PSHE & RSE

PSHE and RSE West Walker Primacy School

At West Walker Primary School the aim of our Personal, Social, Health and Economic Eduation (PSHE) sessions is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child, enabling them to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. To help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. 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. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

Intent

  • To build a PSHE curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which enables children to access the wider curriculum and to prepare children to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community.
  • To design a curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the duties of the NC whereby schools must provide a ‘balanced and broadly-based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life.
  • To build a PSHE curriculum that incorporates the understanding of RSE which enables all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.
  • To design, and resource, an RSE programme of work within the PSHE curriculum which enables pupils to explore the complexity of the relationships they will have both now and throughout their lives.

Implementation

  • Clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum.

The school curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. The Scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British Values, SMSC and schools Key skills into the curriculum.
