HRSE/PSHEE Curriculum - The Big Picture

PSHEE Philosophy

PSHEE is taught in a sensitive and inclusive way respecting the backgrounds and beliefs of all in our school communities.

Central to our BEBCMAT primary philosophy for PSHEE (Personal, Social Health and Economic Education) is a focus on fostering mental wellbeing as well as teaching pupils to take care of themselves, seek support when needed and recover from the knocks and challenges they may experience in life.

The PSHEE curriculum at BEBCMAT will provide the age appropriate building blocks of healthy respectful relationships with a focus on family and friendship. Running alongside the development of this curriculum strand is the close links that forge between the RE, ICT/Computing and HRSE curriculums.

Within the classroom environment children will be taught how to manage their academic, personal and social lives now and in the future. It is critical to the effective development of the whole person that this does not stop at the end of the primary phase. A smooth transition into high school is key.

Critical also to the successful delivery of this curriculum subject is the preparation of our pupils for the complex world they live in. This includes managing the positive and exciting opportunities with the challenges and risks, with an awareness of the power of online platforms and social media.

We aim to develop resilience within our children, so that they become happy, successful and productive learners contributing to the lives of others.

Implementation

At Christ the King Catholic Academy we believe that our PSHEE curriculum should embrace all aspects of personal, social, health and economic education.
In order to deliver this curriculum effectively our school has chosen to use a combination of schemes of learning alongside a journey of extra curricular opportunities, known as Pastoral Peaks.

The first of our schemes is designed by the PSHE Association. It provides the basis for the majority of pupils’ social, health and economic education. For the human relationship and sex education elements we follow the Life to the Full programme as published by Ten:Ten Resources.

PSHE Association

The association supports teachers, subject leads and others working in and with schools to raise standards and has designed a scheme of learning that helps ensure every pupil enjoys quality PSHE education. It covers three themes over the course of each academic year. These are: Relationships, Living in the Wider World and Health and Wellbeing. Each of these individual topics are then broken down into age specific units of work that are built upon and broadened each year.

Ten:Ten - Life to the Full

This is an ambitious, evolving programme of work that offers relationship and sex education that truly enables children to ‘live life to the full’ (John 10:10). The programme adopts a spiral curriculum approach so that as a child goes through the programme year-after-year, the learning will develop and grow, with each stage building on the last.

Pastoral Peaks

Pupils have the opportunity to engage in a range of experiences based upon Headstart’s Resilience Framework with an aim to create moments our pupils will remember for a lifetime. Resilience building activities such as high-ropes courses, trampolining and caving are combined with outdoor walking experiences to offer pupils a chance to challenge themselves. Visits to Blackpool points of interest including The Tower and Sea-Life Centre help pupils to feel a sense of belonging. The National Trust’s list of “50 Things to do before you’re 11¾” encourages pupils to develop their own interests and work together with their peers.

Impact

Opportunities for children to learn, reflect and apply their skills are provided throughout the units of work in the PSHEE/HRSE curriculums. Regular whole class discussions and debates alongside pupil voice sessions allow teachers to identify children who need more guidance and support. Within Key Stage 1 and 2 teacher assessment is used to review children’s progress and to inform the priority of future learning. Our schemes are flexible in order to meet the strengths and weaknesses of individual classes. Pupils within Foundation Stage are assessed using the PSED Development Matters Guidance.

By the time pupils leave year 6 they will be able to:

  • Show respect for themselves and others.
  • Develop safe, healthy and positive relationships with their family and friends.
  • Understand how they grow and change as they get older.
  • Develop a physical and mentally healthy lifestyle.
  • Become a caring and productive member of the community.
