At All Saints we are committed to providing a high-quality educational experience for all children. Our creative curriculum determines and underpins the whole Christian ethos of our school.
Our personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum brings together citizenship with personal well-being, whilst promoting fundamental British values alongside our school values. PSHE is taught through discreet lessons and is integrated into our subject curriculums. It underpins all out of the classroom activities including assemblies, educational visits and extra-curricular clubs. We offer a cohesive whole-school approach which enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible citizens.
Our PSHE program supports children in enabling them to fully embrace after-school opportunities and become better members of society. They are encouraged to become a member of the School Council, a subject-related ambassador, part of the worship team or a prefect.
PSHE is integrated into our creative curriculum and through our school values. We promote:
Our PSHE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils thus preparing them for life in the wider world. All Saints children are taught and provided with opportunities:
- To develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future.
- To explore, clarify and if necessary, challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
- To develop skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives.
- To develop positive personal attributes such as resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem, and empathy.
The provision is planned to ensure development in Physical, Social and Emotional Development (PSED), which occurs daily. In provision, children will explore the ideas of relationships, feelings and appropriate behaviours, self-confidence and self-awareness, rules and routines, empathy and restorative justice.
In KS1 and KS2:
We use the PSHE Association to inform our curriculum planning. Topics included in the programme of study are: Healthy Lifestyles, Growing and Changing, Keeping Safe, Feelings and Emotions, Healthy Relationships, Valuing Difference, Rights and Responsibilities, Environment and Money.
We encourage children to demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual Respect, Rule of Law and Liberty to their daily lives. We enable them to have a healthy outlook towards school and an increased awareness of mental well-being. As a result, children will be able to achieve success across the wider curriculum. Teachers provide discreet PSHE lessons and assess pupil’s progress using the PSHE Association guidelines, whilst pupil voice provides a measure of the children’s understanding.
