PHSE

Our Intent

In PSHE, we give our children the knowledge, understanding and tools to enable them to play an active role in society. We encourage children to have confidence in their own thoughts and believe that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. We promote respect and tolerance for those who choose to live their lives differently to others. Having the ability to stay safe and healthy is a high priority and children are equipped to make informed decisions.

 

Implementation

The Derbyshire ‘PSHE Matters’ scheme is used for the majority of PSHE and RSE lessons to ensure progression throughout the school. RSE is interwoven within this scheme, with cross curricular links to science made as part of this. PSHE/RSE is timetabled throughout the school and is taught weekly in every year group. Knowledge and skills are taught through topics which are revisited in Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2 to ensure previous skills are built upon and further developed. Foundation Stage also follow the same topics as the scheme (as per long term plan) but follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum PSHE statements to plan lessons.

Special weeks and days which link to PSHE/RSE learning include: Deaf Awareness Week, World Mental Health Day, Children’s Mental Health Week, Anti-bullying Week, Internet safety Week. There is a strong link to computing when teaching about staying safe online and online bullying.  We also encourage the use of visitors (e.g. nurses, Police Officers) from the school community and beyond to support the delivery of the PSHE/RSE to enrich the curriculum.

 

Impact

We firmly believe that a meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident, tolerant and well-rounded adults. Children can approach a range of real-life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life. From exposure to a range of global issues and problems, children can build up tolerance and a sense of responsibility of being a global citizen. Our end of term data, pupil interviews, learning walks and book scrutinies show high standards and good progress across the school.
