PSHE

Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. When taught well, PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life. PSHE Association, 2016,

Intent

Through our PSHE curriculum the intent is to deliver learning which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. We want them to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who are actively involved in their communities throughout their lives. They will have the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. To achieve this, we offer children opportunities which allow them to:

  • develop and deepen their’ understanding of the fundamental British values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and mutual respect and tolerance 
  • understand equality of opportunity so that all pupils can thrive together, understanding that difference is a positive, so that they celebrate the unique qualities of individuals
  • build confidence, resilience and knowledge so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy
  • understand and recognise online and offline risks to their well-being – for example, risks from criminal and sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, substance misuse, gang activity, radicalisation and extremism – and give them the knowledge and skills to keep safe
  • develop an understanding of how to keep physically healthy, eat healthily and maintain an active lifestyle, including giving ample opportunities for pupils to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities
  • recognise the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media 
  • develop age-appropriate understanding of healthy relationships through appropriate relationship and sex education

Implementation

We follow the You, Me PSHE scheme to deliver our lessons. This offers us a clear progressive PSHE curriculum which is divided into seven different strands. Within each strand there are age appropriate topics ensuring that children develop skills and knowledge which is built upon as they move through school. Where we can, we make links with topics to give context to the learning. We enhance our PSHE curriculum with visits and visitors and themed days or weeks.
