PSHE

Intent 

Pupils at Bader Primary School will be enriched with a PSHE curriculum and a vast range of experiences that, regardless of their background, will enable them to:

  • Have and sustain positive relationships, have friends and have learned to treat other people with fairness, compassion and respect;
  • Grow healthy and strong and understand how to look after their body and keep themselves safe;
  • Live in the wider world as respectful, well rounded individuals, understanding that the world is a wondrous place and be inspired to achieve our goals.

Key Focus

Sustain positive relationships

Children have and know how to sustain positive relationships.

Stay healthy and safe

Children grow healthy and strong and understand how to look after their body and keep themselves safe.

Achieve our goals

Live in the wider world as respectful, well rounded individuals, understanding that the world is a wondrous place and be inspired to achieve our goals.

Implementation

Our PSHE curriculum is built around the needs of children at Bader. We use 3D PSHE as a guide, and have adapted this to suit the needs of children at Bader. It is designed so that all children are taught the three strands of PSHE: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. It is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. Each year group follows an overview which ensures a progressive structure for each strand through each year group.

In PSHE lessons at Bader:

  • We begin by sharing the intent with the pupils; it is important that children know what they are working towards and the reason why we are learning our PSHE objectives.
  • We share the purpose of the lesson – Why are we learning this?
  • We review prior learning so that children know which knowledge they will need to apply to their new learning.
  • We teach children the new objectives that they will need to access the lesson.  These will link to one or more of the three strands: Relationships, Health and Well-being and Living in the Wider World.
  • We finish by discussing our newly learned knowledge.  It is important for children to recognise their ability to sustain positive relationships,  treat other people with fairness, compassion and respect, grow healthy and strong, keep themselves safe and to achieve our goals.

Rights Respecting Schools and Fundamental British Values are linked throughout the PSHE curriculum.

PSHE Impact

Our personalised PSHE curriculum has enabled children at Bader to have and sustain positive relationships, have friends and treat other people with fairness, compassion and respect.  They talk confidently about their knowledge of different aspects of relationships, and put this into practise through the relationships that they form and demonstrate with others.

Pupils at Bader know the importance of looking after their bodies through healthy eating and exercise, they can talk about hygiene including dental hygiene and they know how to keep themselves safe.  Children can recognise an unsafe situation, including online, and know how to deal with this and which adults they can trust. Children are equipped to leave Bader with a wealth of knowledge about living in the wider world; they know what it means to be a respectful, well rounded individual, understanding that the world is a wondrous place and are inspired to make a difference.  Children leave Bader with knowledge of the value of money and have been taught that they should always have high aspirations for themselves and their futures.
