Intent

 

At Village Infants we aim to deliver a PSHE curriculum which is accessible to all and ensures that each of our pupils will know more, remember more and understand more about how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as children and as an adults in the future.

 

We deliver a curriculum that encourages our children to be healthy, independent and responsible members of a society, who understand how they are developing personally and socially, and we aim to give them the confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We also provide our children with opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Moreover our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. We challenge all of our pupils to look for opportunities to demonstrate the school values of perseverance, resilience kindness and curiosity and actively seek leadership opportunities within our school and within their local community.

 

Implementation

 

Reception and KS1 to have weekly PSHE lessons (based on SEAL/Growth mindset lessons)

 

Teachers use a range of teaching and learning styles, including activities such as discussion, role-play, games, assemblies, investigations, circle-time, problem-solving activities and outdoor learning and drama sessions. Children are provided with frequent opportunities to have their voice heard and because of this; they play an active part in school life. Children are able to express their opinions and views through questionnaires, school council discussions, various elections and comments on various correspondence throughout the year e.g. reports, annual questionnaires, work and homework. Children have the opportunities to meet and work with members of the community, such as health workers, firefighters, police, and representatives from the local church and community
