Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) underpins our learning at Kingsclere CE Primary School as we strive to acquire and develop the knowledge, understanding and skills which will enable us to be confident, successful and responsible members of society both now and in the future. Our PSHE curriculum continues to develop and strengthen the Christian ethos of the school and aims to promote our school values of love, honesty, trust and integrity, our learning values and golden rules.
At Kingsclere, our PSHE is taught as a discrete subject across all year groups and plays a vital role in promoting children's spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. The curriculum is formed from different sources, these predominantly being the guidance and resources from Hampshire's PDL programme, the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning Programme (SEAL) and the initiative from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (Rights, respect and responsibility-RRR). In addition to this, the whole school curriculum is enriched by addressing topic related PSHE issues which arise through the children's half termly projects.
Although PSHE is taught as a discrete subject, we are fully aware of the need to develop and embed this subject into the life of the school. Whole school assemblies are used to promote high profile events and themes such as anti-bullying, e-safety, road safety and the development of our school Christian and leaning values. Regular circle time is used as a mechanism for discussion to address many issues but especially those of a sensitive nature. Outside speakers make a valuable contribution by bringing a wide range of expertise and life experiences to the PSHE curriculum especially in our assemblies, projects and performances.
The issues of smoking, drugs, alcohol and sex and relationships education are taught within our PSHE and science curriculum.
Internet safety is taught as part of the PSHE and Computing curriculum.
