Our PSHE scheme of work provides an effective curriculum for good mental health and well-being. Children are enabled to develop the vocabulary and confidence needed to clearly articulate their thoughts and feelings in a climate of openness, trust and respect, and know when and how they can seek the support of others. They will apply their understanding of society to their everyday interactions, from their classroom to the wider community of which they are a part. The two yearly cycle of PSHE topics, support our school culture in which we prioritise physical and mental health and well-being. Children are provided with skills to comprehend and evaluate their own well-being needs as well as contributing positively to the well-being of their peers. By building confidence and self-esteem, our PSHE curriculum can have a positive impact on a child’s academic progress. It can also raise achievement and aspirations amongst children from disadvantaged or vulnerable groups by empowering them with skills to overcome barriers they may face.
