PSHE

Subject Tag Line:

At Croyland Primary School, we hope that our PHSE teaching provides our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be thoughtful and reflective citizens who are very aware of their responsibilities to self and others.

PSHE Curriculum Intent

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) is central to our school’s ethos. As a school, we encourage children to think about personal and social values, to become aware of, and involved in the life and concerns of their community and society, and so develop their capacity to be active and effective future citizens.

At CPS, we prioritise the teaching of Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education. It is our intention, that our provision equips our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives.

A critical component of our PSHE education is the provision of opportunities for our children to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes, and to explore complex and sometimes conflicting values and attitudes.

Our approach to PSHE, we hope, fosters and develops the qualities and attributes our pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society and, that it enables them to recognise, accept and shape their identity and value their unique qualities and those of others’; to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage their emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings.

Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others, we hope will help  our pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.

Our PSHE provision also makes a significant contribution to pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, their behaviour and safety, and to their emotional wellbeing and their understanding   of the shared British values: Rule of Law, Democracy, Mutual respect and tolerance and Individual liberty.

Our Curriculum plan for PHSE has been organised to ensure that it includes:

· Accurate age/contextual relevant knowledge.

 · Opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding through age appropriate pedagogy and enrichment.

· Opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.

 · Opportunities to gather knowledge and acquire the skills needed in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.

Curriculum  Implementation

Croyland Primary School has an embedded Primary PSHE long term plan, however, it also responds actively to the needs of the school community and that in which they live.

 

Our spiral curriculum starts in Year 1 and follows the children through to Year 6. The distribution of the lessons complements key campaigns throughout the year such as Anti-bullying Week and we endeavour to raise aspirations through the use of visits or visitors.

Our curriculum includes the essentials below.

  • Substance Misuse
  • Tobacco
  • Risk Taking /Safety
  • Diversity
  • Emotional Health/wellbeing
  • Coping Strategies
  • Healthy Eating
  • Healthy relationships/bullying
  • Puberty/Growing up

  • Democracy
  • Citizenship
  • Physical Activity
  • E-Safety
  • Careers
  • Knife crime/ anti-social behaviour

In the teaching of these areas, strong links are made to British Values and SMSC education
