Marlborough Primary School
Our curriculum will deliver appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding to fulfil the three new PSHE strands health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. Children will have accurate and relevant knowledge of PSHE and will be given the opportunities to explore and challenge a range of values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities in order to equip them with the skills they will need later in life with their families, jobs and financial stability. We promote an understanding of how to be part of a wider community as a healthy, independent and responsible citizen.
The PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education) curriculum is an integral part of our whole school curriculum and covers aspects of Relationship Education, Health Education, the Equality Act and Puberty. Our programme of study has been designed to consider a range of themes and issues that young people may encounter throughout their lives and encourages them to use developing social skills and knowledge to identify risks and make safe decisions. We believe that the promotion of pupils’ personal and social development fundamentally underpins all other learning.
Our aim is to enrich and empower our pupils to have an understanding of safeguarding and to provide them with a safe platform to seek knowledge, ask questions and raise their concerns. Through our PSHE curriculum and our school ethos, we promote pupils’ self-esteem and emotional well-being, British values and provide the skills that pupils will need to leave primary school as healthy, secure, tolerant, ethical citizens who are aware of their rights and responsibilities, not just towards themselves but also towards others.
We aim to develop pupils understanding so that they:
- develop confidence to make the most of their abilities, through recognising their own worth
- develop their confidence and self-esteem which enables them to put forward their own views but also understand the views of others
- work well with others through a process of collaboration
- prepare to play an active role as citizens in a diverse society
- develop a healthy and safe lifestyle with the ability to take appropriate risk assessments
- have the confidence to question when something is wrong
- develop good relationships and respect the differences between members of the school and the wider community
- make a positive contribution to the life of the school
