-curricular clubs. There are frequent opportunities provided in school which encompass PSRHE education, including (but not limited to) sports tournaments, celebration assemblies, class residential days and trips as well school council meetings.
It is intended that we will offer an aspirational, cohesive whole-school approach which inspires our children to achieve their full potential, whilst empowering them to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
PSRHE is taught across the school continuously during lessons, assemblies, school clubs, school events and break times. Furthermore, PSRHE is integrated into our curriculum through SMSC, our values and the principles underpinning our School Mission Statement:
Our PSHRE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils preparing them for life in the wider world. At New Horizons, our fundamental aims are:

For further information, please see the Sex and Relationships Education Policy on the school website.
This school delivers SRE with regards to the Equality Act 2010 and observance of the protected characteristics of age, sex, race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment , pregnancy or maternity, marriage or civil partnership and sexual orientation, We recognise that children have varying needs regarding SRE depending on their circumstances and background. The school believes that all people should have access to SRE that is relevant to their particular needs.
In order for PSHRE or SRE to be conducted safely the following will be in place:
RSE takes place within mixed gender classes or single gender groups as deemed appropriate and relevant with the pupil’s usual teacher. There may be times when choosing particular mixes of genders may be useful. It is important to note that although separated genders may have different activities on occasions the messages and information they receive will be consistent. It will be left to the teacher’s discretion to make these decisions.
