PSHE Lead: Mrs Evans
PSHE at Bolton-by-Bowland Primary School
At Bolton-By-Bowland Primary, we are all aware of the important of the PSHE curriculum. Our intent is to build a PSHE curriculum, which develops learning, and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, enabling children to access the wider curriculum, work collaboratively with others and make a positive contribution to the life of the school. Our curriculum will prepare children to be a global citizen in a diverse society and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. The curriculum reflects the needs of our pupils. We have built on the statutory content outlined in statutory guidance and follow the ‘PSHE association’ model of work. Teaching and learning in the classroom shows progression across the school within the PSHE core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Each phase builds on the vocabulary, knowledge and skills taught in the previous to allow children to acquire further knowledge, know more and remember more. Our PSHE curriculum incorporates an age appropriate understanding of RSE, as set out in the statutory guidance, enabling all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.
We strive to provide our children with learning opportunities across and beyond the curriculum, in specific lessons, circle time, special school projects and other activities that enrich pupils’ experiences. We use The PSHE Association, 1decision and Picture News, to support the implementation of our PSHE curriculum. PSHE is an important part of school assemblies were children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.
All children understand the importance of PSHE, SMSC and British Values and the effects it can have on life in and out of school. By teaching pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience and empathy, our effective PSHE programme tackles barriers to learning and raises aspirations. By the time they leave our school, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our learners to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It helps them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Our curriculum allows pupils to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
