The PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) scheme of work at Sneinton C of E School has been developed using guidelines and advice from Healthy Schools Nottingham and PSE Association.
PSHE is delivered through a range of teaching styles which include group discussions (whole class or small groups), circle time, drama, problem solving and stories.
We cover three main areas:
Health and Wellbeing;
- Relationship and Sex education (RSE)
- Staying Safe (including Drugs Education)
- Keeping Healthy.
- E – Safety
- SEAL (Social and emotional aspects of learning)
Living in the Wider World;
- Financial Education
The school’s aims are to:
- Develop knowledge and understanding of important PSE ideas, processes and skills and relate these to everyday experiences, with progression for each year group.
- Encourage children to be curious about the things they see and experience and explore the world around them.
- Provide opportunities where our children can apply key skills to enhance their understanding of PSE concepts, positive attitudes and values.
- Use and understand appropriate social, emotional and behavioural vocabulary to communicate ideas; enabling pupils to manage different emotions and develop strategies to resolve conflict.
- Develop the attitudes of critical reflection, enjoyment, curiosity, perseverance, co-operation, turn taking, creativity, inventiveness, open mindedness and willingness to tolerate uncertainty.
- Develop learners’ self-esteem and a sense of personal responsibility and awareness of their rights.
- Promote self-respect, respect for others and celebrate diversity.
- Equip learners to live safe, healthy lives.
- Prepare learners for the choices and opportunities of lifelong learning.
- Empower learners to participate in their schools and communities as active responsible citizens locally, nationally and globally.
- Prepare learners for the challenges, choices and responsibilities of work and adult life.
- Promote our children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.
