PSHE

Personal, Social, Health and Emotional Development

Aims

By ensuring that PSHE is a central aspect of each pupils learning experience, we aim to enable children to: 

  • Know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle
  • Be aware of safety issues
  • Understand friendships and relationships with others
  • Have respect for others
  • Be independent and responsible members of the school community
  • Be positive and active members of a global community
  • Develop self-confidence and self-esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues
  • Develop understanding of their own bodies and changes
  • Aspire to economic well-being

 

Intent: Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education Curriculum 

Every pupil has a learning journey made up of descriptors that are designed to map pupils’ development and understanding. This ensures personalised learning, focused on skills that are important to each individual. Rights Respecting is taught across the whole year and is included in all areas of the curriculum. Pupils are taught about their rights and encouraged to consider their own morals and values, whilst understanding the importance of being able to voice their opinion. 

PSHE is taught in five main areas link closely to the core themes set out within the programme of study. 

Health and Wellbeing

Relationships

Living in the Wider World

1. Self-Care: Where pupils learn how to look after themselves to the best of their ability.  This ranges from toileting and dressing/undressing to making the bed, washing clothes and being able to shave safely.

2. Social Skills: Where pupils learn the skills needed to be around and communicate appropriately with others both in school and out of school. This ranges from basic play skills to forming and maintaining friendships.

3. Life Skills: Where pupils have the opportunities to develop skills that they are going to need when they leave school to have as much of an independent life as possible. This ranges from basic table etiquette to understanding and accessing public amnesties.

4. Physical Health and Mental Wellbeing: Where the pupils learn the skills to lead healthy lives, to learn new sporting skills, to recognise what they need to do to feel good. This ranges from gross motor skills to fine motor skills.

5. Relationship and Sex Education (RSE): Where pupils are split into groups based around level of understanding and sometimes gender.  The aim is to develop their friendship and relationship skills, as well as providing a vital insight into their own bodies and the changes that happen, the opposite sex, sexual relationships and consent and the law.

Curriculum Intent 

The curriculum delivery will depend upon the curriculum pathway and level of learning that the pupil is working within. This will be clearly sequenced through the PSHE Curriculum Model. 

Explorers and Seekers

In the Explorers and Seekers classes PSHE is an integral part of the topic work covered during the year.  At this stage we relate the PSHE and Citizenship aspects of the children’s work to the objectives set out in the Early Learning Goals (ELGs).  Our teaching in PSHE aims to develop a child’s personal, emotional and social development as set out in the Early Years Framework.  We also support citizenship education in reception classes when we teach “how to develop a child’s knowledge and understanding of the world”.

Discoverers

PSHE in the Discovery Curriculum follows the PSED work developed from the Readiness for Further Learning.  Pupils are also beginning to develop their skills on the learning ladder and development of these skills continues throughout the week as part of their life skills approach to learning.

Enquirers

 

Pupils have 3 hours of PSHE per week, where there is coverage across the five curriculum areas, learning wherever possible is practical so that pupils learn through their experiences. We also teach PSHE as an integral part of all curriculum areas covered during the year.  In addition to this, pupils in Year 7 and beyond have RSE lessons weekly for two terms of the year. In addition to this pupils also have careers education.

Navigators

PSHE is delivered at to Navigators through their chosen accreditation – ASDAN Short Course. The RSE and drugs education modules are delivered by class teachers weekly for two terms each year. In addition to this pupils also have a careers lesson and follow an accreditation in ‘Employability’, this covers some aspects of careers and financial management in preparation for their futures.
