PSHE at CBINS
Intent - Our PSHE curriculum is designed to enable all children to be independent, to value and respect themselves and others, to build healthy relationships, and prepare them for life. We encourage our children to think for themselves and ask questions in order to grow their confidence and allow them to apply their learning to everyday life situations. We feel it is crucial for children to be independent, empathetic and be able to work as part of a team in order to contribute to society and use their knowledge and skills to make safe and informed decisions. Central to this is being able to keep themselves safe and healthy.
Implementation – We implement this by following the JIGSAW scheme of work that builds upon prior learning while revisiting skills and meeting the needs of the children in our school. Children learn to become independent, respectful, safe and healthy through: play and exploration; discussion and talk with peers and knowledgeable adults; studying real life situations and examples; quality first teaching; relevant stories and scenarios and time to be mindful. Crucial to this is a rich learning environment that encourages children to use and apply their skills in everyday situations.
Support and challenge
Impact – Our PSHE curriculum leads to good progress across the school. At the end of EYFS children are more confident in expressing themselves and can articulate how they feel and demonstrate healthy choices. At the end of KS1, children build on the skills and knowledge acquired in EYFS and show understanding towards others, use the correct vocabulary when discussing their health and well-being and can independently make behaviour choices.
