PSHE

Intent

We are committed to supporting children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development in order to prepare them for challenges, opportunities and responsibilities that occur in years to come.  Creating well balanced, happy and caring children who know their own self-worth is the aim at Norwood Primary School and contributing to this is the teaching of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE). 

Implementation

PSHE education at Norwood Primary School permeates all aspects of school life, so children are immersed in a wealth of learning experiences to guide them in becoming outstanding and open-minded members of the community.  By addressing many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up, we prepare children for a successful life.

  • To develop self-confidence, self-esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues for every child.
  • To develop positive attitudes to health and encourage the development of healthy life choices.
  • To understand what makes for good relationships with others, develop good relationships and have respect for other members of the school and the wider community.
  • To learn to respect and understand common humanity, diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning.
  • To be an independent and responsible member of the school, local and global community.
  • To be aware of their own behaviour, individual’s safety and risk issues.
  • To develop financial capability skills for future economic well-being.
  • To promote pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Impact

By the end of a pupil’s time in Norwood, we want our children in PSHE to:

  • Recognise if family relationships are making them feel unhappy or unsafe, and they can seek help or advice from others if needed.
  • Manage conflict, including knowing when and how to seek help or advice from others, if needed.
  • Know it’s important to respect others, even when they are very different from themselves (e.g. physically, in character, personality or backgrounds), or when they make different choices or have different preferences or beliefs.
  • Know risks associated with people they have never met and how information and data is shared and used online.
  • Know that mental well-being is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health and that there is a normal range of emotions (e.g. happiness, sadness, anger, fear, surprise, nervousness) and scale of emotions that all humans experience in relation to different experiences and situations.
  • Know the importance of building regular exercise into daily and weekly routines and how to achieve this e.g. walking or cycling to school, a daily active mile, or other forms of regular, vigorous exercise.
  • Know what a poor diet looks like and some risks associated with unhealthy eating (e.g. obesity and tooth decay) and other behaviours (e.g. the impact of alcohol on diet or health).
  • Know about puberty and the changing adolescent body, including physical and emotional changes.
