St Gregory's Catholic Primary School

'For every future, for every child'

PHSE

Statement of Intent

At St Gregory's we believe that PSHE education equips children to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. A critical component of PSHE education is providing opportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.   At St Gregory's we believe in creating a safe space for children to talk and to be heard. We are a Rights Respecting School and we know and understand that children have the right to give an opinion, and for adults to listen and take it seriously (Article 12).
 
PSHE education contributes to personal development by helping children to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables them to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.  

 

We hope that our PHSE curriculum will offer children:

  • accurate, balanced and relevant knowledge 
  • opportunities to turn that knowledge into personal understanding  
  • opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes, beliefs, rights and responsibilities 
  • the skills, language and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives
  • opportunities to develop positive personal attributes such as resilience, self-confidence, self-esteem, and empathy 

Our Anti-Bullying Week video

As part of our anti-bullying week we considered how we can all make a change. We wore odd socks to show that we are all unique and special and talked about what bullying might look like and how we can stop it by making a change.

NHS 'Fantastic Fred' visits St Gregory's

What a great start to the term we had when we had a visit from the NHS 'Fantastic Fred' workshop. The Professor taught the children all the important things to remember for ensuring good mental health and for making sensible choices around food, exercise, rest and playing on devices. The children took part in quizzes, they got the opportunity to practice their 'floss' and laughed and enjoyed the entire interactive show.
