PSHE Curriculum Statement
At Brockmoor Primary School we ASPIRE to ensure PSHE is at the core of everything we do. By doing so it allows our children to blossom into confident, independent, reflective and responsible members of the ever changing society around them. We strive to ensure children are challenged intellectually, socially, spiritually and morally. We want our children to grow and develop in a safe and nurturing environment where they are able to express themselves articulately, gain a further understanding of themselves as unique people and build resilience. Brockmoor Primary School encourages children to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. In order to ensure that we met the expectations of the PSHE curriculum and the new RSE curriculum we have brought into a scheme that encompasses all. Our approach to teaching PSHE is intended to support and encourage all learners to be the very best they can be. PSHE is taught weekly as a stand alone session and then the core values are embedded throughout class assemblies.
Our whole school approach to PSHE and RSE is down to the belief that success in these areas will lead to excellence across the whole curriculum. At Brockmoor we deliver the PSHE curriculum through the use of the online scheme SCARF. The curriculum is split into 6 units, one for each half term in school. The curriculum equips our children with meaningful content that places an emphasis on building resilience, nurturing both mental and physical health and communication and language skills. The scheme is tailored by teachers to meet the specific needs of the children in our school. The use of PSHE curriculum is intended to equip our children with the knowledge and skills to make self-informed decisions,. Each session that is taught is recorded through the use of a floor book, classes complete their learning in many different ways including the use of drama, circle time and some written activities. Evidence of these is gathered and then displayed within the floor book for children to look through to recap previous learning. If occasions arise within individual classrooms where teachers feel that an extra PSHE session may be appropriate due to a specific issue this would be encouraged.
Our teaching of PSHE will lead to children meeting the standards of attainments across the school and those that are expected of our children nationally. Children will each make progress relative to their own individual starting point. The implementation and impact of the PSHE curriculum is assessed across school to ensure that children are provided with the best possible chance at succeeding. We strive to ensure that by the end of their time with us at Brockmoor each child will:
