St Mary's Bentworth

Church of England Primary School

Love, Respect, Belong

PSHE

Intent

PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) underpins all the teaching and learning that we do at St Mary's. Our school values of 'Love, Respect and Belonging' are reinforced through our Survive and Blossom well-being programme and as the bedrock of our learning.  Through our PSHE lessons and wider curriculum, children learn about citizenship, relationships with others, health and safety and how to make a positive impact on the world around them. We also develop children's abilities to reflect on their learning and build on their skills of perseverance and resilience.

 

Implementation

PSHE at St. Mary’s includes high quality RSE (Relationship and Sex Education) as required by law. RSE and PSHE is lifelong learning about physical, moral and emotional development. The aim of RSE is to provide children with age appropriate information, explore attitudes and values and develop skills in order to empower them to make positive decisions about their relationships, friendships and health related behaviour.  For PSHE (including RSE) we use a long term plan developed by One Decision (a provider kite marked by the PSHE Association) and adapted for our children. Each year group will be taught separately to ensure age appropriate topics and material.  This is in parallel with our strong, compassionate survive and blossom programme, aimed to support pupils as they move through the school and beyond. 

 

Impact

When pupils leave St Mary’s, they will have developed key skills and attributes within our Values of Love, Respect and Belong.  They will have assimilated tools to help them cope during adversity and know how to enjoy and celebrate success. The intrinsic nature of our PSHE as a thread throughout provides an opportunity for pupils to see development as continuous and rewarding.
