Other Curriculum Subjects
PSHE (Personal, Social, Health & Emotional Education)
This subject equips children with the knowledge, skills and understanding that they will need to help them to lead confident, healthy and independent lives. Through our P.S.H.E. curriculum, we aim to develop children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural well-being.
A wide range of teaching methods are used such as discussion, talks, debates, drama, outside speakers and circle time which enable children to listen to others’ views and feelings, comment constructively and articulate their own opinions and ideas.
Topics will include the effects of bullying, isolation, peer pressure, relationships, friendships, enterprise and citizenship. As well as this, children are taught about British and Christian values through the school’s value system and the P.S.H.E curriculum.
The school uses the SEAL materials (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning) to aid this work in school, as well as the P4C materials, to help children question these concepts.
The school also asks recommended outside agencies to support with educating children in subjects such as personal hygiene, drugs and solvent abuse.
Sex and Relationships Education (SRE)
We aim to give children an awareness of our wider curriculum for PSHE. In this way, the pupils receive Sex Education in the context of relationships and are prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life. Parents are informed about Sex Education and the content of the teaching programme and have a right to withdraw their child from all or part of the Sex and Relationships Education provided at school, apart from those parts included in the Statutory National Curriculum.
PE (Physical Education)
PE uses fundamental movement skills as a medium for learning and expression, allowing children to develop both creative and physical skills. These skills will encourage greater physical activity, a healthier lifestyle, a sense of self motivation, fair play, working as a team and observing rules. The school field is used for team games and athletics activities.
Modern Foreign Languages
In Key Stage 2, pupils begin to learn Spanish, using the ‘Hola Esponol’ scheme of work.
