What is Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) Education?
PSHE education is a planned programme that supports and enhances the learning and development of children and young people. The programme allows children to acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives, now and in the future.
At Upperby Primary School we want all children to successfully develop qualities, skills and attributes they need to thrive as happy children and pupils, well-rounded individuals, and family members and members of society. Our You Can Do It and PSHE programmes play a vital role in supporting positive development.
PSHE prepares our children to manage many of the most important and critical opportunities they will face growing up. They learn how to deal with life challenges, face difficulties head on and become responsible for their actions and behaviour in such a rapidly challenging and changing time. PSHE helps children to apply the knowledge and understanding they learn in all subjects to practical, real-life situations while helping them to feel safe and secure enough to fulfill their academic potential.
Live Well, Learn Well.
At Upperby Primary School, we use the guidance material from the Lancashire Grid for Learning. The Live Well, Learn Well pack develops key skills, knowledge and understanding through different units of work across Key stage 1 & 2. Each area taught is presented at an age-appropriate level. All children cover each unit but the content detail may vary and the activities they experience may be very different. To support our half termly units we use Scarf Coram Life Education Resources.
Themes covered are as follows;
At Upperby Primary School we believe that everyone deserves to be happy and free from discrimination and bullying. Therefore Anti-Bullying themes and activities are embedded and regularly developed across the curriculum. Teachers plan activities to promote diversity and equality. Homophobic bullying is challenged, Upperby Values are part of daily life and You Can Do It skills are promoted.
‘Postcards of Kindness' encourages people to send postcards to residential homes in the UK to help combat loneliness. As one of our Upperby values is 'Caring for others' we aim to spread kindness and promote caring for others by joining in and creating Remembrance Day themed postcards.
