Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) Curriculum
At Greenmount Primary School we strive to provide a curriculum that is broadly balanced and meets the needs of all pupils. Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) equips children with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to develop as confident, healthy and independent individuals within the community. Our PSHE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We aim to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their full potential as individuals and within the community. Our planning for PSHE covers health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.
Opportunities to further children’s development in Personal, Social and Health Education are embedded throughout our curriculum including PE, Science, computing, English and RE.
A wealth of enrichment activities further support and complement our PSHE curriculum. These include residential trips, school visits, community events, sports, carnivals, dance and singing events. ELSA sessions support individuals and small groups who need additional support and family support is readily available from our approachable and skilled team.
Personal and Social skills are at the heart of our school values and are the focus of school assemblies and class behaviour reward systems. Children are actively involved in making decisions and discussing issues surrounding their health, friendships and wellbeing through the School Council and other pupil voice activities, including our weekly Big Think sessions; where children discuss questions within mixed age ranges.
We are constantly looking at ways in which to further develop opportunities to enhance children’s social and emotional wellbeing.
