PSHE

WELCOME  TO  ALL SAINTS  PSHE

School PSHE manager - Mrs T Jhass

 

Personal, Social, Health Education and Citizenship are the core skills that we aim to develop within our school. They are interwoven into everyday life here at All Saints.

 

 

An overview of how PSHE is taught within the school:

In our school PSHE is taught through our cross curricular approach to learning each term. We use a range of teaching and learning styles. We place an emphasis on active learning by including the children in discussions, investigations and problem-solving activities. We encourage children to take part in practical activities  that promote active citizenship, e.g. charity fundraising, leading school assemblies, running the school tuck shop and involvement in initiatives designed to help others less fortunate than ourselves eg – Helping the Homeless partnership work with Caring Hands.

 

PSHE lessons do not appear on weekly class timetables because they are embedded into everyday learning experiences that the children participate in regularly. Circle time sessions do take place and appear on cross curricular plans for each class every term.

 

Development plans for PSHE

The development of PSHE is of importance on the school improvement plan. Some of the new initiatives taking place this year include:

  • The election of a New School Council .
  • Organising an NSPCC assembly on Safeguarding and Anti Bullying.
  • Installment of a Friendship Stop in the playground.
  • The purchase of new PSHE resources for all phases
  • The allocation of small jobs around school, to school councillors e.g. delivering Xmas cards and Teacher’s post.
  • Building a Keep Clean Team
  • Launching a Red Nose Day charity event.
  • Purchasing and maintaining plants to improve the school environment
  • Conducting a survey on pupil healthy eating.
  • Improving behaviour at playtimes for all pupils

 

Safe,Friendly and Happy Playtimes.

The School Council have come up with some ideas for supporting friendly playtimes, they include:

  1. Devising a friendship charter and getting all children to sign it.
  2. Installing a friendship stop on the playground.
  3. Organising Friendship Posters and displaying them around the playground
  4. Leading school assemblies on how to have happier playtimes at school.

 

How Challenge is provided within PSHE learning

Some individual pupils are identified by teachers as needing personal, social, health or emotional support because they have specific needs that act as barriers to their learning. These pupils are then targeted to take part in personal challenge tasks/clubs that encourage pupils to face up to their challenges, say ‘Bring it on !’ and overcome them . So far the school have run challenge clubs that include: circle of friends, social skills, play therapy, art therapy, healthy eating, weight management, social stories and anger issues.

 

How parents can help with their child’s PSHE learning at home

 

  • Make children aware of current social issues within the local community and further afield
  • Teach children how to be tolerant of other religions, faiths, views and opinions
  • Encourage children to talk about their problems/ challenges and encourage them to find ways of overcoming them
  • Teach children that individuals can disagree but disagreement needs to be done with respect
  • Teach children how to show good manners and respect for others in their everyday lives
  • Encourage children to abide by the law of the land and the rules/ laws of the local community home and school
  • Teach children how to live a healthy lifestyle
  • Teach children how to respect themselves
