It is our intent that we provide a PSHCE curriculum that successfully develops the qualities that our pupils require to flourish in our society. This includes raising awareness of current affairs and/or issues that our pupils are facing. Also, by providing opportunities to work as part of a team and by challenging pupils in order to develop their resilience and perseverance.

Throughout the curriculum, pupils are provided with opportunities to deepen their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. This includes using current affairs and cultural experiences to enable them to become thoughtful and caring citizens within school, and within society. An example of this is pupils visit different places of worship allowing them to be reflective of their own beliefs and respectful of others. Opportunities are also planned throughout the curriculum for pupils to develop a sense of enjoyment and fascination in learning about themselves, others and the world around them and for them to use their imagination and creativity in their learning.

As a result of robust curriculum provision, pupils have a good understanding of, and are able to discuss/ debate confidently about, how to keep safe, including their understanding of e-safety and different forms of bullying. Pupils have an age-appropriate weekly debating session linked areas such as British Values, inclusivity and mental health. This is linked to a key issue in the news and further develops their cultural development, understanding of the world, their moral development and how to keep safe. For example, children investigate the issue of radicalisation.
