Additional Curriculum Information
Religious Education is part of the curriculum and the school follows the Hampshire syllabus ‘Living Difference III’. It is non-denominational and broadly Christian in character, drawing on other religions to show the similarities in beliefs and moral concepts. Details of the syllabus are available at the school office.
Collective worship is held every day and forms an important part of our school community and the values we hold. Themes vary from Bible stories to moral themes such as caring, sharing and praising good effort.
Parents may withdraw their child from Collective Worship and Religious Education by informing the Head Teacher in writing.
Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Development
Spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development is at the heart of the education offered at Kempshott Infant School. We want to help pupils develop an understanding of themselves and the world, to enjoy positive memorable experiences and to shape the communities they live in. Through working in close partnership with you, we aim for all children to flourish within the happy and safe environment of our school.
Relationships and Health Education
Relationships and Health Education (RHEd) is about the emotional, social, and cultural development of pupils, and involves learning about relationships, healthy lifestyles, diversity and personal identity. The RHEd curriculum focusses on the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships and relationships with other children and adults. The children will also be taught (in an age appropriate way) to recognise and report different types of abuse, including emotional, physical and sexual. This will include focusing on boundaries and privacy so that children understand that they have rights over their own bodies and know how to seek advice when they suspect or know something is wrong.
In 1989 the world made a set of promises to all children when it adopted “The Convention on the Rights of the Child”. At Kempshott Infant School we make a promise to help every child understand their rights and their responsibility to respect the rights of others.
