PSHE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education. At Long Row, PSHE is our umbrella term for our social, emotional, moral, cultural and relationships education.
In December 2022 we achieved the above BERT award for actively promoting the development wellbeing and belonging across the school community, our sequential, progressive curriculum, meeting children's needs, confident staff, safeguarding practices and the engagement with our children and parents. The award recognises and celebrates the achievements of the wellbeing agenda in our school and we are now working towards the silver and gold standards, which focus on specific areas we are developing.
PSHE is vital in a child's education. At Long Row, we aim to provide high quality PSHE through explicit lessons and 'in the moment' teaching and discussions as needs arise. The PSHE curriculum is based around the Derbyshire County Council’s ‘PSHE Matters’ framework and is implemented on a two-year cycle: A and B. We also include 'Special Days' to enhance the children's learning, including, but not limited to: Children in Need, Red Nose Day, Anti-Bullying Day, Pride in Belper and Internet Safety.
Every half term, EYFS through to year 6 focuses on learning around a core unit focus. Lessons are taught in a safe classroom environment, where rules and boundaries are established, through a variety of age-appropriate ways, including videos, photographs, scenarios and stories. Objectives and learning from other units will also be addressed if needs arise with classes, groups or individual children to ensure positive relationships, safety and well-being.
Children may also have an identified behaviour or difficulty at home, which is not seen in school. If this arises, we encourage parents/carers to ensure we are aware and can provide support through our lending library of books or if needed our in-school pastoral referral.
Our long-term plan and progression documents can be viewed below, which provide an overview of objectives and vocabulary covered in each unit.
This academic year 2022/2023 is cycle A.
