PSHE at Mission Grove

PSHE education gives pupils the knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. At Mission Grove we plan to enable children to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings.

The children are given opportunities to evaluate ideas and comments made throughout lessons and reflect upon their own learning outcomes.  

At Mission Grove, we recognise the importance of inclusion and the PSHE curriculum ensures equal access to all pupils regardless of their ability, aptitude, race, religion or gender.

Within our PSHE lessons we will be covering relationship education, alongside mental wellbeing. We are aware that children are growing up in an increasingly complex world and living their lives around the internet. It is a priority for the teachers at Mission Grove for these subjects to put into place the key building blocks in building a healthy, respectful relationships, focusing on family and friendship, both on and offline. At Mission Grove we are clear that parents and carers are the prime educators for their child on these matters and we, as teachers strive to compliment and reinforce this role. It is the child's happiness and wellbeing that is at the core to achieving, and at Mission Grove we aim to support children in becoming well rounded individuals with the confidence to adapt to this ever changing world.

Autumn Term

Year 6 are exploring how to keep healthy as they grow. Their topic includes: managing others and their own moods, becoming more responsible for their own safety as they get older, understanding what risks, danger or hazards are, what or who influences someone’s choices related to their health and how a balanced diet contributes to a person’s health and wellbeing.

Year 5 are looking at being part of a community and what that means. This topic includes: who and what makes a community the way it is? Who lives in the UK and the rich diversity and benefits for such diversity, what stereotype means and ways in which we can challenge stereotypes. They will also be exploring healthy relationships. Children will learn about the different kinds of loving relationships, how people in special relationships treat each other, what it means to get married or have a civil partnership, what tells us a relationship is not good and where to go for help and advice, what we do if someone makes us feel unsafe (even if it is someone we think we trust) and how to keep ourselves safe (on and off-line).
