Our intention is that, when children leave Etz Chaim Primary School, they do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active role in today’s society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.
What do we want for our pupils?
- Develop a confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions with others
- Develop skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe
- Develop an attitude of a responsible global citizen
- To show tolerance of others beliefs, religions and life choices
- To build positive, respectful relationships with other people
How do we deliver PSHE at Etz Chaim Primary School:
The school curriculum will focus on three core learning themes: health and wellbeing,
relationships and living in the wider world. The Scheme of work also includes opportunities
to link British Values, Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) and schools key skills into the curriculum.
Children have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and to use across the wider curriculum. The children have a variety of forums to discuss this including but not limited to whole school, key stage and class assemblies. There are also circle meetings run on a monthly basis. The school employs the zones of regulation as a self-regulator of emotions for anyone within the school, and this is coupled with the Heads Up training. There is also a range of cross-curricular opportunities for PSHE to be integrated into the other subject areas, some examples are but not limited to Jewish Studies and the weekly Middah, Maths in which the value of money is explored and science in which the human body is taught.
We believe that a meaningful PSHE curriculum is the key to children becoming confident,
tolerant and well-rounded adults.
- Children can approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life.
- From exposure to a range of global issues and problems, children can build up tolerance and a sense of responsibility of being a global citizen.
- From engagement with a variety of Educate and Celebrate texts, children can understand the different lifestyles that people may live and be respectful and tolerant towards those leading different lives to themselves.
