St Alban’s Primary School is committed to providing high quality educational experiences for all pupils. At the heart of everything that we do lies our vision for education.
“We are Aspirational, We are Resilient, We seek Wisdom, and We are Courageous.”
At St Alban’s, our personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) curriculum brings together healthy relationships, social responsibility and personal well-being, while promoting fundamental British values. Through a sequential approach we encourage our children to be courageous learners enabling them with the opportunity to develop themselves in the world in which we live.
Although PSHE is taught through discreet lessons, it is also integrated into all activities, assemblies, educational visits and extra-curricular clubs. There are frequent opportunities provided in school which encompass PSHE education, including (but not limited to) sports tournaments, celebration assemblies, Year 6 attending Crucial Crew, our sport leaders, house ambassadors and our reading tutors.
It is intended that we will offer an aspirational, cohesive whole-school approach which inspires our children to achieve their full potential, whilst empowering them to be healthy, independent and responsible members of society.
When designing our PSHE curriculum we consulted with our children, parents, teachers and school community. Identifying exactly what our children need to flourish in an every changing world. To support curriculum implementation we use resources from the PSHE Association and My Happy Mind. Our curriculum covers key topics, physical health, mental health, growing and changing, personal safety, relationships and sex education, bullying and discrimination, media and digital literacy, money and work and community and responsibility.
Our PSHE lead regularly addresses the needs of our children and provides teachers with the resources that they need to help all children flourish.
