PSHE (PERSONAL, SOCIAL, HEALTH AND ECONOMIC EDUCATION) IS A NON-STATUTORY CURRICULUM SUBJECT THAT IS TAUGHT ACROSS THE SCHOOL.
There are no standardised frameworks or national programmes of study.
Children in the early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) follow the requirements within the EYFS curriculum.Years 1-6 use the PSHE Education, Citizenship and SEAL scheme of work. Petts Hill has adopted the new Ealing PSHE scheme of work. It is a planned, developmental programme of learning designed to help learners develop the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to make informed decisions and to manage their lives, now and in the future. By the time children leave in Year 6 we want all our pupils to have learnt the skills needed in order to become critical thinkers to be able help themselves in various social situations enabling them to become responsible members of society.
The scheme includes the overarching themes of health and wellbeing, living in the wider world and relationships where safeguarding, SMSC and British values are the golden threads throughout. The updated scheme of work includes many new topics including migration, charity, mental health and resilience, homelessness, drugs and alcohol education and relationships and sex education.
Throughout the scheme the following concepts are developed:
- Identity (personal qualities, attitudes, skills, attributes and achievements and what influences these)
- Risk (identification, assessment and how to manage risk rather than simply the avoidance of risk for self and others) and safety (including behaviour and strategies to employ in different settings)
- Diversity and equality (in all its forms)
- Rights (including the notion of universal human rights), responsibilities (including fairness and justice) and consent (in different contexts)
- Career (including enterprise, employability and economic understanding)
