PSHE Curriculum Intent

At Southfield Park, our PSHE curriculum is designed to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills children need to manage their lives, now and in the future. The curriculum embodies a whole school approach to PSHE which develops the qualities and attributes our children need to thrive and shine as individuals, family members, members of our school and wider community. Our PSHE curriculum equips children to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives.

In following our PSHE curriculum, the children will learn about their own mental health and wellbeing and about positive and healthy relationships. Children will be able reflect on their own experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

PSHE is taught as a discrete subject as well as being woven through the school as part of our SHINE ethos and within other curriculum areas. It incorporates three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. The children’s skills and learning are planned to develop progressively to match the children’s age and stage of development.

Children act as ambassadors to promote anti-bullying and wellbeing strategies, to represent their class in the School Council and in Year 6, the children are all given responsibilities to contribute to our school community.

Assemblies and interactive whole-school displays are used to help children learn about key areas and current events, and to respond to emerging themes.
