The PSHE curriculum at The Whitchurch Church of England Federation will give the children the opportunity:
· To learn to keep themselves healthy and safe.
· To become critical thinkers and to build self- esteem, resilience, and empathy.
· To prepare them for life and work in modern Britain by raising aspirations.
The broad and balanced PSHE curriculum at Belgrave focuses on developing children’s knowledge and skills to enable them to understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle, understand how to develop and maintain positive relationships and to understand their rights and responsibilities living in the wider world.
These key areas are taught using the Jigsaw scheme which is broken down to six themes (Puzzles) and focuses and on personal, social, and emotional development of children (see Roadmap). All six units are taught from Years 1 to Year 6 building upon children’s prior knowledge within each theme year by year.
Through this scheme of work children will demonstrate and apply the British values of Democracy, Mutual Respect, Tolerance, Rule of Law and Liberty.
Our PSHE provision provides children with skills and valuable experiences to be independent and responsible members of a society. We aim to raise aspirations and tackle many of personal, moral, social, and cultural issues children may face in society.
