PSHE and Values
 'Follow the three Rs:
  -Respect for self.
  -Respect for others.
  -Responsibility for all your actions.'

Intent
 
At Bramingham Primary school, the teaching of PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent, safe and responsible members of society. It helps them to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse community, showing respect for all and developing a sense of their own self-worth. Our PSHE curriculum, which is underpinned by our school values, ensures that all children leave us with the tools and confidence to tackle the various moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

Our long-term planning has been informed by the PSHE Association's guidelines which has been adapted to suit our curriculum; each topic within our planning has a question focus.

Please note that the summer term is subject to change as we will introduce the Christopher Winter Project which is the PSHE Association's approved programme for Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) in Luton.

 

Values-based Education (VbE)

Alongside our PSHE curriculum are our values, which we implement and refer to on a daily basis. We feel that by doing this, it promotes a way of being that values the self, others and the environment. This is turn will help with developing self-awareness, mutual respect, communication skills and a solid moral compass. 

Throughout the year, we will focus on one value per month (based on a  two year cycle).
