PSHE – curriculum information

PSHE Curriculum Overview

At Wansbeck Primary School, we see Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) as being at the centre of all that we do. This prepares pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of schooling and later life.

The promotion of pupils’ personal development (which includes their social development) is a fundamental aspect of education and underpins all other learning. We encompass this daily in our classrooms with class circles to build community and our understanding of our feelings, as well as in our weekly PSHE lessons where we learn about our; mental health, physical health, friends and family, responsibility, our community, and being safe online.

Through our curriculum, our school environment and our school ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being, which helps them to form and maintain worthwhile and healthy relationships based on respect for themselves and others at home, school, work and in the wider community.

We believe that every member of our school community should have equal opportunities to reach their full potential and strive for greatness. Our school embraces Restorative Practice (RP) as a way to empower all staff members to be successful and effective practitioners within each classroom where they can raise standards and achievement across the whole school and shape aspirational, motivated and responsible pupils. In turn, this promotes children’s understanding of the wider world and how their feelings may change and develop, and provides them with the opportunity to discuss this range of emotions in healthy, positive ways with staff and their peers.

PSHE is taught in our school once per week from Foundation Stage to Year 6.
