PSHE

In PSHE children learn ways of becoming healthier, more independent and more responsible members of society.  Children are encouraged and taught to identify and articulate feelings and emotions, learn to manage new and difficult situations positively and form and maintain effective relationships with a wide range of people.  PSHE helps children to feel positive about who they are and enjoy healthy, safe, responsible and fulfilled lives.  Through active learning opportunities, pupils recognise and manage risk, take increasing responsibility for themselves, their choices and behaviours and make positive contributions to their families, schools and communities.

At West Acton we follow the Ealing Scheme of Work for PSHE  and working closely with the Local Authority on incorporating changes to the RSE modules of the curriculum.

Intent


At West Acton, we use the Ealing PSHE scheme of work. PSHE planning is ambitious for all pupils and is coherently planned and sequenced to ensure that pupils build on and gain new knowledge and skills as they progress through primary school. Our curriculum is broad and balanced to ensure that pupils leave primary school with the knowledge and skills to keep themselves physically healthy, mentally healthy and safe. We also aim to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attitudes they will need to be active, respectful and engaged citizens of modern Britain.

Implementation:


Our PSHE curriculum has a wide range of child-centred activities to ensure the learning is enjoyable for pupils. The scheme of work is based on the learning descriptors laid out in the DfE’s ‘Statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education guidance’. These learning descriptors are outlined at the beginning of each unit of planning to ensure teachers know the expected standard of learning that pupils should attain at the end of each unit of work. Our scheme of work contains both formative and summative assessment opportunities that support teachers to assess PSHE knowledge, and how these are applied within social and emotional skills development. PSHE is taught as a discrete lesson once a week but also forms an integral part of the values and ethos of our school.

Impact:


The impact of our PSHE curriculum is also seen in the way pupils interact with others, the way in which can keep themselves mentally and physically healthy, the respect pupils have for other people and the way in which pupils can keep themselves and people around them safe. The impact of PSHE is not just seen in academic progress within the subject, it is also seen in the way pupils become active, respectful and engaged citizens of modern Britain.

Cultural Capital


Our PSHE curriculum enables pupils to build their cultural capital guiding them in becoming responsible, safe and happy citizens in society. The scheme of work provide them with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need in order to succeed as individuals and members of society. Through PSHE, pupils learn how to challenge themselves physically and mentally, thrive for opportunities and manage any challenges, which they may face growing up. It is essential for these lessons to be taught in order for our children to gain and develop their cultural awareness.

Home Learning


Home learning in PSHE is encouraged through home projects for children to complete with their families relating to the three main themes in our curriculum; Health and wellbeing, Living in the wider world and Relationships. We also set home learning task for relaxation and mindfulness activities, encouraging families and pupils to have quality family time.

MONEY TWIST

In Years 4 and 5 we deliver Money Twist, funded by Kickstart Money and delivered by MyBnk.  It is a financial education programme designed to help set positive money habits and mindsets from an early age. The expert trainers deliver live and secure lessons to our school as pupils complete activities in class. This is combined with teacher resources and family challenges. 

The programme consists of an assembly and three sessions led by expert trainers and complemented by resources for teachers and carers. Case studies, games, videos and popular culture are all used to encourage students to explore and form their own opinions on money and their relationship with it.

There are three workshops, differentiated for Lower KS2 (7-8 year olds) and Upper KS2 (9-11 year olds).

FAMILY MONEY TWIST

KickStart Money has also funded a free online financial education programme, which can be completed at home by children aged 5-7, with the support of a guardian, and aged 7-11 independently. These home-learning sessions have been designed to complement our Money Twist primary school offering to bring money to life and begin a child’s financial education journey.

Family Money Twist is designed to improve childrens’ understanding of the value of money and delayed gratification by making spending and saving decisions and gaining rewards, by tackling often difficult topics such as income and the household finances. Sessions cover key issues of where money comes from, everyday costs, needs and wants, tracking spending and saving.

There are two online programmes, differentiated by key primary age groups:
