Through our PSHEE programme we aim to develop our pupils’ self-awareness, positive self-esteem, resilience and confidence to:
Stay as healthy as possible
Keep themselves and others safe
Have worthwhile and fulfilling relationships
Respect differences between people
Develop independence and responsibility
Play an active role as members of a democratic society
Make the most of their own and others abilities
Manage normal stresses of life
We aim to develop social and emotional learning skills and vocabulary which will enable pupils to make positive choices throughout life. The curriculum has been designed to facilitate the development of self-control, emotional awareness and interpersonal problem-solving skills. We recognise that it is important to empower children to know that all feelings are ok to have and to have both the vocabulary to name the emotion as well as have strategies to manage comfortable and uncomfortable feelings. We feel certain that our curriculum has a positive impact on pupil's self-esteem, emotional intelligence and self control, as well as academic engagement.
IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PSHEE CURRICULUM
We have developed a curriculum map to ensure all elements of both the statutory relationships and Wellbeing curriculum and the non-statutory elements that we have chosen to include in our programme of study. These include elements of Personal, Social and Economic education.
We follow a programme called PATHS@ and most of our Relationships education is delivered through this. The programme is a social-cognitive programme progressively covering the following social emotional learning skills in a developmentally appropriate way:
Social problem solving
Peer relations and self esteem
The programme is designed to help children:
develop specific strategies that promote reflective responses and mature thinking skills
become more self-motivated and enthusiastic about learning
obtain information necessary for social understanding and pro-social behaviour
increase their ability to generate creative alternative solutions to problems
learn to anticipate and evaluate situations, behaviours and consequences
In addition, we have identified other curriculum areas where we can teach aspects of the PSHE education curriculum. These include Science, Maths, P.E. and our cross curricular Big Pictures. Other aspects of the Relationships and Health education, not covered in these subjects, are covered using the Christopher Winter project lesson materials.
We believe that the breadth of study included in our provision provides our children with the foundation for a healthy, happy adult life. The Paths curriculum builds incrementally over the key stages to ensure children have the resilience they need to face the challenges life throws at them and supports good mental health. The wider curriculum ensures that children learn to understand and take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing. Finally, through our programme looking at the wider world we aim to broaden children’s horizons and develop aspirations.
