Personal Social Health and Economic Education (P.S.H.E.)
“Personal, Social , Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future."
These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe, and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to achieve their academic potential, and leave school equipped with skills they will need throughout later life.
At Lindens Primary School we have tailored PSHE to suit our pupils, school and community; giving careful consideration to our school ethos and aims and our pupils’ needs.
Where possible we make cross-curricula links between PSHE and other subjects.
PSHE learning comes in many different forms: through whole-class teaching, group activities, individual tasks, assemblies, outside speakers, cross-curricula lessons and discrete lessons.
During PSHE sessions children are encouraged to both ask and answer questions, to deepen their knowledge and understanding. A great deal of time is spent considering scenarios and possible responses to them.
Our inclusive curriculum supports the objectives set out by the PSHE Association which meet the statutory requirements for Key Stage 1 and 2. It forms a core part of our comprehensive personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education curriculum. The scheme we follow at Lindens is SCARF. Learning in Relationships Education lessons will also link to learning in Science.
Our lessons will be differentiated where appropriate, ensuring all children are able to participate fully. Children will be given the opportunity throughout the units of work to reflect on and evaluate their learning - assessment opportunities are built in to every lesson.
