CURRICULUMPersonal, Social, Health & Economic (PSHE)
PSHE Curriculum Ambition: National
We want an education that prepares our pupils for life today, and tomorrow. What we teach in the classroom will help them foster lifelong aspirations, goals and values. From making informed decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps our pupils prepare for all the opportunities, challenges, life decisions and responsibilities they’ll face.
This in turn achieves a ‘virtuous circle’, whereby pupils with better health and wellbeing can achieve better academically, and enjoy greater success.
PSHE incorporates the statutory element of Relationships, Sex Education (RSE). RSE supports pupils to develop healthy relationships in various contexts, and to know when to seek help.
PSHE Curriculum Ambition: Federation
PSHE education isn’t just another school subject. It’s a chance to give every child and young person an equal opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge they need to thrive now and in the future. This includes helping them to deal with critical issues they face every day such as friendships, emotional wellbeing and change.
Our PSHE is a curriculum designed and written for our schools with our pupils in mind. Every term a strand of the curriculum is taught across the school with age appropriate progression designed to ensure pupils know more and remember more.
From Year 2, pupils begin to learn how to journal, supporting their independence and ability to reflect and self-regulate. This is an integral aspect of the curriculum and ensures that pupils are making progress that impacts on them as individuals.
The 6 strands of the PSHE curriculum are:
Building resilience, Mental Wellbeing, Respectful Relationships, Relationships & Sex Education (RSE), Health education, Caring Friendships and Living in the Wider World.
Working collaboratively to inspire learners to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and values required for lifelong learning and to be successful, active members of the Trust and wider community.
