PSHE lessons will prepare children for being good citizens. They will develop emotional intelligence and the ability to articulate their feelings in order to maintain good mental health as well as understanding the importance of their physical health and being healthy.
PSHE is not a statutory subject in the National Curriculum. However, the National Curriculum states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice’. The intent at Dog Kennel Hill Primary for PSHE education is to use the starting points of the children to provide the experiences, knowledge and skills to become good citizens in the future.
At Dog Kennel Hill, the children will be given the vocabulary to be able to articulate their feelings. The intention is to promote mental wellbeing and empathy across the school and into the community. The children in our school have a range of family backgrounds and life experiences. It is important that we build upon these experiences to provide understanding of the diversity in our country as a whole in terms of race, religion, relationships. The intent is to develop tolerant, respectful young people, prepared for their future lives. PSHE also develops the understanding of health and fitness. In our school, we will give children the knowledge to be able to make informed choices with regards to diet and exercise. In our increasingly technological world, the children in Dog Kennel Hill Primary use online resources frequently both in and outside of school. Our intent is to ensure all children are able to stay safe, making the correct choices about their use of technology.
The planning for PSHE lessons at Dog Kennel Hill Primary was based upon plans designed by the PSHE Association to support planning a personalised and flexible PSHE education scheme of work over the course of a school year. It is used to enable us to develop our pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding based on the three core themes of the PSHE Association Programme of Study for PSHE education: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
The class teachers deliver a PSHE lesson each week. PSHE is delivered through a range of teaching styles which include:
At appropriate times in the year, there are themed weeks eg: Enterprise Week where the children focus on British Values and economic wellbeing. In addition to the usual lessons, the children from Year 3 to 6 have the opportunity to apply, interview and become “Apprentices” such as:
