PSHE

Teaching and learning PSHE at Morley Victoria

At Morley Victoria Primary School we realise the importance of preparing our children for the world in which we live today. Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.

We follow a scheme of work called “You, me and PSHE” in Years 1-6. There are 7 strands within the scheme which lay out age appropriate topics for the children to cover-

Identity, society and equality

Drug, alcohol and tobacco education

Physical health and well being

Mental health and emotional well being

Keeping safe and managing risk

Careers, financial capability and economic well being

Sex and relationship education

 

We also supplement this  scheme with a whole range of other vital life skills including: Investors in Pupils, CHIPS (challenging homophobia in primary schools,) British Values, E-safety, fire safety, anti-bullying week, stranger danger, first aid training, Stonewall, road safety, water safety, cycling smart and railway safety.

We establish sets of ground rules when conducting PSHE lessons these are:

  • Listening to others
  • Sharing opinions, right to “pass” and asking questions
  • No assumptions, non-judgemental
  • Using correct or appropriate language
  • Confidentiality
  • Seeking help and advice
