PSHE Curriculum 2019-2020
To nurture pupils as individuals to become compassionate, healthy, well-balanced adults who thrive in our diverse society
At Mesty Croft Academy we believe that PSHE has a significant and valuable role to play in the ethos of the school and wellbeing of the children. The aim of our PSHE curriculum is to prepare children for the opportunities, experiences and responsibilities of life in our ever-changing society. We aim to give the children the knowledge and tools to grow and flourish into successful and healthy individuals. Our children deserve the opportunities to achieve their best and supporting their emotional and mental health plays a significant part in all aspects of their life, including achieving their academic potential.
Children have a right to access the vital lessons that will help guide them through their life and we have the responsibility to ensure that we are giving our children the experiences that they will need to prepare them for their journey.
Curriculum Organisation and Delivery
PSHE has a protected 1 hour slot each Monday to ensure that children are given adequate time to learn and discuss a wide range of topics within PSHE. All children are given the opportunities to discuss their thoughts with teachers and share their ideas with peers. Our PSHE education is also taught through the use of assemblies, visitors, charity events and access to Place 2 Be.
The PSHE scheme lays out 5 specific strands which are built upon year by year to ensure full, in-depth coverage of pertinent knowledge. These are as follows:
- Celebrating differences.
- Dreams and goals.
- Healthy me.
- Changing me.
Relationships and Sex Education (RSE), Drugs Education and Health Education are all covered as part of the scheme of work.
