Personal, social, health and economic education is a crucial part of the curriculum at Headfield Junior School. It helps to give the children the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. All children are encouraged to play an active part in school life through School Council, Playground Leaders, Merit Shop Helpers, Reading Buddies, Fine Dining and various fundraising events throughout the year.
The school plans PSHE education using the 3 core themes as advised by the PSHE Association.
- Health and Wellbeing
- Living in the Wider World
The 3 themes are taught with the support of the Go Givers website which is a cross- curricular PSHE and citizenship programme for primary schools.
Assessment in PSHE is done informally through teacher observations during lessons. SEN and Gifted and Talented children are given differentiated work where opportunities are provided to ensure their needs are met at all times.
PSHE is about preparing children for the challenges ahead of them and at Headfield Junior School we aim to achieve this goal for every child.
