Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education and Citizenship
We aim to provide a strong and caring atmosphere where moral and spiritual values are developed throughout the whole curriculum. We believe that by developing the ‘whole person’ we will enable individuals to lead a rewarding, satisfying and fulfilling life. Personal, Social ,Health and Economic Education and Citizenship, provides the opportunity for all members of the school community to explore and understand their relationship to themselves, others and to the world we live in.
At Morton Church of England Primary School we teach PSHE and Citizenship through 3 strands of knowledge, skills and attitudes. Through All 3 key stages, the areas for study are:
- Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities.
- Preparing to play an active role as citizens.
- Developing a healthy safe lifestyle
- Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people.
The school has adopted a framework from the PSHE Association as our framework for delivering PSHE. This is progressive across each year group and the learning is built on year on year.
Topics covered included:
-Physical and Mental wellbeing
-Sex and relationships education
-Personal safety including e-safety and bullying
In addition to these weekly sessions we also plan in enrichment activities to raise the profile of key areas we feel our pupils need to develop.
These have included;
-A visit from the Life Education Bus -focussing on Drug Education.
-Year 6-safer cycling course
-Lunchtime clubs to develop confidence and friendships
Our eldest pupils go on a residential visit to Caythorpe Court. This visit is chosen for the personal development opportunities as well as the educational experiences. During this week we often see the biggest leaps of confidence!
Relationships, Health and Sex Education
We follow our Relationships, Health and Sex Education policy which has been set up in accordance with county and national support information.
The School has a scheme of work for the delivery of Drugs Education that is cross-curricular.
