Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Our PSHE Currculum Intention

At Berkswich CE Primary School, our PSHE experiences revolve around the Biblical principle that we are all, 'fearfully and wonderfully made'; therefore, our children should develop into respectful members of the community. Our whole school PSHE and RSE programme enables all our children, including SEND, EAL and PP to become healthy, independent and responsible members of their society who can enrich their whole lives and understand the contributions which they can make.


At Berkswich, we fully believe in the NC’s statement that we should provide ‘a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life’. Our PSHE and RSE programme enables this and builds on the PSHE Association, the National curriculum and the statutory guidance on drug education, financial education, citizenship, personal safety, RSE and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle. We strive to provide all children with lifelong skills which can be carried on to secondary school, further education, into their career and whole adult life.


We ensure that our children take ownership of their own PSHE journey, which allows them to understand how they are developing personally and socially. Through our broad and balanced PSHE curriculum, we endeavour to prepare our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences they already face and for adult life. We provide a rich range of opportunities, so our children have the information in order to keep themselves healthy and safe, both emotionally and physically. All our staff encourage the children to understand how their actions have consequences and how they can make informed choices to help themselves, others and the environment.  


We recognise that our PSHE and RSE programme should reflect the needs of all our pupils. We expect the teaching staff to use a PSHE programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions.
