At Caedmon Primary School, our PSHE curriculum ensures that our teaching in this subject focuses on the characteristics of good physical health and mental wellbeing, as well as those of positive relationships. We have written our own PSHE curriculum, including some aspects of the ‘You, Me, PSHE’ scheme, taking into account the DFE guidance on Relationships and Health Education.
We focus on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to healthy friendships, family relationships and relationships with other children and adults that young children are likely to encounter. Our PSHE curriculum also creates an opportunity to enable pupils to be taught about positive physical and mental wellbeing, including ways of being physically healthy and also how friendships can support mental wellbeing. Our PSHE curriculum also includes the themes of keeping safe, careers and drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
Our PSHE curriculum is taught through the key concepts of: Physical Health and Wellbeing; Mental Health and Wellbeing; Keeping Safe and Managing Risk and Identity, Society and Equality.
Each topic in every year group ensures that the children access information at an age appropriate level so that the knowledge and skills needed are built up over their time at primary school for their life now and in the future.
