PSHE

PSHE curriculum intent:

 

“Be the change that you wish to see in this world”

Mahatma Ghandi

Preparing children for their future is fundamental. Teaching children how to recognise and manage their emotions, cope with life and knowing who to go to for help is vital. In order to give children the best chance in life, we believe that we need to equip our children with the knowledge, understanding attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive and fulfilled lives. We also strongly believe that from teaching PSHE, it should enable children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values they encounter now and will do in the future. For us, PSHE is about developing a child’s sense of identity, their capacity to relate to others and to handle setbacks.

Our PSHE curriculum has different strands of focus, and we put a heavy importance on each. The different areas we teach are:

  • Me and my world
  • Anti-bullying
  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • Healthy lifestyles
  • Financial capability
  • Being safe
  • SRE (Sex and relationships education)

Implementation

PSHE lessons are taught on focus skills and knowledge. Each week, classes will dedicate half an hour of their teaching time to Time to be PROUD, which reflect on our core values of perseverance, respect, opportunity, united and do our best.. This is a circle time session where the children talk about different areas and then reflect on choices they make, their beliefs and values and develop interpersonal skills.
