An overview of P.S.H.E. at Sandford Hill
At Sandford Hill the personal development of pupils is seen as essential to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes pupils need to manage many of the critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face as they grow up and in adulthood. By teaching our pupils to stay safe and healthy, and by building self-esteem, resilience, an effective P.S.H.E.curriculum can tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of all our pupils, including the most vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils. When planning the P.S.H.E. curriculum we have considered the needs of our pupils, the aims and ethos of our school and, the local community and local environment in which Sandford Hill is situated.
For effective practice in P.S.H.E. education, we have created a spiral curriculum to develop knowledge, skills and attributes, where prior learning is revisited, reinforced and extended year on year. The P.S.H.E. curriculum is a question based model which is broken down into 3 areas: Relationships, Health and Wellbeing and Living in the Wider World. At the start of every half term, in the first week, three P.S.H.E. lessons take place to introduce the termly theme. During the rest of the term, one P.S.H.E. lesson is delivered each week.
