Personal, Social & Health Education is a non-statutory, cross curricular element of school life which promotes the personal and social development of the children. It helps children to understand themselves and others.
The key areas taught are:
- Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities
- Developing a healthy, safe lifestyle
- Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people
These skills are encouraged and developed implicitly throughout the school day via cross-curricular links and through everyday situations. Specific lessons and assemblies are ways we use to teach PSHE.
In Key Stage 1 we aim to provide enrichment, creativity and enjoyment for all pupils through a varied curriculum and range of experiences, with high expectations for all.
We follow the 2014 National Curriculum for England for the teaching of English, Mathematics, Science, Art and Design, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music and Physical Education. Our curriculum encompasses all the statutory elements of the 2014 National Curriculum for England. We have also included many of the non-statutory elements that benefit our pupils and have further adapted the curriculum, as recommended, to match the needs and interests of our pupils.
Where appropriate we use a cross curricular approach to maximise links between subjects and teach the skills required by our pupils through interesting and informative topics.
Termly updates are sent out to parents with more details of the curriculum being covered
