Lowton West Primary School


Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education at Lowton West

 Curriculum Statement

'Aiming High Together'

At Lowton West Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education at Lowton West is concerned with qualities and attitudes, knowledge and understanding and abilities and skills in relation to oneself and others, social responsibility and morality. At our school, we aim to deliver Personal and Social Education that permeates all areas of the curriculum and promotes informed decision-making about the following issues: Looking after yourself, Relationships, Safety and Community and the Environment. We incorporate Circle Time and SEAL lessons into the curriculum in order to enhance and broaden the structure of PSHCE. By implementing Circle Time strategies, it helps to raise self-esteem, which is central to promoting appropriate behaviour and builds upon our Positive Behaviour Management and Discipline Policy. British Values are also fully embedded into the PSHCE curriculum and the school Religious Festivals and Cultural Events Calendar, which supports the planning of assemblies throughout the year. This ensures that school promotes the basic British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.


Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education at Key Stage 1

During Key Stage 1, pupils learn about themselves as developing individuals and as members of their communities, building on their own experiences and on the early learning goals for personal, social and emotional development. They learn the basic rules and skills for keeping themselves healthy and safe and for behaving well. They have opportunities to show they can take some responsibility for themselves and their environment. They begin to learn about their own and other people's feelings and become aware of the views, needs and rights of other children and older people. As members of a class and school community, they learn social skills such as how to share, take turns, play, help others, demonstrate mutual respect and tolerance, resolve simple arguments and resist bullying. They begin to take an active part in the life of their school and its neighbourhood.


Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education at Key Stage 2

During Key Stage 2, pupils learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of their communities. They become more mature, independent and self-confident. They learn about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it, exploring the democratic process, the rule of law and the importance of individual liberty. They develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions. They learn how to take part more fully in school and community activities. As they begin to develop into young adults, they face the changes of puberty and transfer to secondary school with support and encouragement from their school. Through the continuation of work in school linked to healthy living, decision making, the importance of mutual respect and tolerance, they learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment; to take more responsibility, individually and as a group, for their own learning; and to resist bullying.

Year 6 PSHE/Science Workshop

Last week, Year 6 took part in a PSHE/Science workshop led by the School Nurse. The workshop activities focused on recognising the impact of smoking, alcohol, drugs and lifestyle on the way their bodies function and is part of the Year 6 Science topic Healthy Bodies’. The children were very engaged in the activities and enjoyed the session.


NCPCC Workshops and assemblies.

On Monday morning, our school was visited by the NSPCC. They came in to deliver the message of 'Speak out, Stay safe'. Both KS1 and KS2 took part in assemblies to help them remember to talk to a trusted adult when they have any worries. Year 5 and Year 6 completed class workshops in the afternoon to further reinforce this message. The message that was delivered by the NSPCC was extremely important and the children throughout school were outstanding when interacting with the assemblies and workshops. Letters were sent home to support parents with this message.
