Personal Social Health Economic Education
Our PSHE curriculum is designed to ensure those children leaving the New Wave Federation do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions which enable them to play an active, positive and successful role in society. We aim to instil a sense of ambition and confidence within our children. We recognise the importance of preparing our pupils for the challenges they will face and with managing their own mental well-being.
Our PSHE curriculum develops learning and prepares our children for global citizenship. It promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life.
Our relationships education and health education curriculum equips our children with the confidence to remain safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships, both now and in their future lives.
Through the support of the Jigsaw PSHE scheme of work, we develop lessons which meet the needs of the pupils who attend New Wave Federation. Our PSHE curriculum develops the qualities and attributes that children need to thrive as individuals.
Our PSHE programme is an integral part of our whole school PSHE education provision and is designed to meet the unique needs of pupils, not only through the One Life spiral Scheme of Work as well as the PSHE Association thematic builder, but through our wider PSHE curriculum offer. Our provision of PSHE promotes opportunities to link British Values and Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (SMSC) responsibilities. Cross curricular links are established, for example internet safety (computing), sustainability (science), leading healthy active lives (PE/PSHE/science). A flexible approach to timetabling allows for PSHE objectives to be met outside of the weekly lesson time. Our personal development pathway for each year group maps out a range of wider experiences for children to expand their health and economic education including first aid and financial wellbeing workshops
As a result of our well planned and flexible approach to PSHE children have a clear understanding of themselves, their community and the wider world.
Our adaptive approach to PSHE ensures the robust curriculum can respond to local/national/global events in an age appropriate way. The distribution of lessons complements key campaigns throughout the year, such as: Anti-Bullying Week, International Women’s Day and Mental Health Week.
