To build a supportive and inclusive curriculum that enables children to become confident, self-aware, healthy, respectful and resilient individuals.
The National Curriculum states:
All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice. Schools are also free to include other subjects or topics of their choice in planning and designing their own programme of education.
PSHE is an important and necessary part of all children's education. As PSHE is currently non-statutory, we have devised a tailored curriculum at Broomwood, drawing on best practice and have developed this to reflect the needs of the children within our school. Our PSHE programme aims to equip all pupils with a sound understanding of 12 key strands as outlined in the Curriculum Overview and these are interwoven through Literacy, Maths and foundation subjects as well as taught discretely. Visitors, trips and assemblies provide a real life context for the children to apply their learning. In addition to this, through the wider ethos of the school we promote British Values, citizenship, resilience, respect and safety and these are embedded into the staff's holistic approach to the learning and education of our children.
