Verwood Church of England First School and Nursery

PSHE, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Consultation

Verwood CE First School and Nursery will be starting their consultation process on Friday 29th January 2021; the consultation will close on Monday 22nd February 2021.

HeartSmart is used to enrich our delivery of PSHE. The program aims to build resilience, strengthen emotional intelligence and develop active empathy. Fundamentally, it teaches our children to love and accept themselves as well as loving and respecting each other. Boris the HeartSmart robot provides a fun and interactive way to explore their hearts - as their heart is the thing that makes each child unique.
