PSHE Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact statement.
Intention (Why do we teach what we teach ?)
We have designed our PSHE curriculum so that our learners:
- Develop themselves intellectually, morally, socially and spiritually
- Acquire the skills, knowledge and attributes they need to keep themselves physically and emotionally healthy and safe
- Flourish regardless of background, ability or additional needs, to become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be
- Possess a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and are supported in playing a positive role in contributing to an ever-changing society.
- Acquire the curiosity and confidence to question, challenge and reflect
Implementation (How do we teach it ?)
Our PSHE curriculum is taught:
- Covering the three PSHE core themes of Health and Well-being, Relationships and The Wider World.
- Through weekly lessons that following the statutory curriculum, alongside the flexibility when occasions arise that teachers feel it necessary to teach PSHE as a result of an issue arising in their own class.
- So that children build on key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and use these across the wider curriculum.
- So that children will become healthy and responsible members of society, equipped with the knowledge and skills to make the right choices in society, alongside demonstrating and applying the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual Respect, Rule of Law and Liberty
- Learning is not confined to the classroom, PSHE themes are covered within and through weekly Values assemblies, which address a monthly ‘Value’ theme on a bi-annual cycle and incorporate British Values
- In a responsive manner, so that class, school are wider national/global issues can be responded to as required
- So that it incorporates the statutory teaching of Relationships, Sex and Health Education, with lessons delivered in the second half of the summer term, following the DfE approved Christopher Winter programme
