PSHCE

Queens’ Federation: Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education Subject Statement

Intent

At the Queens’ Federation we aim to foster ‘Learning for Life.’

We will provide a rich, relevant and inspirational curriculum that promotes a lifelong love of learning and equips our pupils with the key knowledge and understanding, skills and personal qualities that they will need to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Our curriculum is designed to be relevant to our children and is linked to the context of our school and the local community.

PSHCE enables our pupils to become healthy, independent, confident and responsible members of society. Our PSHCE curriculum is accessible to all and aims to maximize outcomes for every pupil so that they know how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as a child and as an adult within the future. The curriculum aims to help pupils understand how they are developing personally and socially and tackles moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Opportunities to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society are incorporated into the curriculum. Having the ability to stay safe and healthy is a high priority and pupils are equipped to make informed decisions.

Implementation

The delivery of the PSHCE curriculum is supported through the use of the Cambridge PSHE Service Framework. The PSHE framework is designed to be age-appropriate for each year group and is adaptable to meet the needs of all pupils. It ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and are sequenced appropriately to maximize learning for all pupils. Themes within the PSHCE curriculum include…

  • Myself and My Relationships
  • Citizenship
  • Healthy and Safer Lifestyles

Throughout the year our pupils take part in a range of special events, key campaigns and themed days and weeks such as anti-bullying week and online safety day. These events provide pupils with opportunities to explore topical issues and enrich our curriculum as children develop and embed their knowledge and skills. Visits and visitors further complement our curriculum and allow pupils to develop an understanding of the community around them. As well as discreet lessons, PSHCE is embedded throughout our curriculum and is also an important part of our school assemblies.

We view assessment as a holistic process, which takes place in every lesson through observation of, in questioning and in conversation with pupils and in the production of written outcomes. PSHCE assessment criteria set out the key knowledge and skills that a pupil should achieve at the end of each unit of work.

Impact

Our intention is that, when children leave the Queens’ Federation, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society. They know how to be healthy, independent and responsible members of society. The spiritual, moral, social, mental and cultural development of our pupils ensures they are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences in the next stage of their lives. Pupil outcomes evidence a broad and balanced PSHCE curriculum and at the end of each year, pupils achieve age related expectations and retain the knowledge and skills learnt from each unit of work.

Children’s Mental Health Week: 7th – 13th February.

During Children’s Mental Health Week, children discussed the theme of growing together. Across the school different activities took place to give children some time to discover how we can all grow together. In Year 3 children discussed a skill they have learnt or developed and how this has changed over time. In Year 1, we thought carefully about how we can look after our bodies and minds together by having a Friday dance party.
