PSHE

Our Rolling Program for PSHE is tailored to mixed-age classes and our knowledge and skills progression document shows how we teach the knowledge and skills for this subject. 

Intent

Becoming healthy, independent and responsible members of society.

We believe that through the teaching of PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Education) and Citizenship, our pupils become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. They learn to understand about their rights and responsibilities as an individual and show empathy and understanding to others. It develops their sense of self-worth by encouraging them to play a positive role in school life and the wider community.

Implementation

PSHE is delivered over a three-year scheme of learning which follows the Cornwall Council and Brook programme of study.

This is organised into three core themes:

  1. Health and wellbeing
  2. Relationships
  3. Living in the wider world (covering economic wellbeing and careers)

These themes include various topics related to physical and mental health, alcohol and drug education, relationships (and sex) education, economic wellbeing and careers.

 

Assessment

Assessment is viewed as building a picture over time of a child's learning progress across the curriculum and is viewed as an integral part of teaching and learning.  

Assessment for learning (AFL) and Visible Learning underpin all learning. A variety of feedback is used to inform the pupils about their learning so that they become more involved in their own learning and from this gain confidence in what they are expected to learn and how to progress it further. 

Core success criteria and learning intentions are used to track pupils understanding of their learning.

Pupil Retrieval Practices include: 

KWL grids, quizzes, concept/ mind maps, questioning, success criteria, learning intentions and pupil targets. 

 

Whole School Tracking and Progress 

We use iTRACK which is the online pupil tracking software that uses powerful data analysis to track pupil progress and attainment in real time.
