PSHE

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’

Nelson Mandela

Intent

We believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and as well as discrete focused lessons, it is also embedded throughout the curriculum. PSHE is integral to the development of children’s values in order for them to become a positive citizen in a forever changing community. PSHE is an important part of school assemblies were children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.

Implementation

At Knuton, St Mary’s, we follow a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. Knutton also have an embedded Primary PSHE scheme of work called My Happy Mind. The scheme of work includes opportunities to link British Values, SMSC and school’s Key skills into the curriculum.

The spiral curriculum starts in reception and follows the children through to Year 6. The distribution of the lessons complements key campaigns throughout the year such as Anti-bullying Week. 

Alongside this, all subjects in our wider curriculum make links to PSHE, BV, SMSC and the language is used consistently by all staff.
