PSHE

 

Intent

We want our children at Blair Peach to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and to realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.

 

We believe that good PSHE education helps children to develop their learning, that results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which will enable the children to prepare to be a responsible global citizen now and, in the future, when they have a role to play within a global community.

 

We want children to develop a confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions, whilst showing tolerance of others, their beliefs, religions and life choices.  In PSHE, they will have the opportunity, through a broad and balanced curriculum to develop the skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe and to build positive, respectful relationships with other people.    

 

Implementation

Blair Peach uses the London Borough of Ealing PSHE scheme of work.  This includes the overarching themes of health and wellbeing, living in the wider world and relationships where safeguarding, SMSC and British values are the golden threads throughout. Each theme begins with a whole school assembly.

 

The recently updated scheme of work includes many new topics including migration, charity, first aid, mental health and resilience, homelessness, drugs and alcohol education and relationships education.

 

PSHE lessons are 45mins – 1 hour each week for all year groups year 1 – 6. All lessons in each year group start off with a power point which recaps on what PSHE stands for, reminds them of the British Values, explains the PANTS rule and describes the ROCK rules (respect, openness, confidential and kind) to be used in the class lessons.

 

EYFS children benefit from receiving their PSHE interwoven throughout their school day.

 

Children are also made aware of their Rights though the UNICEF Rights of a Child. Children have the opportunities to learn their Rights through class charters that are regularly referred to in class and by participating in Article days and activities.

 

Impact

Children will know more and remember more about PSHE. The children will recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual Respect, Rule of Law and Liberty.

 

They will demonstrate a ready willingness and ability to try new things, push themselves and persevere when things get tough. Children will have a good understanding of how to keep themselves safe and healthy and how to develop good relationships. They will have an appreciation of what it means to be a positive member of a diverse, multicultural society. They will have a strong self-awareness, interlinked with compassion of others.

 

Children will have a healthy outlook towards school with attendance to be in line with national and behaviour to be good.

PSHE refers to Personal, Social, Health and Economic education. Unlike other subjects within the curriculum PSHE enables children to learn through a holistic approach equipping them with a knowledge of everyday life and risks they may encounter.

 

The PSHE scheme of work is fully planned and resourced for EYFS to Year 6.

The scheme of work is divided into three themes – one theme for each term.

Each theme begins with a whole school assembly and ends with another whole school assembly. This is important as it ensures that all pupils are covering the same theme at the same time and creates a whole school approach to PSHE.

 

In the Autumn term the theme is Health and Well-being

 

Children will be taught:

 

  • What is meant by a healthy lifestyle
  • How to maintain physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing
  • How to manage risks to physical and emotional health and wellbeing

  • How to make informed choices about health and wellbeing and to recognise sources of help with this
