We believe that through PSHE, pupils should develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. The skills they learn in PSHE will give them the tools they need to help them stay safe and healthy. Understanding the importance of positive relationships is a key aspect of PSHE learning. They will be taught the need for equality and tolerance. They will be encouraged to consider the perspective of others, as well as appropriate ways to deal with conflict and disagreements. The attributes and attitudes they develop through PSHE will give pupils the opportunity to achieve their academic potential, and leave Chilton Primary equipped with skills they will need to navigate school and lifelong learning.
At Chilton Primary, PSHE is taught in a safe and supportive environment. We follow the Islington scheme You, Me, PHSE because it fully meets the RSE guidance and is also supported by the PSHE association.
You, Me, PHSE provides a clear and progressive structure, with planned age appropriate lessons across 7 strands:
- Sex and relationship education;
- Drug, alcohol and tobacco education;
- Keeping safe and managing risk;
- Mental health and emotional wellbeing;
- Physical health and wellbeing;
- Careers, financial capability & economic wellbeing;
- Identity, society and equality.
Individual units are spread across a half term, rather than blocked into a single week.
In addition to the Islington scheme, specific input may be given to year groups or individuals in order to support them with issues relevant to their immediate circumstances, or current events in the wider world. Assemblies are also planned to support RSE.
- At Chilton, pupil voice shows that pupils are confident and able to talk about what they have learnt in PSHE using subject specific vocabulary.
- Pupils enjoy PSHE and are able to recall their learning over time.
- Pupil’s work demonstrates that PSHE is taught at an age appropriate standard across each year group.
- Evidence of work is of a good standard and demonstrates pupils are acquiring knowledge, skills and vocabulary in an appropriate sequence.
