Our intent for the PSHE curriculum is to ensure that all children acquire the life skills needed to thrive. At Hadlow Primary School, our PSHE curriculum is accessible to all, and our aim is that it will maximise the outcomes for every child's future. PSHE is embedded in all that we do to enable our children to become safe, caring, resilient, friendly children who can achieve.
Our PSHE curriculum has been built with the aim to support the development of the ‘whole child’, by helping them to understand how they are developing personally and socially as well as promoting their social, mental and physical development. Children will be able to develop the ability to tackle the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Through our discreet lessons as well as wider cross curricular approach to teaching PSHE. 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 Hadlow Primary School we follow SCARF, a comprehensive, fully resourced, progressive PSHE scheme of work for 3-11 year olds. Staff have the ability to adapt the resources provide to suit the needs of each cohort. The programme we cover promotes positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.
This programme meets the Relationships Education and Health Education statutory requirements.
SCARF represents values of Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience and Friendship. British Values are promoted through the overarching aims and objectives of PSHE by supporting our children to become healthy and responsible members of society, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain.
PHSE is taught weekly as part of the wider curriculum. PHSE is also embbeded throughout the entire curriculum and works in conjunction with the Zones of Regulation which is a programme to help children understand and regulate their emotions.
Lessons are comprised of discussions, activities and videos to help children understand the real life application of the skills.
By the time our children leave our school they will:
- be able to approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life
- be on their way to becoming healthy, open minded, respectful, socially and morally responsible, active members of society
- appreciate difference and diversity
- recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty
- be able to understand and manage their emotions
- be able to look after their mental health and well-being
- be able to develop positive, healthy relationship with their peers both now and in the future.
- understand the physical aspects involved in RSE at an age appropriate level
- have respect for themselves and others.
- have a positive self esteem
As part of our on going PSHE provision, we teach Sex and Relationship Education lessons in term 6 of each year group. We use the Coram scheme of work, supplemented by other materials in Year Six.
