Personal, Social and Health Education
PSHE education at Kippax Greenfield Primary School is part of a whole school approach, centred on the UNICEF Convention on the Rights of the Child, which prepares our children with the skills they need to lead happy, healthy lives in an exciting, innovative and fast-paced world. We recognise the issues and challenges that our children may face during their lifetimes, particularly in relation to their mental health, relationships and safety, both online and offline. With this in mind, we provide a tailored, high quality PSHE curriculum which addresses our children’s personal development, mental health and safety, supporting our children to develop holistically and ultimately boosting their attainment and life chances. As a result our children become independent, responsible and well-rounded individuals.
The PSHE curriculum at Kippax Greenfield follows the You, Me and PSHE programme with the addition of Mind Mate units of work. Additional resources are used to support the teaching of Relationship and Sex Education.
PSHE is taught weekly throughout school and is supported by assemblies and workshops from external organisations such as the NSPCC and Road Safety Team. Circle time and class discussions are also used to build relationships and enable children to grow emotionally and socially.
Our Personal, Social and Health Education is a holistic programme covering;
• identity, society and equality
• relationships and management of feelings
• healthy eating and exercise
• drugs, alcohol and tobacco education
• mental health and emotional wellbeing
• keeping safe and managing risk including e-safety
• careers, financial capability and economic wellbeing
• growth, change and Sex and Relationship Education (SRE).
