Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE)
At Amesbury Archer Primary School, we acknowledge that PSHE is essential if young people are to make responsible and well informed decisions about their lives. It should not be delivered in isolation. It should be firmly rooted in the school culture: through discrete lessons, across the curriculum and in extra-curricular and enrichment activities. PSHE is strongly linked to the Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural values and ethos of the school.
At Amesbury Archer, we follow the Wiltshire Learn4Life syllabus for Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE). During our PSHE learning, we encourage our children to become well-rounded individuals by supporting their emotional and physical well-being.
The planned PSHE programme is taught weekly as a discreet lesson as well as through other curriculum areas (e.g. RE and computing) and within the whole school ethos.
PSHE is delivered through a range of teaching styles which include:
- circle time
- group discussions
- problem solving
The aims of PSHE lesson are to:
- know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle (e.g. the benefits of physical activity, rest, healthy eating and dental health)
- be aware of safety issues (including road safety, the correct use of medicines and online safety)
- understand what makes for good relationships with others
- have respect for others
- be an independent and responsible member of our school community
- develop self-confidence and self-esteem enabling them to make informed choices
- be positive and active members of the wider community (e.g. what improves and harms their local environment)
Over the year we cover the following topics:
- Citizenship (Me & My Community)
- Economic Wellbeing
- Sex & Relationship Education
- Healthy Lifestyle & Drug Education
- Resilience & Preparing for Change
