PSHRE Curriculum intent and policies

    

Statement of Intent for Personal, Social, Health, Relationships and Economic Education

 

'PSHRE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our pupils with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our pupils are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.'

 

Through our teaching of PSHRE we want our pupils to :

 

 

  • have high expectations and belief in themselves each and every day;
  • be self-motivated to acquire comprehensive mastery skills in communication, reading, writing and mathematics, and to be committed to achieve the highest possible standards in all other subjects;
  • develop the curiosity and focus to build, retain and apply key knowledge and skills across the curriculum, with increasing fluency and independence;
  • persevere when facing challenges with confidence and optimism;
  • contribute to our school and community spirit, both today and in the future;
  • show tolerance and respect for all differences and diversity in our school, neighbourhood and the wider world

 

To deliver our PSHRE curriculum we use a programme of study from the PSHE association which is adapted to suit the needs of our pupils. We supplement this using resources and activities from the 'Jigsaw' programme. 

Each class has their own 'Jigsaw' character and weekly 'Jigsaw' certificates are awarded weekly in our pupil of the week assembly.
