PSHE

Our Vision for PSHE:

At Chorlton C of E Primary School we put the personal development of our pupils at the forefront of everything that we do.

Through our PSHE curriculum we aim to:

  • Provide engaging and enjoyable learning experiences which are meaningful and appropriate for the children in our school.
  • Develop the knowledge and skills pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and to feel confident and prepared for living a fulfilling life. 
  • Develop personal skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, teamworking, risk-management and critical thinking.
  • Encourage our children to become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.

 

Shaping Our PSHE Curriculum: 

We believe that our PSHE curriculum needs to reflect the needs of our pupils and the community within which they live. As a staff team we have combined the statutory requirements and guidance of the national curriculum, with recommendations from the PSHE Association and Manchester Healthy Schools to create our own programmes of study. Where appropriate links have been made to support our Rights Respecting School ethos.

Our PSHE curriculum comprises of 3 Core Themes of learning. These are followed across all year groups and are adapted accordingly in order to secure clear progression of knowledge, skills and understanding:

The subject of PSHE deals with real life issues which affect children and young people, their families and their communities, and engages with the social and economic realities of their lives, experiences and attitudes.

 

At Chorlton C of E, PSHE is taught through planned discrete lessons together with other sessions, for example circle times, during which classteachers discuss topics which they deem to be pertinent to the needs of the class at that time.

 

Our PSHE curriculum is also drawn from: 

 

  • The Anti-Bullying Alliance
  • UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools
  • Eco Schools
