At Broomgrove Junior School, we aim to equip children with essential skills for life by developing the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to understand how to protect themselves and enhance their own wellbeing. In our PSHE lessons, children learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in society around them. We intend to prepare them for life in society now and in the future.
The topics we teach have their foundations in seeing each and everybody’s value in society, from appreciation of others in units such as Diverse Britain, to promoting strong and positive views of self in Think Positive and Be Yourself. We cover a wide range of the social and emotional aspects of learning, enabling children to develop their identity and self-esteem as active, confident members of their community. The themes and topics in our PSHE curriculum support social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide children with protective teaching on essential safeguarding issues, developing their knowledge of when and how they can ask for help.
Our programme of study fulfils the requirements of 2020 Statutory Relationships and Health Education and is fully in line with the Learning Outcomes and Core Themes provided by the PSHE Association Programme of Study which is widely used by schools in England and is recommended and referred to by the DfE in all key documentation relating to PSHE provision in schools.
The programme of study is categorised in three sections:
These core areas are taught in a spiral curriculum that revisits each theme every two years. This enables children to recall and build upon previous learning, exploring the underlying principles of PSHE education regularly at a depth that is appropriate for the age and stage of the child. Lessons are delivered in a creative manner, using many approaches such as role play, discussion and games with groups of various sizes. These activities enable children to build confidence and resilience.
At Broomgrove Junior School, we prioritise physical and mental health and wellbeing, by providing children with skills to evaluate and understand their own wellbeing needs, practise self-care and contribute positively to the wellbeing of those around them. Children are enabled to develop the vocabulary and confidence needed to clearly articulate their thoughts and feelings in a climate of openness, trust and respect, and know when and how they can seek the support of others. They will apply their understanding of society to their everyday interactions, from the classroom to the wider community of which they are a part.
