PSHE (including Health and Relationship information)

Our Intention

We believe that personal, social and health education (PSHE) is vital to support pupil's mental health and emotional wellbeing. The emphasis this year has very much been on children getting physical and being outdoors, both of which have many benefits including improving cognitive function, mood and developing fitness.  Above all, we aim to ensure pupils feel safe, valued and welcome at Netherthorpe so that they are able to learn, catch up on the time they missed and enjoy being part of the school community. We also want pupils to develop an understanding of emotions (both their own and those of other people) and to help them learn healthy coping strategies.  

 

Implementation

This year, because of our priorities being slightly different, we are deviating from some aspects of the curriculum.  The majority of the PSHE topics and objectives will be covered through classwork, links to other subjects and assemblies. 

In the summer term, we will begin introducing the new SRE curriculum so that children will be prepared as citizens for the wider world.

Impact

Our pupils will feel happy at Netherthorpe and view the school as a place of consistency where they can feel safe.  They will have a range of strategies for understanding their emotions and those of others.  They will have made good progress in their learning and be ready for secondary school and the wider community by the time they leave us.
