In the Foundation Stage

The children are taught how to build upon their own experiences and work towards achieving the Early Learning Goal (ELG) for Personal, Social and Emotional Development. This is divided into three main areas of Building Relationships, Managing Self and Self-Regulation.

The SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning) national strategy informs our teaching and children have weekly seal circle time sessions covering different themes each half term

In Key Stage 1 

Our RHE curriculum covers work on relationships and Health and Wellbeing. Children focus on a different theme each half term:

Autumn 1


Spring 2  


Autumn 2


Summer 1

Staying Healthy



Summer 2

Growing up

In KS1 the children are taught skills and rules for staying healthy and safe and for behaving well. Children are given opportunities to show they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. They begin to learn about their own and other people’s feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of others. They learn social skills such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, resolve simple arguments and resist bullying.

In line with the Sheffield RHE guidance the teaching of sex education begins in KS2 and is not covered within our school.

At Dobcroft Infant School our Relationships and Health Education is embedded in to our school ethos and curriculum.
