PSCHE – Personal, Social, Citizenship, Health and Education.
PSCHE plays an important part in the curriculum. It contributes to the health and achievement of children. It deals with real life social and economic issues affecting children and young people, their families and communities.
PSCHE is taught from Nursery up to Year 6. In the Foundation Stage, children learn through stories and circle time, where they get an opportunity to talk and discuss issues that are important to them. From Year 1 to Year 6 children will follow half termly topics. These are as follows:
|Autumn Term 1||New Beginnings|
|Autumn Term 2||Getting on and Falling Out|
|Spring Term 1||Good to be me|
|Spring Term 2||Going for Goals|
|Summer Term 1||Relationships|
|Summer Term 2||
Children will develop their understanding of belonging, self-awareness, understanding feelings of themselves and others. They will learn how to manage their feelings and develop social skills as well as understanding that there are more ways to solve problems and use this knowledge when making choices.
