Learning to bring out the best in everyone through ‘living life in all its fullness’ – our children, our staff and the members of our whole-school community

PSHE

The document below summarises the Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education Curriculum for primary school children. 

As part of your children’s learning experience at Fressingfield Primary, we aim to promote personal wellbeing and development through our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme.  This covers a wide variety of topics, providing children with the knowledge, understanding and skills to live healthy, safe and fulfilled lives.

The Department for Education has made changes to relationships and sex education (RSE), following nationwide consultation, which came into effect from September 2020, and all schools are required to comply with the requirements.  Guidance can be found below.  

Learning focuses on healthy relationships in the modern world, and covers a wide range of topics relating to wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.  We have reviewed our RSE curriculum and, in consultation with parents/carers, governors and other local schools, are confident that we have quality teaching materials and staff who are trained and confident to teach this area of the curriculum.More information can be found below.  The PowerPoint is especially recommended, as it provides detail of what we teach and why.

  • Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

    A massive thank you and well done to Imogen, Autumn, Sophia, Amelia and Lewis, who have completed their Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador training online. They will now be working to help us develop an anti-bullying culture and a community of kindness in our school. They have already organised a couple of Feelgood Fridays, with a theme of music and dance. For more information on the this, see the link below.

  • Junior Road Safety Officers

    Many thanks to our team, who organised a recent Brightness Week, encouraging us all to dress sensibly whilst out and about when it’s getting dark. Here are a selection of some competition entries they received.  Great work, everybody. 

  • Anti-Bullying Week

    Fressingfield children have recently been finding out more about the role they can play in tackling bullying behaviour.  They celebrated the start of Anti-Bullying Week by wearing different socks on Odd Socks Day!  Can you think why?  Over the week, the children took part in a variety of assemblies and activities, helping them to learn how to make our school a safer, happier place.  

    In Congo Class, the children made an anti-bullying wall, thinking about how they might play their part.  For more information for parents and carers, see below:

  • Share Healthy Living Session

    Many thanks to all children and adults who attended our after-school workshop on healthier lifestyles.  We had some very positive comments from many people, and children all said they enjoyed themselves.  From sampling vegan food, and challenging each other in a fitness circuit, to guessing how much sugar in drinks and chatting with a local author about her book on positive attitudes, everybody had a great time.  You now have no excuse to get more active and enjoy life more!

SCHOOL COUNCIL

It’s great to see our School Council, elected by Fressingfield children, busy planning and organising!  Well done for helping to make our Children in Need day such a success.  We are currently working alongside our Eco-group to make our school more environmentally-friendly.  And thank you for all your ideas about how to make our school safe.

JUNIOR ROAD SAFETY GROUP

What a great choice of children you have all voted in to do this job.  And thank you for organising Brightness Day.  We had a great time dressing up in our brightest clothes, and also learned a lot about why this is so important when we’re out and about in the winter months.

ECO-GROUP

Thank you for all your great ideas about making our school less wasteful, and for all your global warming posters.  This term, we will be thinking of fundraising for the World Land Trust.  Children were so positive about our WLT visitor that we all feel we need to send them a few pennies!

JIGSAW

We are now using Jigsaw for some of our planning and teaching units in PSHE.  There are some great assemblies and songs in this scheme, and the adults are looking forward to teaching these units with you!

KS2 HELPERS

A big thank you to all the children who help with daily jobs, like composting and checking lights are turned off.  All these small things help our school to be more environmentally-aware.  And when we save energy, we save money!

MP VISIT

Thank you to local MP Dr Daniel Poulter, who recently visited our school to talk about Parliament and Democracy.  And many thanks to children who asked such interesting questions!
