At Hunts Cross Primary, personal, social health education (PSHE) enables our children to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, critical thinking and become independent members of society. It aims to allow new experiences, meeting new challenges and finding themselves in unfamiliar situations. We strive to promote understanding of how to keep ourselves safe in an ever changing world. Our children are encouraged to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider curriculum. As a school, we believe that all children are individuals, and therefore we aim to promote diversity and celebrate all achievements.
Our PSHE curriculum is designed as a spiral curriculum in which the children revisit key skills each year. They are given regular opportunities to reflect upon their learning through discussion and worry boxes. At the beginning of each new topic, an initial activity is carried out to gauges pupils’ starting points in terms of their existing knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs.
To build a PSHE curriculum that allows children to develop skills to critically question information presented to them, and are able to draw upon resilience strategies for the ever changing world in which they live.
