Our Programmes of study in PSHCE aims to develop essential skills and attributes based around three core learning themes: health and well-being, relationships and living in the wider world.
Pupils in Key stage one learn about themselves as developing individuals and as members of the wider community. They learn the rules and skills for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for demonstrating positive attitude to learning. Pupils are given opportunities to show that they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. They begin to learn about their own and other people's feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of other children and older people. As members of a class and school community they learn social skills, such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, resolve simple arguments and resist bullying. They begin to take an active part in the life of the school and the school community.
Pupils in key stage 2 learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of the wider community. They become more mature, independent and self-confident. They learn about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it. They develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions. They learn how to take part more fully in school and community activities. As they begin to develop into young adults, they face the changes of puberty and transfer to secondary school with support and encouragement from their school. They learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment; to take more responsibility, individually and as a group, for their own learning; and to resist bullying.
