Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education including sex and relationships curriculum- statement of intent
At The Grove School PSHE is at the centre of all we do for this is what helps children understand their human world around them and find what their contribution to others and the wider community and society in general looks like.
It is also how they begin to understand themselves and how they can live happy and fulfilling lives.
By the time children leave The Grove School at 11 years old they will:
have developed the initial skills and understanding of how to have positive relationships and manage more difficult ones, including managing their own behaviours and emotional responses to others.
respect peoples differences and be able to demonstrate tolerance towards others.
have developed the age appropriate skills to become independent and responsible members of the community, including showing they can behave well in a variety of circumstances.
have developed an early sense of self and self-belief which will help to determine their self-confidence, self-esteem and a growth mindset as they grow older.
have a strong understanding of how to live a healthy lifestyle and take care of their own mental health.
have an awareness of their own safety and how to make informed choices to keep themselves safe.
have the age appropriate skills of how to carry out balanced research in order to make informed choices with regards to personal and social issues which might affect their beliefs, opinions and actions.
understand as a child what it means to be British, or living in Britain and have some basic knowledge how British law and society function.
be aware of how to keep themselves safe online and the potential risks of using the internet and social media in todays society.
understand how money works within our society and gain some economic awareness.
We aim that PSHE is a personalised approach to learning and that some children benefit from additional pastoral care which helps to build these skills for life. All children will be taught how to develop these skills for life and will be supported through their learning process.Personal, social, health and economic education (or PSHE for short) covers a lot of subject matter that we feel strongly about sharing with children to help them to grow up wise and wonderful in the world today.
