Why we teach PSHE 

At Queen’s Manor Primary School, our Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) and Relationships and Health Education (RHE) curriculum is designed to teach children to become responsible, healthy, respectful, contributing, aspirational moral members of British society. Children’s personal and social development is interlinked in all areas of school life.  

Our curriculum intent sets out the school’s vision to develop the whole child and their individual talents and teach them the skills they need to become active and economically self-sufficient citizens.   

Our curriculum teaches children essential skills for life such as cooperation, teamwork, resilience as well as respect for others and the environment.   

Delivering an ‘education with character’ is at the foundation of all we do. Children are encouraged to develop new talents and qualities unique to them and to express themselves clearly and articulately. We believe that it is vital to facilitate our children to develop the values and skills they will need to become compassionate and driven leaders of the future. Our curriculum is designed to give children knowledge and understanding of where they are from but also of where they could go.   

We will teach children about equality, diversity and what healthy relationships look like and what this means for our society. By teaching children, the importance of British Values, we will be teaching them to become independent and responsible members of our school, the local community and wider society. 

What we teach

PSHE and RHE at Queen’s Manor Primary School underpins everything that we do. The early part of the new school year is spent exploring what it means to be a learner at Queen’s Manor Primary School, we call this ‘orientation.

Children are further supported by utilising the Conscious Discipline approach and the Zones of Regulation (a systematic cognitive behavioural approach, which enables them to regulate their behaviour in a manner conducive to optimum learning in a classroom environment). PSHE and RSE lessons are based around Conscious Discipline, Zones of Regulation and the 1Decision programmes of study. 1Decision’s intent is to provide children with tools to navigate their way through life and to be healthy, happy and successful citizens. 

Through assemblies and daily morning meetings, children learn about the achievements and life stories of inspirational people from Britain and the wider world, giving them opportunities to see what is possible and to learn that with hard work and determination, dreams can be achieved.

Our curriculum outcomes

Our PSHE curriculum contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables them to: recognise, accept and shape their identities; understand and accommodate difference and change; manage emotions; and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others, will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, to develop the essential skills for future employability and to better enjoy and manage their lives.
