Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE)
Through our PSHE curriculum we aim to develop each pupil’s self-esteem as well as their appreciation, acknowledgement and respect of the views, opinions, religions and cultures of other people. They are taught to be increasingly aware about their own rights, respects and responsibilities leading to pupils becoming life-long learners who make a positive contribution to our world, preparing them for life in modern Britain.
We use a programme of study called Jigsaw alongside the Diocesan produced ‘Goodness and Mercy’ syllabus to support the PSHE development in our school. Jigsaw is a comprehensive and engaging programme which enables pupils to explore various topics in a safe and educational environment.
In Foundation Stage 2, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children follow a programme of work each half term concentrating on:
- Being me in the World
- Celebrating Differences
- Dreams and Goals
- Healthy Me
- Changing Me
These topics cover keeping/staying safe, keeping/staying healthy, growing and changing, being responsible, feelings and emotions, computer safety, the working world and everyone who lives in it.
Children in our Early Years are also taught PSHE through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Prime Area Personal, Social and Emotional Development and the Specific Area Understanding the World.
Equality of opportunity at Crowton Christ Church Primary School means that all children, taking account of the 9 protected characteristics, have full access to all the curricular, pastoral and social opportunities offered by our PSHE curriculum.
