PSHE education supports our learners to develop into confident, emotionally intelligent, heathy individuals who are prepared for life’s opportunities and challenges.
Through PSHE, children are aware of how they are growing physically, personally and socially. They are able to explore issues such as friendship, wellbeing and change and learn how to cope with obstacles that life may throw at them.
At Springdale, we want our children to grow up appreciating what it is like to be part of a diverse society and be aware of how to cope with moral, social and cultural issues that may affect them. Children will develop the skills and knowledge needed to successfully manage their lives now and in the future.
At Springdale the children will;
- Develop understanding about what makes a strong and appropriate relationship
- Develop the knowledge about how to keep themselves physically healthy
- Develop the knowledge about how to keep themselves mentally healthy
- Develop the knowledge about how they change as they get older
- Understand how to follow an agreed charter for PSHE discussions in every lesson: We take turns to speak, we use kind and positive words, we listen to each other, we have the right to pass, we only use names when giving compliments or when being positive and we respect each other’s privacy (confidentiality)
We use Jigsaw as the basis of our PSHE Curriculum. Jigsaw consists of six half-term units of work (Puzzles), each containing six lessons (Pieces) covering each academic year.
Every Piece has two Learning Intentions, one specific to PSHE (including Relationships and Health Education) and the other designed to develop emotional literacy and social skills.
Each year group studies the same unit at the same time (at their own level), building sequentially through the school year, facilitating whole-school learning themes.
The key concepts developed through the units are:
*identity and belonging *asking for help *similarities and differences * growth mindset * self-esteem *teamwork *family and friendships *lifecycles *managing change.
Our safety curriculum is taught through every half-term. The following areas are covered:
- body safety including consent,
- stranger danger
- road safety, rail safety
- fire and electrical safety
- water and beach safety
- sun safety
