At John Burns Primary School, we use the PSHE Association scheme of work to inform our teaching of Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE).
PSHE is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These skills and attributes help pupils to stay healthy, safe and prepare them for life and work in modern Britain.
The scheme of work is broken down into three core themes:
- Living in the Wider World
- Health and Wellbeing
Living in the Wider World focuses on belonging to a community, money management, career aspirations and staying safe online.
Health and Wellbeing teaches children how to look after their physical health and mental wellbeing, how to stay safe in different situations and how our body grows and changes as we get older.
The theme of Relationships focuses on how children can respect themselves and others. They learn how to make new friends and maintains friendships, family dynamics and how families differ, as well as safe relationships with peers and recognising risks.
