PSHE Curriculum Intent
At Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy, the aim of PSHE is to deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. We aim for all children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We provide opportunities for children to explore moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up which in turn supports the development of essential skills and provides the opportunity for children to make safe and informed choices. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Strong links are made with our curriculum drivers, our School Values as well as fundamental British values.
PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential.
PSHE education becomes statutory for all schools from September 2020 under the Children and Social Work Act 2017. Although due to COVID Schools this has been extended to September 2021 to ensure all aspects of consultation , policy and resource materials are explored and agreed.
The Department for Education published Statutory Guidance for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education
in June 2019. This sets out what schools must cover from September 2020 (though not all they should cover as part of broader PSHE education).
The PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education supports schools to provide a comprehensive programme that integrates, but is not limited to, this statutory content.
Our broader PSHE programme covers economic wellbeing, careers and enterprise education, as well as education for personal safety, including assessing and managing risk.
The three core themes:
CORE THEME 1: HEALTH AND WELLBEING
CORE THEME 2: RELATIONSHIPS
CORE THEME 3: LIVING IN THE WIDER WORLD
In Early Years:
Continuous Provision is carefully planned to ensure development in Physical, Social and Emotional Development (PSED). Opportunities are carefully planned to encourage children will explore the ideas of relationships, feelings and appropriate behaviours, self-confidence and self-awareness, rules and routines and empathy.
Our PSHE curriculum is designed to encourage a progression of children's understanding and skills. By the end of their time at Wolverley Sebright, we aim for all children to be well-rounded citizens who can make safe and informed choices in life as well as play an active role in society.
