“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Our PSHE Curriculum is designed to strengthen both our academic curriculum and our strong Christian ethos. It is designed to be accessible to all children as they progress through their Primary Education and their life. We intend that our curriculum will maximise outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more with Christ at the centre of our learning. As a result of this, they will grow to become healthy, independent responsible members of a society who know how to keep safe. We want our children to understand how they are developing personally, spiritually as well as socially and give them the tools they need to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that they face as they grow up. We know that our children face a number of challenges in their everyday lives, and we see it as our role to support them in developing a good moral compass as our Christian faith permeates through.
As a school, we believe in the importance of voice and we encourage our children to speak up, ask questions and challenge when something doesn’t feel right. This is promoted heavily through our PSHE curriculum.
We provide our children with opportunities to learn about their 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 using our Christian Values.
Knowledge and skills are mapped and planned for, using SCARF, a programme of study which ensures appropriate developmental progression from Reception to Year 6. Due to the nature of some of the topics delivered through our PSHE Curriculum, we deliver the content in smaller groups with age specific content as suggested by SCARF, therefore we have carefully timetabled lessons to avoid year groups mixing as is the way with other areas of the curriculum.
