PSHE

Subject Intent

Here at Shenley Primary School, we enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We aim to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, by tackling many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to both school life and the wider community.

We use the Jigsaw scheme of learning which reflects the needs of our pupils; there is a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. The programme aims to provide the children with a sound understanding of risk, and equips them with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. Lessons also include mindfulness, allowing children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

The curriculum divides into six core themes: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams & Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. Our children explore these themes progressively, as they move up through the school.

PSHE is an important part of school assemblies and collective worship where children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.

Children also have the opportunity to celebrate and be involved in International World Awareness days/weeks which are celebrated throughout the school year.
