Our PSHE curriculum aims to embrace the challenges of supporting our children to grow up in today’s society equipping them to create a happy and successful adult life for themselves. We believe that providing a nurturing environment helps our children to feel comfortable to explore and develop personally through self-reflection. We understand the importance of PSHE to support children’s mental health and well-being and so all children have the opportunity to freely express themselves in a safe and caring environment where all opinions and values are celebrated and welcomed.
Our PSHE curriculum is personalised to meet the needs of our learners and teachers model good speaking and listening skills to empower children with the emotional vocabulary they need to express their thoughts and feelings.
We aim to equip children to have the skills to be able to succeed in many different areas of the curriculum and throughout life as the learned skills are transferrable. We encourage children to develop their growth mind-set and persevere through any challenges they may face. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
PSHE lessons aim to support children develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help and to know where to access support. In today’s ever-changing society where children are faced with many challenges we use PSHE as a way for us to help our children come back into school life, acknowledging the experiences they may have had. We want children to be happy, feel safe and able to be engaged in their learning.
