All learning is planned with the intention of developing the whole child.

Our RSHE curriculum aims to motivate and inspire children through a curriculum that engages and challenges all learners. This aims to meet pupils’ needs, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities of adult life. It is designed to enable children to express their emotions, needs and aspirations through a rich vocabulary. Our RSHE curriculum prepares our learners to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a diverse society. The curriculum we follow supports the children at Dicklbeurgh to tackle the many social, moral and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Children are encouraged to have a positive mental well-being and understand their self-worth in their role at home, school and wider community


We teach a wide ranging RSHE curriculum including Relationship and Sex Education (RSE), using the Jigsaw Programme from Pre-School to Year 6. This is a fully comprehensive PSHE programme that not only ensures we meet all the new statutory requirements for health and wellbeing and relationships, but is also highly engaging, creative, broad and balanced and fully planned and resourced. Its cyclic nature also ensures pupil progression.

Relationships and sex education (RSE) is learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up, relationships and reproduction. It will equip children and young people with accurate information, positive values and the skills to enjoy healthy, safe and positive relationships, to celebrate their uniqueness and to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing now and in the future. RSE is taught in a way which is complementary to the wider ethos, values and principles of our school.
RSE in this school is learning about the body, feelings, beliefs, relationships, rights and responsibilities and knowing how and when to ask for help if needed. It involves acquiring information, developing skills and forming positive beliefs, values and attitudes.

Our curriculum includes opportunities to link Fundamental British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development, to prepare the children for life in Modern Britain. The children learn key vocabulary and develop a deep knowledge within the RSHE curriculum that can be applied across the wider curriculum. In doing so, they reflect on their own experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the issues that are part of growing up as they develop into a reflective and responsible citizen.


Our curriculum ensures that children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to navigate themselves through modern life and become positive role models and effective global citizens. Children will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty.

Spiritual Development

 Through our Jigsaw teaching resource, children learn to have mutual respect and tolerance for those with different beliefs, faiths, backgrounds and lifestyles. They learn about the values and the skills they need to develop to enjoy safe and positive relationships.
