PSHE and RSE
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and pastoral support is placed at the heart of our curriculum offer.
At Lincoln Carlton Academy, our intention is to provide a high-quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) to ensure our children have the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives and relationships now and, in the future, within the local community and within the wider world.
Our PSHE/RSE curriculum shapes the whole ethos of our school and embodies our Golden Rules and values. We want all children to feel happy and safe both at home and school, and to know how they can get help. Building strong relationships is at the heart of this - we listen and respond to the child’s voice in a safe, open and honest environment.
For all our children in school, the PSHE/RSE curriculum is implemented, reinforced and enhanced through interactions with each other and the adults around them; through daily routines, through activities and events, and through systems and processes.
At Lincoln Carlton Academy, we view every interaction as a teaching opportunity and as a way of taking what the children have learned in PSHE/RSE and using it in everyday situations. Behaviour or language that is not in keeping with our rules, values, ethos is not tolerated, is challenged, and is dealt with in accordance with our policies.
An important part of our PSHE/RSE curriculum links to self-regulation. Self-regulation allows you to understand and manage behaviours and reactions to feelings and things happening around you. It plays a significant role in managing emotions, focus and attention, and actions.
At Lincoln Carlton Academy, we use the Incredible 5 Point Scale to support all children to be able to self-regulate and, when they are able to, express their feelings and emotions. When an issue arises that needs to be addressed, this is done so in a timely manner.
