At Beeches Infant School we believe that a strong PSHE education is important to help our pupils develop into well-rounded members of society, who can make a positive contribution to their community. Our PSHE curriculum is strongly tied to our RHE, relationships, health education and pastoral care programme. As a Rights Respecting school our pupils learn about their rights and the role of the duty bearers (adults in school) in supporting their access to the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child.
‘We will provide a broad and balanced curriculum and support every child to be the best they can be.’ Article 29 (Goals of Education)
PSHE is taught in discrete curriculum time, it is taught through a spiral curriculum approach addressing pupils current experiences alongside preparation for their future. We follow the PSHE Association ‘Questions based model’ in KS1 and in EYFS Topic based PSED planning. Rights Education is supported through our ‘First steps to Rights’ programme.
Opportunities for cross-curricular learning are considered by subject facilitators and links made as appropriate. Regular circle time opportunities are used to explore and support our emotional literacy programme (PATHs).
Our little voices boxes contribute to these.
