As a school, PSHEC is considered a crucial part of the curriculum and underpins, along with the Christian Values, all aspects of school life. PSHEC is the planned provision in schools for promoting the emotional, social and health development of children and young people. It includes:
Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of the school and community. In doing so, they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn how society is organised and governed and they experience the process of democracy in school through the school council and eco council. We teach them about rights and responsibilities and they learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a diverse multicultural society.
For the Social and Emotional Well-being element of PSHE we use the SEAL materials which each cover five main themes: Self-Awareness, Managing Feelings, Empathy, Motivation and Social Skills. These themes are covered in the following units which help the children to gain these skills: New Beginnings, Getting on and Falling Out, Going for Goals, Good to be me, Relationships and Changes.
Other elements of the PSHE Curriculum are Road Safety, Sex and Relationships and Drugs and Alcohol Education. Please see the files below for these Curriculum Overviews.
We held an Anti Bullying Week and put together a book to show the great learning that took place.
