PSHCE- Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education
PSHCE- Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Economic Education at Sir John Heron
“Together We Learn. Together We Achieve” is embedded into all elements of school life and learning at Sir John Heron Primary School including in the PSHCE curriculum and lessons. PSHCE is an important part of the school’s broad and balanced curriculum. We believe it is important that all children have access to a coherently sequenced PSHCE curriculum which is relevant to their needs and interests and equips them with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to succeed in their next stage of education whilst preparing them for life in modern 21st century Britain. We aim to provide a curriculum which revisits key themes at different developmental stages throughout the school and aims to meet children’s needs as they change and develop.
At Sir John Heron our PSHCE and Health and Relationships Education reflects our school ethos of celebration and respect for individuals, communities and diverse life experiences; the programme content and delivery will encourage individual:
- Respect for self
- Respect for others
- Responsibility for actions and communication
The Sir John Heron PSHCE and Health and Relationship Education curriculum is delivered in discrete, weekly lessons of 45 minutes by class teachers and includes opportunities for meditation and oracy. Additional sessions may also be delivered by external agencies such as the NSPCC, TFL, Gangsline, and the Fire Brigade..
Links to support your child at home:
Often a good way to talk with children about tricky subjects is through using stories. We have attached below some documents that suggest good books to use with children in challenging times.
Here are also sources of information and support that you might find of use to use at home with your child.
For EYFS and KS1 the NSPCC website has a good resource. Talk PANTS helps children understand that their body belongs to them, and they should tell someone they trust if anything makes them feel upset or worried.
If you have any questions or concerns about the social and emotional wellbeing of your child, please do not hesitate to talk to a member of the school staff.
