PSHE Curriculum Intent

PSHE Curriculum Intent

PSHE enables our children to become healthy, independent and ​responsible members of a diverse and multicultural society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially.  To develop an understanding of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. To provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. To develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community.

“There is a myriad of extra learning opportunities for pupils to develop their interests and talents.  This enriches the school’s strong focus on pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.” Ofsted 2018

Introduction to PSHE

Introduction to PSHE

At Kentmere we believe that our PSHE and Citizenship curriculum plays a vital role in the development of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural elements of the whole pupil by providing opportunities for them to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the values and attitudes they encounter both now and in the future. Assemblies and collective worship provide a regular opportunity to enhance pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, promoting the school’s values and celebrating achievement. School assemblies are linked to the school’s core values and weekly themes.  At Kentmere Academy, we believe that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is central to the values and ethos of the school. In all PSHE lessons, having an understanding of the rights of all children around the world helps to build respect in all relationships, both within the school and in the wider community.  As of September 2020, PSHE will become a statutory area of the National Curriculum and we believe that our curriculum meets the requirement and in all cases exceeds the recommendations.
