One Childhood - One Chance

Upcoming Personal Development Learning in Term 2!

Next term, our Personal Development curriculum will focus on equality, diversity and inclusion within relationships. This learning will take place as part of our Personal Development Week during the first week back of Term Two (beginning on Tuesday 31st October).

In line with government guidance, we shall be teaching children about Protected Characteristics. Protected Characteristics are 9 areas that not allowed to be the subject of discrimination in the UK.  Each year group will focus specifically on three Protected Characteristics:

Year 3: pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief

Year 4: age, race, religion and belief

Year 5: age, disability, religion and belief

Year 6: disability, sexual orientation and religion and belief

This will be a fantastic week of learning in which the children will learn about human rights and the incredible fact that people around the world are all different, diverse and unique!

The following objectives will be taught during this week:

Year 5:

To understand similarities and differences can come from many areas

To understand the consequences of discrimination in bullying

To understand how to respond and ask for help

To recognise and challenge stereotypes
