PSHE Curriculum

At Woodley Primary School, our Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) curriculum intends to inspire and challenge all our children to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life in modern British society. Through the delivery of our fun and engaging curriculum, we aspire to empower our children to be critical thinkers and problem solvers, who have a thirst for knowledge of their diverse world, locally, nationally and globally.

Within a safe and caring environment, we strive to give our children the confidence and resilience to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Our restorative approach teaches our children how to take responsibility for their personal development, behaviour, welfare and safeguarding.

Whilst we follow a coherently planned and sequenced PSHE curriculum, which is taught through assemblies, ‘Circles’ and Jigsaw lessons, we recognise the need for flexibility within this in order to successfully match it to the needs of each individual child and to address current issues as and when they arise at home, in school or in our wider world.

We understand that PSHE goes hand in hand with everything we do at Woodley and we believe that our school culture nurtures the further development of this throughout all aspects of our school day. We encourage all of our pupils to look for opportunities to exhibit our school values of CARE and we challenge them to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life within our Woodley family and in the wider community.
