PSHCE stands for Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education.
It encompasses: Health and Wellbeing, Relationships, Living in the Wider World. During PSHCE, the children learn about themselves, other people, rights and responsibilities and relationships. PSHCE gives children the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe, teaching skills to prepare them for life.
At Stoneyholme, the UNICEF rights respecting articles are embedded into the PSHCE curriculum. We have achieved both the Bronze and Silver UNICEF awards, we are now working towards gold. These rights are linked to the values in school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
During PSHCE, the children will have the opportunity to enhance their learning through BLP. We use the model of the brain, which is split into 4 different sections- Resilience, Resoursefulness, Reflectiveness and Relationships.
A large aspect of PSHCE is talking about our feelings, labelling them and discussing scenarios when we may experience them.
What to do if your child feels worried at school...
The children in Reception and Key Stage One have worry monsters. The children write or draw their what is worrying them, unzip the worry monsters mouth and feed him their worry.
The Key Stage 2 children have a sparkle box to write their worries down and post them into the box. A member of staff then reads the worries and supports the children who need it.
During the first few sessions of PSHCE, each class will be making a class charter and group agreement.
The class charters outline which rights respecting articles are important to them; along with agreeing to respect them. The group agreements are created as a class; they outline the children's expectations during PSHCE.
Have a look at some of the fantastic PSHCE the children have been doing during the Spring Term.
