Intent: The layout of our curriculum, the units, and WHY they are taught in a particular order. What we expect the children to learn at St George’s and why.
Implementation: How we get the children to accomplish what we set out for them – what kinds of resources will we use. What sorts of tasks they will complete. How we assess the children and ensure they make progress.
Impact: Using assessment to look at how each year group will move on and develop. Looking at the impact of each unit and how it links to previous learning and future learning. What will PSHE look like at the end of their St George’s journey?
At St George’s Infant School, we aim to provide high quality PSHE provision that will support pupils to develop life skills, which will enable them to manage change, make healthy and safe choices, build character and be resilient, and be reflective and responsible members of society.
Our PSHE provision is age appropriate and sensitive to the needs of our whole school community, providing our pupils with an education which will support them both now and in the future. We also provide an inclusive curriculum that promotes understanding and mutual respect for all. We reflect diversity within our curriculum to ensure that no pupil feels excluded and we teach pupils to understand, respect and celebrate difference and challenge stigma.
Our PSHE provision extends beyond the curriculum and includes themed days /
weeks and fully supports our school’s ethos and values. PSHE is part of our school’s broad and balanced curriculum supporting spiritual, moral, social and cultural education, citizenship, equalities, and safeguarding.
The personal, social, health and economic development of our pupils, is a vital element of education. We aim to work collaboratively with parents / carers, to ensure our children are well informed and supported to make healthy, safe and positive choices in all aspects of their daily lives.
Supporting these aims is our vision “Inspire, Believe, Achieve. With God all things are possible”. This shared vision underpins everything we do at St George’s; enabling our children to become successful learners and caring, thoughtful individuals.
At St George’s Infant School, PSHE is taught following the DFE Statutory guidance for Relationships and Health Education
In KS1, PSHE is taught consistently in standalone lessons, once a week for one
hour, but is discretely taught in many different contexts throughout all areas of the curriculum.
Early Years teachers carefully observe their pupils and create learning opportunities to suit their pupils’ interests and current events. Through continuous provision, children are able to access activities linked to PSHE.
At St George’s we promote independence for all students to take responsibility in their own learning, therefore we have implemented self-assessment KWHL grids, which the children use as a working document to track their achievements and progress at the beginning, during and at the end of a topic.
At St George’s, our aim for PSHE is to provide pupils with well-chosen opportunities and contexts, to explore and embed new knowledge, that can be used confidently in real life situations.
