Personal, Social, Health, Economic & Relationships Education

Stoke Prior First School Curriculum Offer for PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education)

At Stoke Prior First School our PSHE curriculum is designed to help children know and develop the skills to be safe and stay healthy and be able to manage their academic and social lives in a positive way. Our curriculum supports pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and helps to foster their wellbeing and develop resilience and character which we know are fundamental to them being happy, successful, members of society. Central to this is pupils’ ability to believe that they can achieve goals, both academic and personal, to stick to tasks that will help them achieve those goals and to recover from knocks and challenging periods in their lives. Alongside understanding of self-respect and self-worth, we aim to develop personal attributes including kindness, integrity, generosity, honesty, trustworthiness and a sense of justice. We also aim to help our children to become equipped with the skills to maintain positive emotional and mental wellbeing, including how their friendships can support their mental wellbeing.

Using a cross curricular approach, our curriculum offers both explicit and implicit learning opportunities and experiences which reflect our pupils’ increasing independence and physical and social awareness as they move through the primary phase. It builds from the skills that they start to acquire during the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) to develop effective relationships, assume greater personal responsibility and manage personal safety, including online. Our curriculum helps pupils to cope with change, introduces them to a wider world and enables them to make an active contribution to their communities, taking into account the strengths and needs of our local area in Bromsgrove.

Our curriculum and school ethos promotes the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Forest School offers them the opportunity to develop many of these skills and social skills in a practical context outdoors and is an integral part of our PSHE offer.
