PSHE

PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic) education permeates through all areas of school life to support our children in becoming healthy, confident, self-motivated and independent members of our diverse multicultural society.

Our curriculum is based on the PSHE Association framework and the Crofty Multi-Academy Trust Progression of Skills documents. It has been fully adapted using guidance from Cornwall Healthy Schools to ensure that it fully meets the needs of our children. This is reviewed regularly to make sure that it is current and up-to-date. 

PSHE is delivered across the school through integrated topic work or discrete mini-topic units.  In addition, PSHE is delivered through educational visits (including residential camps for Years 2 - 6), assemblies, visitor workshops and activities such as Circle Time, Forest School and Sports Days. Pupils learn about developing and maintaining positive relationships, healthy lifestyles, personal finance, staying safe (including E-Safety), and to reflect on current and future aspirations. They develop their knowledge and understanding of how society is governed and their rights and responsibilities within it. Pupils are encouraged to contribute positively to all areas of school life and the wider community, and experience the process of democracy through the School Council and Eco-Council. Each year group from Year 1 to Year 6 undertakes the Christopher Winter Project for Drugs and Alcohol Education, and Relationships and Sex Education as recommended by Cornwall Healthy Schools. We have a whole school code of conduct, ‘Star Rules for Life’ which underpins our everyday working practices, therefore making PSHE a core part of the culture and ethos within school.
