Our PSHE curriculum at St Stephen’s Junior School aims to provide children with the opportunity to develop an understanding of the ever-changing world in which we live in and acquire the skills needed to take an active role in their community and manage their lives effectively. As they progress through the school pupils will gain knowledge of legalities; how to maintain a healthy body and mind; how to feel safe and reflect on their own lives as they mature. These learning experiences will provide our children with the qualities, skills and attributes they need in order to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society; preparing them for life and work.
How the PSHE Curriculum has been constructed
Key topics of the PSHE curriculum were decided based on the knowledge and skills we wanted our children to have acquired and developed before leaving at the end of Year 6. Within each topic, the learning journey is based on these specific skills and knowledge and learning experiences provide the children to develop these as they progress through the school.
