PSHE Implementation

We have created a scheme of work which is not only in line with the National Curriculum but meets the specific needs of our pupils. Our comprehensive PSHE progression map shows the ongoing learning journey from Reception to Year 6. Both have been devised primarily through the use of the ‘Life to the Full’ published scheme of work and Coram Life Education & SCARF. Our curriculum covers Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. The children will meet these themes throughout the course of each year and the themes are built upon as the children move through school.

The key areas of learning we aim to cover include:

  • Families and friendships
  • Safe relationships
  • Respecting ourselves and others
  • Belonging to a community
  • Media literacy and digital resilience
  • Money and work
  • Physical health and mental wellbeing
  • Growing and changing
  • Keeping safe

At St Vincent’s we believe that PSHE plays a vital part of primary education and needs to be taught weekly although there will also be opportunities to make cross curricular links and these opportunities should not be missed: this enables staff to ensure full coverage of the PSHE scheme of work. Occasions may arise when staff feel it necessary to teach PSHE as a result of an issue which has arisen in their own class.

PSHE is an important part of school assemblies and collective worship where children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural curiosity is stimulated, challenged and nurtured.
