PSHE at Telford Infant School
At Telford Infant School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
Teaching and Learning
At Telford Infant School we have created our own PSHE curriculum to suit our pupils, school and community; giving careful consideration to our school ethos and aims and our pupils’ needs.
We follow the PSHE Associations’ three core themes: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. Each year group covers content related to each theme every year, one that revisits themes, gradually extending thinking, expanding knowledge and developing skills. We aim to make constant links to previous learning and experiences, and build upon these.
Where possible we make cross-curricular links between PSHE and other subjects; this is particularly true and relevant in English, Religious Education, Physical Education, History and Geography, with other content also linking to Maths, Science and Computing.
PSHE learning comes in many different forms: through whole-class teaching, group activities, individual tasks and assemblies.
