PSHE Curriculum Intent

Intent

At Crook Primary School, it is our intent that all children will be ‘lifelong learners’ with the confidence and ability to develop their skills and understanding when having new experiences, meeting new challenges and finding themselves in unfamiliar situations.  We share a cohesive vision to help children to develop positive values and a moral framework that will guide their decisions, judgements and behaviour. We want all children to understand and value how they and others fit into and contribute to the world. We have a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health through the delivery of a programme of engaging and relevant PSHE within a whole school approach. Our approach aims to develop the qualities and attributes children need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society and the global community. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. Our PSHE curriculum supports the children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We uphold positive values, morals and beliefs which are in line with the core British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. An SRE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum enables pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives.

What do we want for our pupils? 

  • To develop their confidence and self-esteem so that they value themselves and others and have a respect for individual conscience and the skills to judge what kind of relationship they want. 
  • To develop skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe. 
  • To develop an attitude of a responsible global citizen.
  • To show tolerance of others beliefs, religions and life choices. 
  • To build positive, respectful relationships with other people 
  • To increase their awareness of sources of help and acquire the skills and confidence to access advice and support if necessary.
  • To develop skills of negotiation and decision making.
  • To learn how to manage emotions within relationships confidently and sensitively.

 

Implementation

How do we deliver PSHE at Crook Primary School?

  • Medium term planning is given to all staff which has been developed by PSHE lead in guidance with The PSHE Association to meet the needs of our pupils.
  • Medium term planning outlines the progression in skills and knowledge in the PSHE curriculum
  • The six core learning themes are: Family and relationships; Health and wellbeing; Safety and the changing body; Citizenship; and Economic well-being.
  • It identifies links to British Values, Cultural Capital and SMSC.
  • Much of Crook Primary School’s Relationships Education and Relationship and Sex Education is delivered through its PSHE Programme, RE and Science lessons at foundation stage, KS1 and KS2.
  • The teaching and learning of SRE is planned explicitly within each year group so that children know more, remember more and understand more. 
  • Learning in each topic then takes place using a weekly PSHE lesson which lasts for 1 hour.
  • In the Foundation Stage, PSHE is an integral part of the topic work covered throughout the entire year; many aspects of the Early Learning Goals are steered towards children’s physical and emotional development and wellbeing. 
  • More expert or specialist teachers and other professionals, such as the emergency services and the school nurse, may complement our PSHE curriculum to offer additional learning. 
  • Parent Consultation - Parents are informed of the content of the SRE programme of work through the school website, planned information sessions, phase information leaflets and further support / clarification will be given if required.
