Personal, Social and Health Education Policy

Personal, social and health education is a fantastic area of the curriculum that underpins most of what we do at King’s Hedges School. It includes everything in school to promote our pupils’ good health and well being. PSHE provides opportunities for children to develop knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour which will enable them to become motivated, independent and successful learners and effective citizens both within and beyond school. It teaches them how to stay safe, look after themselves and their relationships;  make good food choices, see the importance of leisure activities and exercise, recognize some money matters, think about careers plus it also gives strategies to develop emotional well being!  We see PSHE as a very important part of every child’s education.

Sex and Relationships Education is embedded within the PSHE and the Science curriculum. It begins with very young children recognising their own value and uniqueness and how wonderfully clever their bodies are.

Citizenship is also embedded in PSHE and we encourage children to understand that every person matters and that respect for people, communities and our environment are important and have many positive outcomes.

Each year we ask our leaving Year 6 pupils to undertake a simple survey, anonymously, to gather some information to help us in further preparing pupils as they transition to secondary school - please click here to see the latest results.

 

 Philosophy

 Philosophy for children is an exciting new area that we are developing. It is designed to improve thinking skills in children of all ages, which in turn will help them to grow in their understanding of themselves, others and their world. Sessions are fun and usually begin with a warm up game and then a stimulus is introduced which leads to a question being chosen by the children and discussed. Final thoughts let the children reflect on what has been shared and think about how their own view point might have been expanded or even changed.

Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Policy

We are always trying to provide opportunities to promote the SMSC development of pupils. This will happen in everyday lessons and as we work and play as part of a community. We love to hear about achievements and reflections pupils have made; celebrations or traditions they have been involved with. Explicit opportunities, such as assemblies, outside visits, special occasions, guests, as well as links with other schools, countries and continents are welcomed. Please come and share your ideas and your cultural heritage with us!
