P.S.H.E.

Personal, Social and Health Education

At St John’s our motto is ‘nurturing the potential in everyone’. We believe that in order for effective learning to take place, our children need to develop a sense of self-worth, well-being, confidence to express their opinions and feel appreciated, so they can achieve their best.

 

As such, St John’s aims to offer a broad, balanced and meaningful PSHE curriculum to all our children. This includes explicit links to Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) development and Fundamental British Values (FBV). We believe that this will enable each individual to become a happy, healthy, independent, well-rounded and responsible member of society.

 

PSHE and Citizenship is taught in a variety of ways. Whilst some objectives are covered through discreet PSHE lessons, other aspects are covered through different areas of the school’s curriculum. For example, RE and Collective Worship allow children to engage with spiritual and moral questions. Science units also cover some of the aspects of PSHE.

 

Every child’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is individual but is guided by our discrete PSHE lessons and through the variety of enrichment opportunities we offer. We follow the SEAL programme (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) for PSHE which is organised into themes which are then linked to our school values:

 

Term 1) New Beginnings - Inclusivity

Term 2) Getting On and Falling Out - Empathy

Term 3) Going for Goals – Passion for Learning and ‘Nurturing the Potential in Everyone’

Term 4) It’s Good to be Me - Honesty

Term 5) Relationships – Respect

Term 6) Change – Courage

 

SEAL aims to equip children with the skills they need to become independent and responsible individuals as they take their place in our community. PSHE is taught from Early Years through to Year 6. They are mostly discussion based sessions which are not formally assessed as they are an opportunity for children to discover their voice and grow as individuals.

 

At St. John’s we aim to develop our children’s understanding of health; emotionally, spiritually and physically. We are proud to have been awarded the Healthy Schools award with healthy school meal options offered daily. Dependent on availability, we offer Bikeability training to Year 6. We employ a trained councillor who is available for ‘Talk Time’ sessions to help children through emotional difficulties they may be experiencing in their lives.
