Our approach to teaching Personal, Social, Health and Education (PSHE) at Stanley Park Infants’ School is to help develop every child to become a well-rounded global citizen who understands how different people around the world live their lives.
How we teach PSHE
We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to develop in an environment that promotes mutual respect. During PSHE lessons we promote children’s self-esteem and emotional well-being through open discussions and debates, P4C (Philosophy for Children), role plays, circle time, group work, charity work, community and environmental projects, trips and inviting guest speakers into school. We follow the National Curriculum objectives as well as bespoke objectives that reflect the needs and interests of our pupils. These are often related to current issues in the local area that may be affecting our children and their families. Our children gain further insight through assemblies and curriculum days. Children in the Early Years are taught Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED) following the objectives set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.
