Personal Social Health and Economic Education

At New Monument Primary School, the intent of our Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and which enables our pupils to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society - providing them with a foundation of life skills for home, school and community contexts. It aims to support pupils 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 pupils with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.Our pupils are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community. Our PSHE education curriculum develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills which enables pupils to access the wider curriculum and to prepare them to be a global citizen now and in their future roles within a global community.

We have in place a clear, comprehensive and progressive scheme of learning (Coram Life Education: SCARF) in line with the National Curriculum.

Our PSHE education curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world.

The scheme of learning we use also includes opportunities to link British Values, our School Values and SMSC into the curriculum.

Our pupils will have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use across the wider curriculum.

Wider curriculum subjects will make links to PSHE education, British Values, SMSC and the language is used consistently by all staff.

PSHE education, British Values and SMSC displays and assemblies throughout school reinforce the PSHE curriculum enabling pupils to make links.

The PSHE education curriculum will promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepare them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life. Our RSE curriculum will enable pupils to develop positive and healthy relationships with their peers both now and in the future.

The impact of the PSHE curriculum we provide will be that our pupils will demonstrate and apply the British Values of Democracy, Tolerance, Mutual respect, Rule of law and Liberty as well as our school’s chosen values. Our pupils will demonstrate a healthy outlook towards school – attendance will be in-line with national expectations and behaviour will be good.
