PSHE curriculum statement
PSHE at Badsworth C of E Junior and Infant School is a subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. Well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
At Badsworth, we aim for a high quality PSHE curriculum which develops skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes developed by The PSHE Association: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
Our curriculum has been adapted to ensure opportunities for all learners are equal, irrespective of SEN, gender, ethnicity, background or beliefs. We aim to do this by placing a greater focus on practical role-play scenarios where children have the opportunity to develop their language acquisition skills. This helps us to place a greater focus on real-life experiences and understanding of different social scenarios. This ensures all learners have an equal chance to succeed, regardless of language gaps and written barriers to learning.
At Badsworth, we use the PSHE Association curriculum, which has been amended to meet the specific needs of our children. Our curriculum focuses upon the three main strands: relationships; living in the wider world; and health and well-being. These focuses are re-visited each year throughout the curriculum. Our framework for PSHE embeds those three strands — health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world, as well as including work on the statutory aspects of the Relationships and Sex Education, and Health Education guidance.
Each year, we aim to build upon current skills, ensuring it is age appropriate and relevant to the needs of our children. As a school, we actively seek opportunities to enrich our curriculum with real-life experiences and scenarios. Within each year group, we have invited a range of guest speakers, such as local police, councillors, care workers, nurses and other important members of our community who help to bring our learning to life. We are always actively looking for new and inspiring experiences which can enhance our PSHE provision.
PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help 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. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
We strive to provide our children with learning opportunities across and beyond the curriculum, in specific lessons, discussion and debate, special school projects and other activities that enrich pupils’ experiences. It 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. At Badsworth, we also embrace the in which PSHE supports many of the principles of safeguarding and its close links to the school’s Safeguarding, SMSC and British Values Policies.
The personal and social development of pupils underpins our curriculum. Through a carefully planned programme, supported by all who work in or with the school, we want children to leave Badsworth ready for the transition into secondary school and adult life.
