Our PSHE curriculum is designed to enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral and social issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. PSHE is integral to the development of children’s values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever-changing society and

As an UNICEF Rights Respecting School, we promote children’s rights and the British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of others.

Our curriculum Intent underpins our PSHE and Citizenship Education, Relationships Education and Health Education Intent.

CORE AIMS/INTENTS:

· to build self-esteem and resilience in our pupils;

· to ensure children feel safe in a positive learning environment;

· to encourage a healthy lifestyle, healthy relationships and positive attitudes throughout school and further into their lives;

· to ensure children, parents and staff become confident and knowledgeable about children’s rights, respect them and begin to take action;

· to ensure children have a comprehensive PSHE Education curriculum with planned progression and skills, concepts and knowledge being built upon year by year.

The curriculum is split into three core themes of: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. The children will meet these themes throughout the course of the year and the themes are built upon as the children move through school.

Our curriculum is tailored to reflect the needs of our pupils. We expect teachers to use the PSHE programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk to help them develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, able to make informed decisions, and be prepared for life and work. Within this curriculum we explicitly teach topics such as Growing and Changing, First Aid and Drug and Alcohol education, and every year we have particular emphasis on anti-bullying, internet safety and health and well-being through whole school focus weeks.
