PSHE Statement of Intent

At Fitzwilliam Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles 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.

 

Subject Leader Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact Overview

Subject: PSHE

Subject Leader: Susan Harrison

 

The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to 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.

 School has identified key intentions that drive our PSHE curriculum. At Fitzwilliam Primary School our PSHE curriculum intentions are:

Intent

Implementation

Impact

Intention 1:           

To build a PSHE curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which enables children to access thee wider curriculum and to prepare children to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community.

Children will know more, remember more and understand more. 

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.

 

PSHE Association evaluated research ‘A case for PSHE’ indicates that PSHE when taught well - helps keep children and young people safe, physically and emotionally healthy and prepared for life and work.

. PSHE Association evaluated research ‘PSHE, Academic Attainment and Employability’   indicates that growing evidence to suggest that the skills and attributes acquired through PSHE education have a significant impact on pupils' academic achievement, employability and future life chances All subjects have a l

  • 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.

  • Knowledge Organisers

Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use across the wider curriculum.

  • Knowledge Working Walls

Knowledge Working Walls in each classroom exemplify the terminology used throughout the teaching of PSHE, BV and SMSC which enables pupils to make links across the wider curriculum.

  • Wider Curriculum

All subjects make a link to PSHE, BV, SMSC and the language is used consistently by all staff.

  • Displays across school

PSHE, BV and SMSC displays throughout school reinforce the PSHE curriculum enabling children to make links.

  • Assemblies

Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies always make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSC.

  • Children will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty.
  • Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with national and behaviour will be good.
  • Children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum.

 

Intention 2:

To build a PSHE curriculum that incorporates the understanding of RSE so that children know more, remember more and understand more. As a result children will know how 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.

 

PSHE Association evaluated research ‘Effective Prevent education’ in partnership with Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP), outlines 11 key principles of effective practice in prevention education and the positive impact of these been addressed in school.

  • Clear and comprehensive RSE scheme of work within PSHE in line with the new recommendations of teaching RSE in National Curriculum (Feb 2019)

The teaching and learning of RSE is planned explicitly within each year group.

  • RSE programme of work is explicitly resourced.

Children will become more aware of RSE and have the real purpose of it.

  • Parent Consultation

Parents are informed of the content of the RSE programme of work during the class transition meetings and further support / clarification is given if required.

 

  • Children will develop positive and healthy relationship with their peers both now and in the future.
  • Children will understand the physical aspects involved in RSE at an age appropriate level.
  • Children will have respect for themselves and others.
  • Children will have positive body images.

 

At Fitzwilliam we deliver the PSHE curriculum by utilising first hand expereince and sharing good practice. However, we are aware that the delivered curriculum must reflect the needs of our pupils. We expect teachers to use a PSHE programme to equip pupils with a sound understanding of risk and with the knowledge and skills necessary to make safe and informed decisions. We believe that the purpose of PSHE education is to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum, the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: ie, drug education, financial education, citizenship, personal safety, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.

At Fitzwilliam we believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and needs to be taught at least weekly. This enables staff to ensure full coverage of PSHE and SEAL (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) is taught in their year group. There are always occasions where teachers may feel it necessary to teach PSHE as a result of an issue arisen in their own class. PSHE is integral to the development of children values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing community. PSHE is an important part of school assemblies were childrens spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challanged and nurtured.
