PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes pupils need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. (PSHE association)
At Whyteleafe, as part of the broad and balanced curriculum we "promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, wevprepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life" while having a duty to keep pupils safe.
At Whyteleafe we ensure:
- A well-delivered PSHE programme has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes (particularly for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged)
- Programme of Study for PSHE education (key stages 1 and 2) aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamwork and critical thinking in the context of learning (this links well with our Whyteleafe wheel of learning and Whyteleafe behaviour sapphires)
PSHE planning at Whyteleafe is grouped into three core themes for each year group:
- Health and wellbeing
- Living in the wider world
