At Barley Fields Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. We feel it is an important part of children’s education to help them to understand how they are developing personally and socially.
We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and to appreciate what it means to be a member of the diverse society in which we live. We encourage our children to play a positive role in contributing to school and the wider community.
Although PSHE is a non- statutory subject, at Barley Fields Primary School we feel it is integral that children are exposed to PSHE in both discrete and cross-curricular learning.
Through the teaching of PSHE we aim to:
- Promote the physical, social and emotional well-being of pupils.
- Provide sex and relationships education (RSE).
- Promote British values.
- Provide a safe place for discussion of current, relevant social issues.
- Protect our children from radicalisation.
Our PSHE Curriculum follows a sequence of teaching blocks that progressively build upon one another. We have written our curriculum, not only within the Government guidelines, but considering the needs of our pupils. We incorporate the Rights Respecting Schools agenda, Global Goals and Growth Mindset into all of our lessons.
