PSHE & RHE
Intent: Our vision for PSHE
At St Teresa’s our vision is “to shape our children to become the leaders of tomorrow”. Our intention is that when children leave St Teresa’s, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society.
Implementation: How We teach PSHE
The PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Economic) curriculum is planned alongside the RSHE (Relationships, Sex and Health Education) curriculum. We use Ten:Ten resources (recommended by the Dioceses) and PSHE Association to support our curriculum coverage. In the Foundation Stage, PSHE is embedded throughout the curriculum, and supports children in working towards the Early Learning Goals. At Key Stage 1 and 2, PSHE is taught through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. Pupils use their “We belong” books to record any written or creative work. We use skills progression maps to track skill development across the school.
The impact of our PSHE curriculum is that children at St. Teresa’s enjoy PSHE lessons and are prepared for a successful adult life. Children will leave our school on their way to becoming healthy, open minded, respectful, socially and morally responsible, active members of society.
Our PSHE curriculum introduces our pupils to a wider world and enables them to make active contributions to their communities. Our PSHE curriculum prepares pupils to be able to approach a range of real life situations. Children benefit from class based learning and the opportunity to learn within our local community.
Our community & families:
Our PSHE curriculum introduces the children at our school to the wider world. Children benefit from road safety walks in the local area and trips to the local shops and bank.
Our PSHE curriculum ensures children will appreciate difference and diversity. Children learn to appreciate what makes them special, and to respect each other’s differences.
