PSHCE at Boarshaw Primary School


At Boarshaw we aim for all pupils to develop their confidence and feel positive about their own individual abilities. Pupils will be provided with vast opportunities to help raise self esteem. We will ensure to provide that all pupils have the prospect to play a positive role within school and the wider community. Boarshaw aims to educate children into model citizens, who are aware of their rights and responsibilities and are able to form good relationships with others. Pupils should value all individuals and show respect towards differing cultural beliefs. We will encourage all children to engage in a healthy and active lifestyle. The importance of a healthy diet and exercise will be emphasised. Fundamental to everything we do at Boarshaw Primary is an overarching aim to ensure we have a caring and inclusive community where safety is key, everyone is equal and everyone matters. Whilst we aim to teach PSHE discretely through our broad curriculum, assemblies and other educational activities, we also ensure that we have dedicated PSHE lessons which progress from EYFS to year 6.

At Boarshaw Primary School, we aim to promote pupil’s personal, social, spiritual and health education, as well as their emotional development and well-being. We build on statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum and in statutory guidance and follow the ‘SCARF’ scheme of work to provide consistency throughout our school, support staff with subject knowledge and reduce teacher workload. We aim to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community.  This enables them to learn life skills to assist their personal, spiritual and physical growth. We explore the changes that everyone undergoes to deal with today’s society and give pupils an understanding of the rights and responsibilities that are part of being an outstanding citizen.  


Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences across and beyond the curriculum, contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. In doing so they learn to recognise their own worth, work well with others and become increasingly responsible for their own learning. They reflect on their experiences and understand how they are developing personally and socially, tackling many of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. They learn to understand and respect our common humanity; diversity and differences so that they can go on to form the effective, fulfilling relationships that are an essential part of life and learning. In addition, our PSHE curriculum incorporates an age appropriate understanding of RSE, as set in the statutory guidance, enabling all children to be safe and to understand and develop healthy relationships both now and in their future lives.
