Learning about ourselves and others
Vision for PSHRE (Intent)
PSHRE at Mayfield, is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum. Our PSHRE curriculum has been designed to build and broaden children’s knowledge and understanding, allowing our children to have a good understanding of the importance of quality relationships and positive health and well-being, so they can thrive throughout their lives. To embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life, children need knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-belief.
At Mayfield, we recognise the importance of preparing children for their future, in terms of their next phase of learning and their subsequent growth into becoming conscientious adults. We believe in the importance, and significance, of children being aware and having a secure understanding of PSHRE, which supports them to be healthy, safe and prepared for modern life. Today’s young people are growing up in an increasingly complex world which presents many positive opportunities, but also challenges and risks. They need to know how to be safe and healthy, and how to manage their academic, personal and social lives in a positive way.
PSHRE Subject Leader- Mrs Ellidge
Navigating our complex world can be challenging, and parents and teachers play an essential role in preparing children for the future.
As such, PSHRE aims to ensure that all pupils:
How is PSHRE taught and what does it look like at Mayfield? (Implementation)
Mayfield offers high quality, evidence based and age-appropriate teaching of PSHRE, thus preparing our children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences their life will bring. The curriculum is designed to develop knowledge and skills that are progressive, as well as transferable, throughout their time at Mayfield Primary and also into their further education and beyond.
What will my child leave Mayfield knowing, understanding and appreciating in PSHRE? (Impact)
At Mayfield Primary School, we aim to prepare children for life, helping them really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever changing world. Through our teaching, children will learn more, know more and remember more about PSHRE.
PSHRE Pupil Voice – What do our children think of PSHRE at Mayfield? (Impact)
“I enjoy doing PSHRE as I can really think about my feelings and actions and see how they affect me and others. I also learn ways I can help myself if I’m feeling certain emotions. Like if I’m feeling angry, I can walk away, take deep breaths or count to ten.”
“I love Wally and Dina in Dinosaur School. We help Wally to be a good boy and show him how to make the right choices. Sometimes he forgets and we have to show him again. Dina is a very old dinosaur and she is the Headteacher of Dinosaur School.”
“In PSHRE we have been learning all about being safe online. Did you know you mustn’t share your password or private information?”
“Our PSHRE topic this half term is ‘’Why is it important to spend money wisely?’. We have been thinking about budgets and working within a budget. That’s so important at the moment with prices rising so much. It must be really hard for our parents to manage this.”
“I enjoyed learning about VIP’s at the beginning of this year. We thought about who our VIP’s are and about how we can be a good friend to others. We also practised how to solve an argument without being unkind.”
