PSHE is a National Curriculum subject which contains several specialist areas. The main areas are:
- Emotional Health & Wellbeing
- Healthy Lifestyles
- Relationships and Sex Education
- Drug Education
- Staying Safe (including e-safety)
- Financial capability
Lessons and questions addresses to children will be appropriate to their age, maturity understanding and need. Correct vocabulary for terms will generally be used during PSHE lessons in line with all other curriculum subjects. Often questions will be addressed to the whole class but should a need arise questions may be answered on an individual or small group basis. Professional judgement will be applied and in support of the schools safeguarding policy.
At Meadowcroft PSHE lessons happen on a weekly basis and more if there is a need. PSHE is taught by the class teachers who are trained and confident in the delivery of PSHE.
In addition to the taught PSHE curriculum we provide a number of enrichment activities:
- Achievement Assembly
- Election of School Council
- Values Assembly
Within Early Years PSHE is seen through the PSED area of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development).
Children in Early Years are within an enriched environment where PSED learning takes place on a daily basis. Children within Early Years are assessed on 3 areas:
- Self Confidence and Self Awareness
- Managing Feelings and Behaviour
- Making Relationships
Children are also taught about sfety including e-safety and hygiene.
