PSHCE education supports pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepares children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
The building blocks for this subject are set out in Statutory Framework for EYFS: Personal, social and emotional development which involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.
Three core themes in Key stage one and two underpin the curriculum for this subject within which there will be broad overlap and flexibility:
1. Health and Wellbeing
3. Living in the Wider World
Health and Wellbeing - physical and mental including social and emotional aspects of learning
Relationships - respect for ourselves and others, having the confidence to make the right choices based on knowledge and sound understanding of risk
Living in the Wider World will include financial education to develop understanding of where money comes from and how to manage personal finances and also Citizenship education to understand what it means to be part of a community in terms of how to behave and the ability to contribute positively to society.
What does it look like at KSPA?
We integrate advice and guidance from the PSHE association and the SEAL programme to ensure a well rounded PSHCE education for our children. Some aspects of PSHCE are taught as discrete lessons whilst others are incorporated into the Creative Curriculum.
