Subject Lead - Miss R.Swift
At Priory Lane Community School, we are all responsible and respectful children!
PSHE is an integral part of the national curriculum, and is at the core of what we do to ensure children become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of society. Through our school’s approach to PSHE, children are given the skills and knowledge of how to navigate the complexities of life. PSHE is a subject which we embed across all subjects and everyday school life.
The RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) national curriculum puts a clear emphasis on the following two areas of learning, which are further broken into subcategories:
At Priory Lane Community School, PSHE is taught weekly through our ‘School Drivers’ sessions. This approach ensures children are provided with regular opportunities to focus on key areas within the RSE curriculum. Each week, the children will participate in an activity within their class which will equip them with strategies to look after their mental wellbeing.
We have a yearly PSHE Long Term Plan for each year group to follow, to ensure all aspects of the statutory RSE curriculum are covered. Children can explore the key areas through a variety of methods, including role play, scenario discussions and designing posters. Knowledge and skills have been carefully mapped across each area of the curriculum to ensure progression across year groups, build upon knowledge, skills and understanding each year.
The PSHE curriculum at Priory Lane Community School looks like:
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
