PSHCE and P4C
We believe that PSCHE and RSE are vital to helping our pupils achieve their potential. We recognise that our children have faced different challenges over recent years and will provide support for children to manage and communicate their feelings, problem solve and develop their social skills. We also complete a variety of activities that demonstrate to children their rights and responsibilities within the school and in different communities. We teach this through a curriculum that repeats topics each year, which explores issues and ideas that are relevant to our pupils in a sensitive and age appropriate way. We promote independent problem solving so that children can address friendship issues. The zones of regulation enable children to speak openly about how they are feeling and which zone they are in at that moment in time.
Our PSCHE and RSE curriculum also allows pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of healthy attitudes and lifestyles (including but not limited to: drugs and alcohol, diet and exercise, sex and relationships). Our aim is for our pupils to have respect for others and themselves. PSHCE has dedicated time within our timetable but is weaved into all lessons to build positive attitudes to learning.
