PSHE Statement

LUM HEAD PRIMARY SCHOOL

STATEMENT OF PSHE

 

Lum Head Primary School is a nurturing learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop their full potential and where their achievements and successes are celebrated and rewarded.

 

As a school, we believe that children are all individuals and therefore, we aim to encourage mutual respect, responsibility and foster self-esteem in a happy and caring atmosphere. The teaching and learning of PSHE supports and upholds this vision.

 

The PSHE programme is reviewed and evaluated regularly to ensure provision is relevant, up-to-date and of the highest quality. Our curriculum is split into 3 core themes:

  • Health and wellbeing
  • Relationships
  • Living in the wider world

 

The aims of PSHE education within Lum Head Primary School are to provide children with:

  • accurate and relevant knowledge
  • opportunities to create personal understanding
  • opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities
  • a range of skills and strategies to live a healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced life.

 

PSHE deals with the diverse beliefs, values and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. They help pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, and their ability to communicate their feelings. PSHE helps children to acquire British values and attitudes which are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences within school and life itself, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.

 

PSHE education cannot exist in isolation. At Lum Head Primary School it is part of a whole school approach and our curriculum provides a range of opportunities for children to make links to other areas of learning and explore a wide range of social, moral, cultural and behavioural issues.

 

As a school, we aim to enrich the lives of our children by providing them with the skills and opportunities to apply their learning within and beyond the curriculum. PSHE underpins our school ethos and is delivered as a rolling programme from Reception to Year 6. It also includes a multi-agency approach.

 

Through PSHE, we believe we can enhance children’s education and help them become caring, respectful and confident individuals.
