Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education
Personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) including RSE at St. Paul's
In EYFS, KS1 and KS2 children use floor books to record their learning in PSHE sessions. As a school, we follow SEALS as a scheme of work. This scheme has been edited to suit the needs of our school and it is updated regularly to ensure the scheme reflects current issues and topics. Class teachers are also able to edit this scheme to suit the needs of the cohort. All year groups study the same theme each half term and each theme is differentiated to suit the year group.
- Autumn 1- New Beginnings
- Autumn 2- Getting on and Falling out
- Spring 1- Going for Goals!
- Spring 2- Good to be Me
- Summer - A Journey in Love
This curriculum resource aims to develop the underpinning qualities and skills that help to promote positive behaviour and effective learning. It focuses on four social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy and social skills.
British Values are strongly embedded in our curriculum. During Autumn one, the children are exposed to democracy and voting for various class representatives. Children in UKS2 develop a deeper understanding for democracy and begin to understand the systems in place in Britain. Individual liberty is also explored as part of this learning in UKS2. Children also learn about the rule of law. During Spring two, tolerance of different cultures and religions is intertwined with our Good to be Me theme. Children learn about differences between themselves and others. The children develop an understanding of mutual respect.
As a school, we follow the RSE scheme A Journey in Love. It has been written as a progressive scheme of work that supports the Religious Education, PSHE and Science curriculum taught within the school. It focuses on friendship, family, community, relationships and spirituality. The content is age appropriate and is taught with sensitivity, taking into account the children’s level of maturity in regard to the delivery of lessons.
