Personal, Social and Health Education
We define PSHE as the aspects of our school's provision through which pupils acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to manage their lives, now and in the future as they become adults. PSHE develops the qualities and attributes that our pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. It is for this reason that Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education has its own distinct curriculum as well as underpinning everything that we do in school.
Our provision has two distinct forms:
PSHE as a curriculum subject within the classroom:
We use the Jigsaw programme to teach PSHE which integrates emotional literacy, social skills, spiritual and moral development into a teaching scheme from Years 1 to 6.
Each academic year, pupils look at 6 common themes:
- Being me in my world
- Celebrating difference
- Dreams and goals
- Healthy me
- Changing Me
We are a Kidsafe registered school and all pupils partake in workshops during the school year.
PSHE that permeates all aspects of life in school:
Many aspects of the life and ethos in Moor Row Primary School strengthen and enhance PSHE provision.
Our 'Three Rights' system for promoting positive behaviour teaches pupils that they are responsible for their own actions and that their behaviour impacts upon the lives of others.
Our four point system for positive attitudes to learning ensures that pupils understand what is expected of them in the classroom and how they can maximise their learning potential.
Values education is an important part of our curriculum. Our core values are:
- Hope and Aspiration
These values underpin our policies, procedures and teaching in school. Each half term we concentrate on a particular value and our Monday morning assemblies focus upon this with staff exploring pupils' understanding and challenging their thinking.
Respect: Respect is one of our core values and one of our key rights and responsibilities. We talk a lot about respect for ourselves, respect for others and respect for the community and environment around us. By teaching our pupils about respect, we are encouraging them to value differences, be tolerant of each other and work collaboratively.
