PSHE Curriculum Statement
At Harefield Primary School, we deliver the statutory Relationships and Health Education (RHE) and British Values, through our PSHE curriculum, supported by an inclusive PSHE scheme called SCARF (Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship).
Our PSHE curriculum’s intention is to support our pupils to develop and mature into healthy (physically and mentally), risk aware, sociable young people who can navigate the complexities of the modern world successfully and maintain positive healthy relationships.
We tailor and put greater emphasis on particular themes, in response to current and relevant issues/ risks that are specific to our pupils and the local community/ area.
- Peer influence – in response to the changes to KCSIE 2021 on peer on peer abuse and our pupils needs.
- Media influence – in response to an increase in younger pupils accessing social media platforms that are not age appropriate.
Our whole curriculum is comprehensibly planned and clearly sequenced and PSHE follows this consistent design, effectively adapting and developing to meet the needs of ALL pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs and/ or Disabilities and those that are disadvantaged.
Our PSHE curriculum is taught by the class teacher, who will first revisit prior learning. We return to previous learning, in order for pupils to retrieve knowledge from their long-term memory and build on this, with the introduction of new knowledge. This is through an “I do, You do” approach of clear modelling and scaffolding of new concepts. The pupils will then practise applying this knowledge in a group or individual task.
We use key CONCEPTS that are thread through our PSHE curriculum, from Yr R to Yr 6, in order to build on prior learning and support pupils making strong links in their knowledge, from previous learning.
