At Broomfield South SILC PSHCE is a vital part of our ethos. We focus on developing pupil's emotional, social, health, cultural and personal growth through discrete lessons and holistic teaching. Our PSHCE/SRE curriculum has been built to support and challenge the ’whole child’, to develop and promote their social, mental and physical development and prepare them for their journey into adulthood. This will give pupils knowledge and skills to make informed decisions and make choices that will affect their daily life and provides our pupils with the foundations for understanding the world as independently as possible. The PHSE curriculum is taught in three core themes, these are:
- Health and wellbeing
- Living in the Wider World
PSHCE is taught very differently across the school. Pupils who can access the formal curriculum participate on 1-2 lessons per week however pupils who access the informal curriculum work towards their Personal Target which have a PSHCE focus. We use age appropriate, stimulating, engaging and hands-on activities to promote discussion throughout school at all ages and abilities.
From September 2020 it became statutory for all primary schools to provide Relationships Education & Health Education and all secondary schools to provide Relationships and Sex Education & Health Education. The process for implementing the new curriculum involved consultation with all stakeholders – parents, pupils, teachers and school governors. Parents are kept informed about the PSHE curriculum via the half termly newsletter.
