PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Economic Education) At St. Anne's School
The PSHE lead at St. Anne’s is Miss Lawrence.
Our intention is that when children leave St. Anne’s, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse 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.
In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being. Our PSHE curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them to be confident and happy citizens.
EYFS - In the Foundation Stage, PSHE and citizenship is taught as an integral part of topic work and is embedded throughout the curriculum. The objectives taught are the Personal, Social and Emotional Development statements from ‘Development Matters in the EYFS’ and the PSED Early Learning Goals.
Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 - At Key Stage 1 and 2, PSHE is taught through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work called ‘Connect PSHE’. Connect PSHE covers all of the statutory outcomes through allowing the children to engage in six wellbeing behaviours. Connect PSHE is a spiral curriculum, which means the same topic is covered across the school at the same time but learning is deepened each year. This encourages reinforcement of previously-learned concepts, which promotes the retention of skills in later years.
