Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) at Stanley St. Peters
At Stanley St Peter’s our main aim is to ‘Unlock Potential and Celebrate Success’ and we believe that PSHE underlines children’s ability to access all areas of school life including learning, building friendships, resolving conflicts and perseverance. PSHE enables children to create and achieve their own ambitions. We want all children – regardless of their background, ability or circumstances - to leave our school with a pleasure and enjoyment for education alongside lifelong skills that can help them be successful in further education and their chosen careers.
What does PSHE look like in our school?
Teachers use their understanding of the needs of their pupils to direct children to build on their pre-existing skills surrounding personal, social, health and economic education. This will enable a confident approach to curriculum objectives.
PSHE must allow flexibility in order to tailor the curriculum to children’s needs. Children must be equipped with a sound understanding of risk and knowledge of skills to make safe decisions.
Organisation and Provision
PSHE is delivered within a whole school approach which includes:
Teachers to use the cornerstones, SEALS and national curriculum to deliver high quality PSHE lessons. In addition, teachers will need to use statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.
In addition to the PHSE taught through the curriculum, we also have whole school events that help to develop the children and give them the opportunity to express and explore PHSE in different ways. Some of the wonderful work and special days that the children have taken part in so far this year include:
We have many more opportunities planned for the future too!
We are immensely proud of our children and how they embrace the PHSE curriculum in their everday lives. It is something that we will continue to work hard on, to ensure that our children are the best version of themselves that they can be!
