We teach P.S.H.E. though a dedicated scheme of work. We have used what the ©PSHE Association 2013 have identified as the core areas, covering key concepts and skills that underpin PSHE Education to help us to support pupils’ spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development and prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life including ‘Modern Britain’, which will help pupils ‘develop and demonstrate skills and attitudes that will allow them to participate fully in and contribute positively to life in modern Britain.
Pupils are taught through three underlying core themes, within which there is a be broad overlap and flexibility:-
1. Health and Wellbeing
3. Living in the Wider World
As well as these discrete PSHE lessons, pupils are encouraged to explore and develop their knowledge and skills linked to specific issues in class, school or in the local / national/ international news, when opportunities arise.
Every Year our Y6 pupils complete a 10 week D.A.R.E. programme with their class teacher and Officer Tristram. D.A.R.E. = Drug Abuse Resistance Education
Not that different
Our pupils have enjoyed welcoming Reesha into school for the last 2 years. Reesha is the Chair of Governors to a local Rushcliffe school and visits other schools to run workshops and assemblies to develop disability awareness. The children were keen to ask Reesha questions and listen to her talk about her disability and that really she's Not that different! They loved investigating her specially adapted car! Thank you Reesha and we hope to see you back at Orston Primary again soon.
