PSHE Curriculum  

We learn PSHE so pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. 

We teach PSHE through 3 key themes: 

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world.

Implementation - we teach PSHE alongside RSHE and by following the 1decision program. 

Prior to the topic 

  • Children will complete a pre learning task to see what they already know and remember, this will act as a baseline but teachers must consider the previously taught knowledge and skills already taught in the curriculum.
  • Parents will be notified of content and use of resources on more sensitive matters prior to children beginning the topic
  • During a topic
  • At the beginning of a topic and throughout the topic, children will consider and recap key knowledge about the key aspect of PSHE
  • Each lesson children will be reminded of the key knowledge that they learnt previously and how this links to current learning.
  • Specialist key vocabulary will be explicitly taught at the beginning and throughout a topic.
  • Lessons will include discussion, debate, drama, role play, decision making
  • Children will be encouraged to think critically and reflect, using empathy.
  • Children will be encouraged to discuss big ideas and concepts.
  • Lessons will be delivered through carefully considered content, resources and perspectives ensuring that the children experience a rounded view of each aspect of the programme of study
  • Children will be encouraged to make connections and comparisons, follow investigations and enquiry through discussion
  • The learning will be presented in a range of ways – this will include using a range of cross curricular opportunities such as IT, maths, writing, art but may mostly involve drama, talk and discussion.
  • Teachers will adapt learning to meet the needs of all children, using differentiation and adult support.
  • Elaborative questioning, using Blooms taxonomy, will be used to challenge pupils and discuss big ideas.
  • Visitors will be used to enhance learning experiences.

To enable us to fulfil the statutory requirements, we have chosen a high quality resource to deliver the PSHE requirements as stated in the link above. This is a unique blend of videos, techniques and resources to approcah the topics and enable pupils to understand key knowledge appropriate to their age and stage of learning. A range of skils wil be developed in the process and enable all pupils to make informed descisions about personal, social, health and economic life choices.
