Our curriculum is evaluated before each half term and amended to meet the needs of each class as required.
Anti-bullying week and Children's Mental Health week are addressed as a school.
Various other days/events are also celebrated/recognised throughout the year.
The pshe curriculum here at All Saints' is continually revised and revisited to ensure it meets the needs of our pupils. The documents below outline the pshe curriculum for the previous academic year, 2022-2023. The pshe lead meets each class teacher prior to the end of each half term to evaluate and adjust the upcoming half term to ensure the whole school overview works to meet the personal, social and health needs of pupils in each class. The pshe curriculum, therefore, may differ from year to year.
We believe fully in delivering to our children a PSHE education that covers health and relationships in order to fully prepare every child for life's challenges and opportunities. We will promote healthy, individual and responsible members of society and encourage all children to play a role in contributing to school life through fund raising, supporting charities , organising events and helping peers and others. We allow children to express their opinions and remain open-minded - willing to consider new ideas.
Children will be taught the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other peers and adults. Our teaching will enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
We have developed a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum in partnership with The PSHE Association which is unique to our school and the children.
Our scheme of work also includes opportunities to link British Values, SMSC and school's key values into the curriculum.
Lessons are timetabled and take place every week. Alongside our curriculum, class teachers have some autonomy to address specific needs as and when they arise within their class. Online safety is specifically revisited at least every half term, and readdressed whenever necessary.
We provide the children with a language-rich environment where they have access to key knowledge, language and meanings in order to understand PSHE and use it across the wider curriculum. Links are made to the pshe curriculum content across all areas of the school curriculum.
Whole school, Key Stage and class assemblies always make links to PSHE, British Values and SMSC. We use Picture News within collective worship across school which provides meaningful links to British Values and supports pupils' personal development, whilst providing opportunities for children to learn from our world and develop respect for other’s beliefs, feelings and faiths.
We have a huge focus on mental health and well-being in and out of the classroom. All children access our fantastic outdoor learning environment weekly. Teachers link the curriculum to the outdoors, allowing children to benefit from this experience this environment and the positive impact it can have on well being and mental health.
Outside of the classroom year 5 children become Guardian Angels to the new EYFS children, writing them letters, accompanying them to lunch and caring for them in the playground during their early transition days. These year 5 children then develop their role to become friendship buddies on the playground, supporting children across school who may need support playing with their peers.
We have school librarians, prefects, a curriculum council, eco council, lunch time helpers to name a few - all of which help the children develop into responsible and healthy minded members of society.
We deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all and that maximises the outcomes for every child enabling them to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities, our British values and to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.
Our children go out into the community regularly - visiting residential homes, attending community communion services in church - where they impact on the lives of others. Annually the children organise and run the MacMillan coffee morning. The children take part in fund raising for school projects and for the wider world. Children have previously raised over £600 for school books through a sponsored activity and raised over £1500 on individual fundraising schemes for a primary school in Uganda. See our Out Reach page for more details.
Children live out our school values and link these to our British Values. Children are sociable and interact well with each other and adults.
