Welcome to our PSHCE curriculum
Within our school we aim to provide our students with opportunities to develop/ further develop a positive self-image, make choices/ decisions, keep themselves safe and develop their personal autonomy by successfully offering a well- balanced and effective curriculum that builds upon personal experiences and promotes safety and aspiration for all, that is apparent and successfully tracked from when pupils arrive in EYFS and leave at post 16 for further education or additional learning opportunities linked to their adult life choices.
PSHCE education should not necessarily be planned in isolation as it is most effective in a ‘health promoting school’ culture where links are made with other relevant subjects to ensure consistency and continuity for pupils. These include, but are not limited to, science, computing (on-line safety), physical education and design and technology. From September 2020 the new statutory guidance for Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education and Health Education makes this area of the curriculum for young people one of the most important areas of development. “Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.” (DfE Guidance 2020).
We welcome and take into account DfE guidance on Relationships Education and Sex and Relationships Education, preventing and tackling any bullying, radicalisation, promoting safeguarding education and equality and have interweaved these areas within our breadth of study.
In addition to this, our school adopts a Trauma Informed Schools (TIS) approach, where a more personalised approach to self-awareness and learning is linked to and developed for pupils within the school, encompassing aspects of PSHCE/ RSE and RE. It is recognised that some areas of the curriculum will be taught on a 1:1 basis or in smaller groups that are more appropriate for the subject content.
From there we offer the following:
The Trust schools acknowledge the core overarching themes identified by the PHSE Association; through the design of a cross curricula approach we aim to provide our learners with the opportunity to:
PSHCE at Nancealverne School is delivered through understanding the world in EYFS, delivered as a core subject from KS1 through to KS4 and as a core part of the Preparing for Adulthood Curriculum in Post 16. Long term planning is driven by the implementation and development of key skills within the area of PSHCE and is interweaved through all subjects linked to the National curriculum within a rolling programme, to ensure breadth, depth and balance, with the three core themes being; Term 1: relationships. Term 2: living in the wider world and Term 3: Health and wellbeing. Those core themes will also deliver understanding and development in Mental Health Awareness, first aid and self awareness as part of the long term planning and pupil development.
To prepare pupils for both their futures and their present day-to-day lives. Pupils have the opportunity to recognise and reflect on how the area of learning is relevant to them and can be applied in their own lives. To provide a context to progressively expand and enrich overarching concepts and transferable skills through pupils learning that they can utilise throughout their educational and adult lives.
Impact is measured through:
EHCP/ IEP provision and outcomes, learning walks, professional feedback from outside agencies, SPT and whole school moderation, subject monitoring and B Squared assessment processes including back track assessment.
