At Gilbert Colvin, we aim for every child to have high self-esteem and be equipped to make a valuable contribution in life.

Our PSHE curriculum is delivered through and alongside our values-based curriculum, our work towards Rights Respecting Schools Award, Philosophy for Children (P4C) approach and Sex and Relationship Education (SRE).


Rights Respecting School

As a school we are currently on our journey to completing RRS award level 1. The award campaigns for the protection of children’s rights in order to meet their basic needs and empower them to realise their full potential. We teach children about their rights and responsibilities alongside developing their understanding of the rights of others. This helps improve their self-esteem and well-being, improve relationships and behaviour, engagement in learning. It develops positive attitudes towards diversity in society and the reduction of prejudice, enhanced moral understanding and helps them become more involved in decision-making in schools.

Philosophy for children (P4C)

P4C enables our children to reason more effectively and to discuss issues relating to life and the world in which we live in.

In P4C the teacher facilitates a student-led discussion on a philosophical question. P4C builds higher order thinking, questioning, speaking and listening skills. It creates respect for others, promotes engagement with learning and enhances educational development. We will soon be embarking on a ‘Going for Gold’ scheme so that our school is recognised as a philosophical place of learning

Sex and Relationships Education

Class teachers cover Sex and Relationships Education content for their year group with the aim of ensuring that children understand the boundaries of healthy relationships and the changes in their bodies. Notice is always given prior to SRE being taught.
