What does PSHE look like at Chilvers Coton?
Our PSHE curriculum is designed around three core themes, taken from the PSHE association Programme of Study which we use to underpin our planning. These three core themes are; health and well being, relationships and living in the wider world. Through these themes, children learn and explore what it means to be a good citizen and how they can have a positive impact on themselves, those in our school community and beyond.
Our school values drive our curriculum and learning and are focused on in assemblies, PSHE sessions and on displays in the learning environment. Every week we have a 'tweak of the week' to focus on a behaviour we would like the children to understand and show such as using our manners or playing with someone new.
In classes, children are taught PSHE in whole class and smaller group situations where appropriate. PSHE sessions are always led by the class teacher and issues/themes are explored through stories, discussion, circle times and through resources such as puppets, pictures, video clips etc. Children have the opportunity to ask questions and rules are reinforced at the start of each session so that children interact with each other respectfully and also recognise that people have different points of view.
