At Homefields have adopted the “KAPOW” curriculum for PSHE/RSE based on the principal that children will develop a DEPTH of learning. The curriculum is carefully planned and sequenced, ensuring that all pupils develop the knowledge and skills to succeed in life. Our scheme of work fulfils the statutory requirements for Relationships and Health Education set out by the Department for Education. It also fulfils the National Curriculum requirement to teach PSHE (‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education ) and goes beyond the statutory requirements by referring to the PSHE Association Programme of Study (recommended by the Department for Education.)
At Homefields Primary School PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) underpins all of the teaching and learning across the school curriculum. We support the children to develop the skills they need to become healthy, confident and responsible citizens.
Each half term the children focus on a different theme. These themes are: Family and Relationships, Health and Wellbeing, Safety and the Changing Body, Citizenship, Economic Wellbeing and Identity (Year 6 only). In Autumn 1, the children focus on settling into their new classes and focus on a new beginning in a new year group.
The PSHE taught at Homefields Primary School prepares the pupils for the opportunities, experience and responsibilities of adult life.
