PSHE is taught as a spiralling curriculum across the school under the advice of the PSHE Association. It makes a significant contribution to the development of a wide range of essential interpersonal, intrapersonal and enquiry skills.
The three main areas of learning
- Health and wellbeing
- Living in the wider world – Economic wellbeing and being a responsible citizen
The overarching concepts within PSHE
- Identity (their personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these)
- Relationships (including different types and in different settings)
- A healthy (including physically, emotionally and socially) balanced lifestyle (including within relationships, work-life, exercise and rest, spending and saving and diet)
- Risk (to be managed rather than simply avoided) and safety (including behaviour and strategies in different settings)
- Diversity and equality (in all its forms)
- Rights, responsibilities (including fairness and justice) and consent (in different contexts)
- Change (as something to be managed) and resilience (the skills, strategies and ‘inner resources’ we can draw on when faced with challenging change or circumstance)
- Power (how it is used and encountered in a variety of contexts including persuasion, bullying, negotiation and ‘win-win’ outcomes)
- Career (including enterprise and economic understanding)
At Cherry Orchard, we follow the Jigsaw PSHE schemes. These fall under 6 topic titles which Years 1 - 6 follow. The skills taught are progressive.
