PSHE

Intent

At Moggerhanger primary school we believe that Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. It helps children and young people to stay healthy and safe, while preparing them to make the most of life and work. When taught well, PSHE education also helps pupils to achieve their academic potential. Throughout our PSHE curriculum we endeavour to support our pupils to become advocates for themselves and others, learn how to respond to challenging situations, as well as understand changes they may experience throughout life. Our PSHE curriculum also supports our pupils to know how to keep safe and remain safe, giving them confidence to remain in control and active citizens in their own lives as well as the lives of our local community.

 

Implementation

At Moggerhanger Primary school, Our PSHE Curriculum is guided by the PSHE Association schemes of work. During key stages 1 and 2, PSHE education offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences which reflect pupils’ increasing independence and physical and social awareness, as they move through the primary phase. It builds on the skills that pupils started to acquire during the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online. Our PSHE education helps pupils to manage the physical and emotional changes at puberty, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities. We carefully order our units of work to ensure pupils learn the right knowledge and skillsa at the right time through our mixed age classes, while also splitting classes into their respective year groups when this is more appropriate.

 

Impact:

Throughout our PSHE Curriciulum pupils continually work towards answering a range of questions that support them throughout their life long learning journey. Within each unit a series of ‘I Can’ statements are used to measure success for pupils. Teachers use their judgement based on formative and summative tools to assess pupils progress and outcomes in PSHE. These outcomes then support our termly Teacher Assessments.
