PSHE

"I am a citizen of the world" Sylvia Beach (writer)

PSHE takes an important part of the curriculum at Priors Hall – a learning community. Pupils will take part in planned lessons across the year, which are grouped into five key topics, that we return to progressively in each year group, making pupils’ prior and future learning clear.

Curriculum Overview

In each year group, the following strands are taught during PSHE sessions:

Family and relationships

Learning how to form respectful relationships with others, deal with conflict and bullying and the importance of challenging stereotypes.

Health and wellbeing

Learning strategies for looking after their mental and physical health, including healthy eating, relaxation techniques, sun safety, immunisation facts and the benefits of sleep.

Safety and the changing body

Learning how to administer first aid in a variety of situations and about safety around medicines, online and road safety and the changes that occur during puberty.

Citizenship

Learning about human rights and the rights of the child, democracy, diversity and community and protecting the environment.

Economic wellbeing

Learning how to make decisions when it comes to spending, budgeting and saving money and exploring different career choices.

Identity (Year 6 unit)

Considering what makes us who we are whilst learning about gender and sexual identity and body image.

EYFS: Reception have slightly different strands which are adapted to fit the Early Learning Goals but cover similar content as above.
