Personal, social, health and education (PSHE) is a carefully planned programme of learning opportunities and experiences that supports all our work at Westminster to promote positive behaviour, mental health, wellbeing, resilience and achievement.
PSHE at Westminster provides our children with knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live healthy, safe, productive, capable and responsible lives. It also gives our children the skills to reflect on and analyse their own values and equips them to face difficult and sometimes conflicting attitudes they may face in the future.
At Westminster -
Provision is inclusive of all pupils and consistent with the equalities duties
Progression is made from Early Years, through Key stage 1 and Key stage 2 up to and including Year 6.
All year groups use the Jigsaw scheme for PHSE.
Assemblies are held in each Phase to introduce the topics each half term.
It also includes learning about British values and Citizenship.
Working with outside agencies such as Blackpool Football Club Community Trust Fit2Go programme and Coram's Life Education Life Bus brings a different platform into our PSHE curriculum.
The curriculum has also been updated to follow the new guidelines from the Department for Education regarding the teaching of Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) appropriately across school.
