Reydon School is committed to providing a high quality educational experience for all pupils. At Reydon Primary School, the PSHE programme of study brings together citizenship with personal well-being, while promoting a British values based education. It is intended to support the school in developing a cohesive whole-school approach to personal, social, health and economic well-being (PSHE).
At Reydon Primary School:
Although PSHE is a non- statuatory subject, at Reydon Primary School we feel it is integral that children are exposed to PSHE in both discrete and cross-curricular learning.
This curriculum provides a context for the school to fulfil our responsibilities to:
• Promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of pupils.
• Provide sex and relationships education (SRE).
• Promote British values.
• Provide a safe place for discussion of current, relevant social issues.
• Protect our children from radicalisation.
At Reydon Primary School, children are taught to:
1) to develop their self esteem, confidence and self-awareness to make the right choices.
2) to develop their social skills and social awareness.
3) to make sense of their personal and social experiences.
4) to maintain responsible attitudes towards the maintenance of good physical and mental health, supported by a safe and healthy lifestyle.
5) to develop effective interpersonal relationships and a caring attitude towards others.
6) to develop a caring attitude and sense of responsibility about the environment.
7) to manage and understand their feelings.
8) to understand how society works and the rights and responsibilities involved.
9) to use technology safely and responsibly.
The provision is planned to ensure development in Physical, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), which occurs daily. In provision, children will explore the ideas of relationships, feelings and appropriate behaviours, self-confidence and self-awareness, rules and routines, empathy and restorative justice.
In KS1 and KS2:
We use the SEAL curriculum, as well as a continued focus on British Values in each half term. Topics included in the programme of study are: New Beginnings, Good to Be Me, Getting on and Falling Out (Friendships), People Who Help Us, Rights and Responsibilities, Diversity, Going for Goals, E-Safety and Health.
Assessment criteria has been developed by using the SEAL curriculum, as well as the PSHE Association documents, in order to assess and cover the curriculum accurately. This data is analysed and any gaps that are present are quickly addressed.
Pupil voice is used in forming the curriculum, and we are currently looking at extending the children's PSHE vocabulary. This was based on pupil surveys undertaken at the beginning of the year.
We have many areas of PSHE that occur in our school regularly. These include (but are not limited to): school trips, sports tournaments, PSHE lessons, exposing children to a wide variety of literature and asking them to see things from different perspectives, Open the Book Assemblies, various classroom visitors, Year 6 attending Crucial Crew, our School Council, our Road Safety Officers, our Learning Ambassadors and our newly formed Eco Committee. We are confident our children are developing their PSHE skills both in and out of lessons at every possible opportunity.
