Westward School

PSHE SCHEME OF WORK INCLUDING SPIRITUAL, MORAL, SOCIAL AND CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT

 

 

Aims and Objectives

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) enables children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. Pupils are actively encouraged to play a positive role in contributing to the life of the school and the wider community. In doing so we help to develop pupils sense of worth and we teach them how society is organised and governed. We teach them about their rights and responsibilities and enable them to learn to appreciate what it means to be a positive member of a culturally diverse society.

Westward is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all pupils so they can learn and develop in a relaxed and secure environment. 

The spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils is extremely important and pupils are supported on a daily basis through the school’s ethos, during assemblies (See assembly policy) and across many areas of the curriculum including PSHE sessions.

Through our teaching we aim to enable the children to:

  • Know and understand what constitutes a healthy lifestyle;
  • Be aware of safety issues;
  • Develop self confidence and self esteem, and make informed choices regarding personal and social issues;
  • Recognise potential risks and know how to manage these risks safely;
  • Understand what makes good healthy relationships with others;
  • Be independent and responsible members of the school community;
  • Be positive and active members of a democratic society;
  • Encourage respect for democracy and support for participation in the democratic process, including respect for the basis on which law is made and applied in England.
  • Accept responsibility for their behaviour, show initiative and understand how they can contribute positively to the lives of those living and working in the locality in which the school is situated and to society more widely;
  • Distinguish between right and wrong and to respect the civil and criminal law of England;
  • Develop positive relationships with other members of the school and the wider community;
  • Encourage respect for other people, paying particular regard to the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010;
  • Further tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions by enabling pupils to acquire an appreciation of and respect for their own and other cultures;
  • Acquire a broad general knowledge and respect for public institutions and services in England; 

Throughout their time at Westward the school will actively promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of the law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with other faiths and beliefs.

At Westward these values are reinforced regularly and in the following way.

Democracy

Pupils from Nursery upwards have the opportunity to have their voices heard through our school council. Twice yearly a mock general election is held which is based solely on pupil votes. The elections for posts of responsibility in Year 6 including house captains, prefects, games captains and buddies are held at the beginning of the academic year with the pupils running their own election campaigns. Posts of responsibility play a vital part in the running of the school and are considered as very prestigious by the pupils. Democracy is also explored across other areas of the curriculum for example 'The Ancient Greek' history topic in Year 5. 'In the News' discussions are held on a regular basis.

The Rule of Law

The importance of laws whether they be those that govern the class, the school, or the country, are consistently reinforced throughout regular school days, as well as when dealing with behaviour and through school assemblies. The pupils sign the home school agreement every term. Pupils are taught the value and reasons behind laws, that they govern and protect us, the responsibilities that this involves and the consequences when laws are broken. Visits from authorities such as the police, fire service etc are regular parts of our calendar and help reinforce this message.

The Rule of Law is also taught through the Citizenship strand of our PSHE Scheme of Work framework, ‘Rights, Rules and Responsibilities’.

Individual Liberty

Within school, pupils are actively encouraged to make choices, knowing that they are in safe and supportive environment. As a school we educate and provide boundaries for young pupils to make choices safely through provision of a safe environment and empowering education. Pupils are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms and advised how to exercise these safely, for example through our e-safety lessons, assemblies and PSHE scheme of work . Through participation in our numerous extra curricular clubs and opportunities, pupils are given the freedom to make choices.

Mutual Respect

Part of our school ethos and behaviour policy revolves around core values such as "respect" and pupils have been part of discussions in assemblies related to what this means and how this is shown. Posters around the school promote respect for others and this is reiterated through our classroom and learning rules, as well as our behaviour policy. We also have a buddy, prefect and young leader system in place which allows the older children in the school to act as role models and care for the younger ones, promoting friendship, building confidence and developing responsibility.

Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs

This is achieved through enhancing pupils understanding of their place in a culturally diverse society and by giving them opportunities to experience such diversity through assemblies, themed weeks and the PSHE scheme of work. Members of different faiths or religions are encouraged to share their knowledge to enhance learning within classes and the school.

Teaching and Learning Styles

PSHE is taught as a discrete subject by the class teacher for one hour every week with two half hourly sessions timetabled for each class throughout the school.

In addition to this PSHE forms an integral part of the ethos of the school as a whole. Pupils attend three assemblies per week led by members of staff and are also provided with a range of everyday experiences which play an important part in promoting the social, moral, spiritual, cultural, economic, mental and physical development of our pupils.  

PSHE is taught through a range of teaching and learning styles appropriate to the activity and emphasis is placed on active learning. Lessons can include discussion, practical work, drama, role-play, research, circle time, brainstorming, debating, receiving visitors and class work following a visiting speaker.

PSHE Curriculum Planning

At Westward we use the ‘Cambridgeshire Primary Personal Development Programme’ framework which is designed to build progressively, adding skills and knowledge as the pupils grow and mature and journey from Nursery through to Year 6.

The framework covers four colour coded key strands in personal development;

  • Myself and My Relationships (Blue)
  • Healthy and Safer Lifestyles (Green)
  • Citizenship (Purple)
  • Economic Wellbeing (Red)

These strands cover all existing learning outcomes specified in the National Curriculum, selected areas of learning for the Early Years Foundation Stage and incorporate a range of other important areas like Personal safety education and promoting British Values.

Currently class teachers plan blocks of work following the scheme of work listed below. Teachers follow the medium term plan, using resources available in school, online resources and websites and contributions and visits from representatives of outside agencies.

The PSHE Scheme of work is as follows;

See appendix 1 for more detailed information about the content of each unit.

During the Lower School pupils learn about themselves as developing individuals and as members of their communities, building on their own experiences and on the early learning goals for personal, social and emotional development. They learn the basic rules and skills for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for behaving well. They have opportunities to show they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. They begin to learn about their own and other people's feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of other children and older people. As members of a class and school community, they learn social skills such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, resolve simple arguments and resist bullying. They begin to take an active part in the life of the school and its neighbourhood.

During the Upper School pupils learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of their communities. They become more mature, independent and self-confident. They learn about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it. They develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions. They learn how to take part more fully in school and community activities. As they begin to develop into young adults, they face the changes of puberty and transfer to secondary school with support and encouragement from their school. They learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment; to take more responsibility, individually and as a group, for their own learning; and to resist bullying.

There are many opportunities for learning outside taught time, such as Class and School Council meetings, LAMDA (Years 1, 2 & 3) and ESB (Years 4 & 6) examinations, fundraising projects, Pedals road safety (Years 1 & 2), Bikeability Level 1 (Year 5) and Level 2 (Year 6) Award, the Westward Bank supported by the HSBC (Years 5 & 6), inter-house activities and links with the wider community.

We offer a variety of educational visits which offer opportunities for PSHE as well as supporting the teaching and learning of other curriculum areas. Annually Years 3 & 4 pupils go on a three day residential trip to New Barn in Dorset and Years 5 & 6 pupils go on a three day residential trip to PGL, Windmill Hill in Sussex. There is particular focus on developing pupils’ self esteem and giving opportunities to develop leadership and co-operative skills through a range of outward bound and team work activities.

Ground Rules

Ground rules are set, in consultation between the pupils and the teacher, to ensure all pupils feel comfortable and safe and are able to communicate effectively during PSHE sessions. In the Lower School these ground rules may state simply that each pupil listens to others, values others’ comments and does not use personal names when discussing sensitive situations. Older pupils may include an agreement on what kind of language is appropriate.

Teaching PSHE to children with special educational needs:

At Westward we teach PSHE to all children, whatever their ability. PSHE forms part of the school curriculum policy to provide a broad and balanced education to all our children. Through our PSHE teaching we provide learning opportunities that enable all pupils to make progress. We do this by setting suitable learning challenges and responding to each child’s different needs.

ICT

Opportunities for the use of ICT and cross-curricular links are built into the planning, delivery and assessment of this subject. Safe use of ICT is taught at all stages.

Assessment and Recording

Pupils have folders in which to keep their PSHE work. These folders are passed throughout the school from year to year. However, when PSHE is part of another subject such as Geography or Science, it will be recorded in those books.

In addition much of our PSHE work is covered through discussion and activity therefore there is not always a written record.

Pupils will be given opportunities to evaluate activities, to reflect on their own learning and to assess their own progress.

Resources

Resources are kept in the staff room; however teachers delivering PSHE may keep the resources they are using within their own classrooms. All teachers have access to the relevant plans and resources from the Cambridge Scheme of Work.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is addressed when agreeing ground rules, to promote a safe learning environment and also minimise the risk of inappropriate or unplanned disclosure in the classroom. However there are implications of disclosure for child protection and all staff are aware of procedures in the event of a child protection issue arising. Staff and adults working with children should make it very clear to pupils that they cannot promise total confidentiality and must not try to investigate any issues themselves. They should contact the DSL Designated Safeguarding Lead if an issue arises.

Political Views

At Westward we preclude the promotion of partisan political views in the teaching of any subject in the school and we take such steps that are reasonably practicable to ensure that where political issues are brought to the attention of pupils, they are offered a balanced presentation of opposing views.

This policy should be read in conjunction with the Sex and Relationships Education policy (Currently under development for launch in the 2016/17 Academic Year), Safeguarding and Child Protection policy and the Anti-bullying policy.
