Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) equips pupils with the knowledge and skills they need to manage their lives, be healthy and stay safe now and in the future. Our holistic, ambitious curriculum aims to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals.
Our effective PSHE programme enables staff to teach pupils to stay safe and healthy, and build self-esteem, resilience and empathy. It also supports all staff to tackle barriers to learning and raise aspirations for our pupils. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, participating and contributing fully to the life of our school and community.
An important part of the ethos of Chapmanslade School is to recognise and protect the ages of 4 to 11 as a distinct and precious part of childhood. We seek to protect innocence whilst actively preparing our pupils for the next stage of their education. As such, Chapmanslade School believes that it has a moral duty to encourage sensitive discussion around relationships, values, bodies and emotions, and to impart accurate facts about puberty and sex in an age-appropriate way. For more information our full PSHE and RSE curriculum can be found on our website.
We aim to develop children’s awareness of ways to support their well-being. The BBC provides some helpful ideas to use at school and home to scaffold children’s learning.
