PSHE / RSHE at St Lewis'...

At St Lewis' we believe that through our PSHE and RSHE  curriculum we are providing our children with the necessary tools to become active, healthy, independent and responsible decision making members of a modern society. We want all of our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves, belief in others, tolerance and emotional resilience to support their journey beyond life at St Lewis'.

What we want for our pupils;

To develop a confidence in sharing their own thoughts and opinions with others
To develop skills and attributes to keep themselves healthy and safe
To develop an attitude of a responsible global citizen
To show tolerance of others
To build positive, respectful relationships – themselves and others

PSHE is at the heart of all we do, as research shows the positive impact of an effective PSHE curriculum on pupil attainment and positive outcomes for learners. Our PSHE curriculum is entwined into our whole school ethos and it is a curriculum that will always be developing and will never be static to ensure that we are providing the most relevant curriculum for our children that reflects the society they live within.

As a school, we will use the statutory content within the National Curriculum and from other statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (RSHE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle. We use the PSHE Association to develop a thematic approach to teaching and we encourage our pupils to play an active and positive role in contributing to the life of the school and its wider community. Through doing this, we help develop children’s independence, responsibility and help create a strong sense of self-worth and belonging. 

Community lies at the heart of our PSHE curriculum and we ensure that our children have the opportunity to develop taught skills in real life contexts both within and beyond our school community. Children have the opportunity to take part in our buddy systems, Prefect teams, charity work—local food banks as well as national charities and creating links with nursing local homes.

In order to further enhance and develop our children's knowledge and awareness of equality and diversity we use the Everyone Different, Everyone Welcome - No Outsiders curriculum. This uses pictures books to expose the children sensitively to themes and topics and allow them an opportunity to ask questions and share their ideas in a safe environment.
