Personal, Social and Health Education (PHSE)
At Wansdyke, the intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver an accessible curriculum that will maximise outcomes for all children, so that they know more, remember more and understand more. This will be done through giving children opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities.
As a result of our curriculum, every child will become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
The school uses the PSHE Association, which has a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. The PSHE curriculum has three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. It also incorporates the RSE policy and SOW and identifies links to British Values, Cultural Capital, SMSC and schools key skills into the curriculum. Children will have access to key knowledge, language and meaning in order to understand PSHE and to use across the wider curriculum. Whole school and Key Stage assemblies always make a link to PSHE, British Values and SMSC.
Children will know more and remember more about PSHE. Children will recognise and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty. Children will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be at least in-line with national and behaviour will be at least good. The large majority of children will achieve age related expectations across the wider curriculum.
