Every day, children learn what it is to be a Haydonleigh Pupil through our everyday language, assemblies, and discrete lessons. These opportunities teach them our core values, of which there are five; Resilience, Creativity, Respect, Enthusiasm and Unity.
Pupils take part in a PSHE session every week, exploring values and learning behaviours but also combines the schemes of; Jigsaw, St Johns Ambulance, NSPCC and tailored Haydonleigh content.
Children at Haydonleigh understand what it is to be a Haydonleigh pupil by reflecting the school’s values. This is seen in how they talk to their peers, how they move around the building, their attitudes to learning and their understanding of how they take care of themselves. Pupils at Haydonleigh are well mannered and reflective individuals.

Relationship and Sex Education
From September 2020, it was made a statutory requirement that all schools in England and Wales are teaching Relationship and Sex Education as a fundamental part of the curriculum.
The statutory guidance can be found at:
The guidance focuses on healthy relationships and keeping children safe in the modern world. It also covers a wide range of topics relating to physical and mental health, wellbeing, safeguarding and healthy relationships.
Learning about the emotional, social and physical aspects of growing up will give children and young people the information, skills and positive values to have safe, fulfilling relationships and help them take responsibility for their own well-being.
As part of implementing the RSE curriculum, schools must consult with the children, parents, staff and governors to ensure there is a general consensus on our approaches to policy and the curriculum content.

RSE Curriculum Parent Consultation Feedback 2023
We invited you to share your views on our Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) curriculum which is delivered through PSHE lessons here at Haydonleigh. The purpose of the consultation was to share with you our curriculum approach and to seek your feedback. We would like to thank all parents and carers who took time to submit responses and complete the questionnaire.
In total, we had 3 responses from families with children from various year groups giving us information about the thoughts and concerns of parents and carers.
Overall, in the face to face meetings, the responses gathered were positive about the curriculum and what we do to ensure that our pupil have the appropriate knowledge and understanding of safe and healthy relationships based on respect.
