Retention – Application – Inspiration – Success for Everyone
Our Curriculum has been designed by Halewood C of E to provide for the spiritual, emotional, physical, mental and social development of the whole child; this includes a growth in knowledge and understanding of self, and the world in which we live. We aim to provide a bespoke, unique and exciting curriculum tailor-made to suit our children, their learning and their futures. Our curriculum is planned to ensure it will build upon what children already know in a sequential way to give them powerful knowledge, vocabulary and skills.
We maintain a broad and balanced approach to our curriculum, which foster attitudes and qualities which will enable them to become confident, caring, respectful and responsible citizens. We seek to foster self-esteem and a sense of responsibility to others and the world around.
Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education is a vital part out of RAISE curriculum. We want the children to have a good sense of self and others around them and be good citizens in our world.
We believe that we are fulfilling this command when we enable children of all faiths and none to flourish in our schools and to gain every opportunity to live fulfilled lives.
Attributes of a good PSHE Learner:
The Christian Values, our Christian Vision and our school ethos ‘Where children believe, achieve and succeed’ are the heart of what we do. The PSHE curriculum fosters and develops our learning attitudes as an integral part of our lessons.
A carefully sequenced PSHE and RSE curriculum ensures children are experiencing all three themes: Relationships, Economic well-being and Health and well-being. Our PSHE curriculum is built around the PSHE and Safeguarding Curriculum Map and topics have been sequenced based on the needs of the age group. Children have the opportunity to listen to and work with outside companies and external visitors from key job roles, planned and booked in at the beginning of the year. A carefully planned PSHE sequence provides the opportunity for children to discuss and share their own views and opinions, helping children to make informed choices and also acquire an understand and experiences of British Values. Children develop their confidence to talk, share and present to others.
Example of PSHE books
At Halewood C of E, we continuously assess the implementation and impact of our lessons in order to achieve these outstanding results across all year groups. Our school values: friendship, hope, forgiveness, thankfulness, responsibility and perseverance are the heart of what we do and we ensure that we provide the support that is necessary for all children to achieve.
As with all curricular areas we encourage children to take an active role in their learning during PSHE and RSE sessions, and use a variety of approaches including whole class and small group discussions and role play. We try to ensure an honest and balanced approach in the handling of any controversial issues.
