What is PSHE?
PSHE stands for personal, social and health education. It is an important part of your child's national curriculum learning and covers a broad range of social and cultural subjects and issues.
P.S.H.E. and Citizenship Education enables pupils to become healthy, independent and responsible members of our society.
Through our teaching of P.S.H.E. and Citizenship we will ensure that pupils experience a wide range of enjoyable activities that will help to prepare them for adult life by;
1. Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities
2. Preparing to play an active role as citizens
3. Developing a healthy, safer lifestyle
4. Developing good relationship and respecting the differences between people.
At St Stephens, we have a whole school approach to PSHE, with all year groups working on the same theme each half term, in addition to this, some whole school assemblies are also linked in especially at the beginning of a new theme or term.
We aim to teach the children information and skills to empower them and develop personal awareness. The curriculum brings together PSHE education as well as emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development
What are the themes?
Autumn 1 – Being me in my world
Autumn 2 – Celebrating Difference (including Anti-Bullying Week)
Spring 1 – Dreams and Goals
Spring 2 – Healthy Me
Summer 1 – Relationships
Summer 2 – Changing Me
What happens during a lesson?
During a PSHE lesson we establish a safe, open and positive environment based upon trust between all members of the class, adults and children alike, this is achieved by everyone following these rules
We take turns to speak
We use kind and positive words
We listen to each other
We have the right to pass
We only use names when giving complements
We respect each other’s privacy
A variety of methods of teaching are used including;
Discussion (whole class, small group, partner)
How do we record our work?
We record our PSHE work in a class celebration book, it is a portfolio of our class work and reflections through each topic, you can see examples of our books from Nursery through to Year 6 on this page.
