PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education)
Subject Leaders: Mrs. S. Barry and Mrs. H. Henry
Statement of Intent for PSHE:
We want our children to feel safe and supported at school. We aim to provide them with life skills through teaching them about relationships, health, protecting the environment, being safe in the community, being kind and thoughtful and how to seek help.
RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) is an integral part of the PSHE curriculum. It became statutory for all primary schools from September 2020.
How and when is PSHE taught?
One lesson is timetabled each week for PSHE. To support the teaching, learning and progression of skills, we have subscribed to a Catholic programme by Ten:Ten called ‘Life to the Full’. This platform provides creative resources that we think engage, inform and inspire children, parents and staff. Ten:Ten also offers interactive parent access via a parent portal.
Ten:Ten’s Online Parent Portal contains:
- An overview of the programme, “Life to the Full”
- Guidance for parents on the content of lessons
- Activities that can be undertaken at home to support the delivery of the programme
Whole-School Curriculum Map Please note that following our parent consultation, it was decided that yrs 4-6 would complete Module One in the summer term. Yrs 4-6 will complete the pathway with Modules 2, 3 and 1.
Further PSHE skills, discussions and activities are also covered in a number of other subjects, particularly RE, Computing (online safety), Science, History, Geography, PE and Art. In addition, whole-school collective worship, key stage assemblies, extra curricular trips, workshops and charitable fundraising all complement our PSHE curriculum.
