Personal Social Health Education helps pupils to have happier, healthier, and safer lives, now and in the future.

 

PSHE  at Carlton Hill

Today’s children and young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives seamlessly on and offline. This presents many positive and exciting opportunities, but also challenges and risks. In this environment, children and young people need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.

( Secretary of State Foreword, Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education, statutory guidance, DfE, 2019)

This is why Relationships and Health Education has been made compulsory in all primary schools in England. In our school, this part of the curriculum will be delivered through Personal Social and Health education lessons.

At Carlton Hill, we believe that children need regular opportunities and a safe environment to learn about and to practise the skills needed for understanding themselves, their bodies and their emotions, their relationships with others and their connection to their school, local community and the wider world.

We want every pupil to leave Carlton Hill, with self-knowledge, and the ability to get on with others from a range of backgrounds and cultures. We hope they will have the confidence to be able to recognise and safely challenge prejudice or bullying behaviour when they see it.

PSHE can help pupils be ready for each stage of their lives and to grow the skills they need to navigate this complex 21st century world. 

How is our PSHE curriculum organised? 

The PSHE curriculum at Carlton Hill is a carefully planned, age appropriate, spiral curriculum, based on the Curriculum map and resources provided by B&H PSHE team .

PSHE is organised into three core themes;

  • Health &well-being
  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world

These core themes are explored through a range of short half termly topics, revisited within each key stage. Most PSHE topics including, Feeling Good Feeling Safe, Relationships, Keeping Healthy & Safe and Global Citizenship, will be in taught in every year group. As the pupils revisit these topics with a different focus each year, they are able to build on previous learning, develop their understanding and have further opportunities to practice key skills, for example on resolving arguments or asking for help, in a safe learning environment.

PSHE is taught weekly throughout the school year, and related whole school assemblies are planned to introduce and develop the learning in class.Each topic is carefully planned and delivered in 4-6 lessons over a half term. Key vocabulary is introduced and explored, and much of the learning is through discussion, whole class and group activities.

To see more detailed information about how the PSHE curriculum is organised, please see the PSHE Curriculum Map below..

What is the impact of our PSHE curriculum?

We assess the impact of our PSHE curriculum in four simple ways.

Observation in class and the wider school

Teacher observation of classroom relationships and behaviour,  as well as the monitoring of these in the wider school, provides a good picture of how successful this teaching and learning has been. We are a school that prides ourselves on the quality of our relationships, and this emphasis on the skills of relationships informs all we do. We hope to see the outcomes of this PSHE learning in the classrooms, corridors and the playground of our school.

End of Topic Assessment tasks

There are key assessment tasks planned into the sequences of learning for topics over the year. 

Pupil self-assessment

From Y1 upwards, pupils have a reflective Journal which is used to record their key learning in PSHE. This books move up the school with pupils who are able to reflect back and see their own development.

Pupil voice

All of our subject leaders are given time to listen to pupils from across the school and discuss their given subjects. Pupil feedback  is noted and feeds into planning for future years, as well as helping us to guage pupil progress.

What are the inspirations for our PSHE curriculum?

Our curriculum is informed by the DfE Statutory Guidance for Relationships & Health Education 2019, and the PSHE Association Programme of Study 2020. Brighton & Hove PSHE team provide high quality teaching resources which are used widely across the local authority schools. Our PSHE coordinator is a PSHE lead teacher, who is able to access the most recent national resources as well as working closely with all the PSHE coordinators in the city.

What do our pupils have to say about PSHE ?

“PSHE is a very important subject for your life”

“PSHE lessons help us to stay safe”

“It is important to learn about my  body and how it changes so I feel prepared for things.”

“Learning about friendships changing and ending helps me to know how to make new friends and deal with problems.”

“Drugs & Alcohol Education help us to stay safe- it we didn’t know about it , we might do the wrong thing.”

“It’s good to leant about mental health and wellbeing with your class because then if someone is struggling you would know how to help.”
