All About Me
At All Saints we are introducing an age appropriate, sex and relationships
education programme called "All About Me" including a programme such as this
in the curriculum became statutory from September 2017.
All About Me will take place for one week during the Spring term.
All About Me is an evidence based package which progresses year by year to an
age appropriate level. The programme is designed to be delivered across all year
groups and builds in knowledge and details along with the children's natural
development and curiosity.
All About Me : explores issues of personal identity - essentially looking at
what makes you - you. Looking at similarities and differences, the important
people and influences in their lives and helping to build confidence and self
My Relationships: explores children's families and friendships, encouraging
them to develop the skills to manage and better understand these relationships
in the real world and online.
My Body: helps children to understand their body, including their private parts;
explores body autonomy, privacy and nakedness. From year 4 on-wards children will learn
about the changes that take place to boys and girls during puberty.
My thoughts: feelings and behaviours: encourages children to develop emotional literacy skills, including understanding their own and other emotions, developing empathy and understand how their behaviour can effect the people around them.
My choices and personal boundaries: explores concepts of consent and personal boundaries. children will understand that we like to be touched in different ways and that people have the right to choose how they like to be touched and by whom.
At All Saints we will be focusing on providing pupils with a safe place to ask questions and offer support which enables children to express and deal with their feeling in a positive manner.
Should you wish your child to be withdrawn from these sessions you are able to make a request in writing to the head teacher.
At All Saints School we follow a county initiative to keep children safe called
Protective Behaviours. Protective Behaviours (PBs) is a practical approach to
personal safety, self-esteem, resilience and confidence building.
Protective Behaviours has two themes:
Theme 1: We all have the right to feel safe all the time
We carefully look at the connection between rights and responsibilities.
We explore feeling safe and the recognition of Early Warning Signs .
Theme 2: We can talk with someone about anything even if it’s awful or small
This theme focuses on the ideas and effects of ‘talking’ and what might happen if we don’t.
We encourage everyone to develop their own personal networks of support,
those people they could turn to if in need.
