INTENT – The PSHCE Curriculum
We recognise and value the importance of PSHCE and SRE in helping our children become the best versions of themselves – preparing them as citizens of the future, equipped to deal with the ever-changing wider world whilst maintaining positive emotional health. As part of their Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship studies our pupils are prepared for the next stage in their journey and for adult life. Through our whole school approach to PSHCE we ensure that the subject is given the importance it deserves and that it is valued by all pupils and staff.
Through PSHCE, but not exclusively, we consider our pupil’s cultural capital needs and explore and exploit these where appropriate. There is a high importance placed on mental wellbeing and emotional health and this underpins all of the work we do at Hunton & Arrathorne School.
PSCHE lessons are taught under the following headings:
* Health and wellbeing
* Living in the wider world
We currently deliver PSHCE sessions using resources outlined by the PSHCE Association.
We ensure the children:
Children will achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life;
-Children will grow in their self-knowledge, self-esteem and self-confidence
-Our children will to distinguish right from wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England.
-Children will take responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative, and to understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality of the school and to society more widely.
Our PSHCE work is celebrated not just in lessons, but in wider school life. Through weekly ‘News Assembly’ pupils learn about current issues; pupil leadership is given a high priority with leadership groups running including ‘Sports Leaders’ and the ‘Pupil Leadership Team’ who work on improving whole school issues.
Each pupil receives a ‘PSHCE Passport’ which they begin in Year 1 and take through school with them. This is a record of key PSHCE work and serves to support them in their development throughout Hunton & Arrathorne School.
