PSHE

At Yattendon CofE Primary School, we believe that Personal, Social, Health Education (PSHE) is crucial in supporting children in their personal development, and underpinning learning in the classroom, school, and in the wider community. 

PSHE education is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy, safe and be able to form and maintain positive relationships with others.

Children develop an understanding of the ever-changing world in which they live, develop the skills necessary to take an active role in their community and manage their life effectively. 

 

We aim to use PSHE to develop our school learning values of co-operation, resilience, responsibility and curiosity to grow as learners in a happy and caring atmosphere.

Within our teaching of PSHE, we also cover a range of Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) teaching in order to prepare our children for life in Modern Britain.

Below is an overview of our current PSHE curriculum.

We use a number of resources to deliver a well-rounded PSHE curriculum, tailored to the needs of our children.

 

The JIGSAW approach follows six topics: Being Me in My World, Celebrating Difference, Dreams and Goals, Healthy Me, Relationships and Changing Me. These sessions have a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. Within each lesson, a mindfulness activity allows children to advance their emotional awareness, concentration and focus.

 

Each year, we participate in the national Anti-Bullying Week and Odd Socks Day. Through a range of activities, we raise awareness of bullying of children and young people, in schools and elsewhere, and aim to empower our children with tools to prevent and respond to bullying.

 

In Robin Class, children use the NSPCC PANTS resources to help them understand that their body belongs to them, and they should tell someone they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried.

 

 

 

UK Parliament Week allows our children to connect with the UK Parliament and democracy in the UK. Through activities, our children explore what democracy means to them and their community. 

 

In Key Stage 2, children use the St John Ambulance resources to learn basic first aid skills for common injuries.

What do our children think of PSHE?

 

"I enjoy the Calm Me time because it makes me focus ready for the lesson."

"I'm the only boy in the class who doesn't like football so I sometimes feel left out. Jigsaw makes me feel happy because I fit in with everyone."

"I like Jigsaw because it will help me to make good decisions when I'm older. The Calm Me time also helps me to relax."

"I like the Calm Me bit because everyone is calm and ready to learn."

"I like how everyone gets involved. Everyone's opinions are treated equally."

"It makes me feel together with everyone in my class."

"I talk more in Jigsaw sessions - not in a bad way! I'm feeling more confident to share my opinions."
