Through the teaching of PSHE, we will promote positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement. We will use language and engage in activities that promote thinking skills and debate, rather than ‘right or wrong’ answers We will promote a positive, nurturing learning environment.
PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent members of society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially.and tackles moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.The children will learn about rights and responsibilities and understand and appreciate what it means to be part of a diverse society, Children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
All about PSHE at KPS
At Kingsbury Primary School, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to encourage mutual respect, responsibility and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere. The teaching and learning of PSHE supports and upholds this vision.
In the world we live in, children face a range of pressures from family, friends, the local community, the wider society and from the media. It is important that we equip our pupils with the knowledge and strategies to cope with these pressures.
We aim to promote a healthy and positive growth mindset in order to promote an ‘I can’ attitude and to foster success both academic and non-academic.
From key stage 1 upwards, PSHE will be evidenced in the red curriculum book using the correct colour code.
Learning intentions will be taken from Coram SCARF planning units
Where lessons are not a written activity, flip chart notes can be made and displayed or photos can be taken.
We use the Coram SCARF half termly units for the teaching of PSHE
SCARF: Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship
‘There's now a proven link between pupils' health and wellbeing, and their academic progress. Crucial skills and positive attitudes developed through comprehensive Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) are critical to ensuring children are effective learners. Teachers tell us that they recognise how important these skills and attitudes are in unlocking pupils' potential, helping to raise achievement and closing the gap in educational attainment.’
