At Grove Primary we teach P.S.H.E. in every year from Nursery to Year 6, which is taught and modelled across the day through lessons, assemblies, break times, and through discrete lessons taught weekly. We use specialist input when needed, such as the School Nurse, to supplement our teaching.
The teaching of P.S.H.E. is reinforced through our Golden Behaviours for Learning:
P.S.H.E. is Personal Social and Health Education which we teach through the topics of:
In the Early Years the focus is on:
Health and Self Care - Children know the importance for good health of physical exercise, and a healthy diet, and talk about ways to keep healthy and safe. They manage their own basic hygiene and personal needs successfully, including dressing and going to the toilet independently.
Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness - Children are confident to try new activities, and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group, will talk about their ideas, and will choose the resources they need for their chosen activities. They say when they do or don’t need help.
Managing Feelings and Behaviour - Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others’ behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable. They work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules. They adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.
Making Relationships - Children play co-operatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
