Areas of Work

PSHE

All of our work promotes the Wellbeing of children and young people in schools. The inclusion of PSHE and Citizenship in the school curriculum supports this. There is currently no fixed definition of the areas of work which constitute PSHE and Citizenship. Schools are required to devise a programme of PSHE which meets the needs of their pupils, although the subject is not currently statutory. Therefore the following outline reflects the structure of our supportive materials for primary and secondary schools. Our materials are structured into 4 strands which develop from EYFS to KS4.

Myself and My Relationships

Developing an awareness of self, emotions and mental health are essential elements in our programmes. Developing skills of self-understanding are crucial to everyone’s ability to form, nurture and maintain positive and life-enhancing relationships.  Mental health is currently a core priority for all those working with children and young people both locally and nationally.

Areas of this strand include:

Healthy and Safer Lifestyles

It is a school’s duty to ensure that they prepare pupils for adult life. Part of the challenge of this is enabling pupils to make positive decisions about an ever changing collection of ‘risks’. Pupils must be offered opportunities to explore their own attitudes and develop skills, rather than focusing solely on gaining knowledge.

Areas of this strand include:

Citizenship

With the recent requirement for schools to promote British values and prevent radicalisation, Citizenship has become a focal point. As well as curriculum delivery, schools may choose to enact the values of democracy, tolerance, respect through the organisation and management of their school. Areas of this strand include:

Economic Wellbeing

Teaching pupils about personal finance and to respect and manage money helps them to become financially capable and better able to meet the increasingly complex financial challenges that await them in the wider world. The ability to make financial decisions is a major aspect of identifying and making the best use of opportunities.
