Through PSHEE education learners develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work.
PSHEE matters greatly and positively impacts on both academic attainment and learners' wellbeing, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our PSHEE curriculum is focused around our core values of Trust, Respect, Equity and Excellence. In each health-term there is an overarching topic, for example ‘Personal identity and values’ which is broken down into sessions which help to build learners’ knowledge and understanding of themselves, others and the world around them. Alongside the PSHE curriculum we also support the sessions with whole school assemblies which take place once a week and focus on the core value for that half term.
Encompassing our whole PSHEE curriculum are our Character awards. Learners are able to work towards gaining Bronze, Silver or Gold awards in relation to our 4 core values. Learners will be able to complete a wide range of challenges evidencing the work they have undertaken and how this has contributed to developing their character. These challenges can be completed through classwork, representing the school, supporting whole school events or through supporting others, the school and the wider community.
Each term also has a dedicated session helping to improve whole school Literacy, Numeracy and Oracy skills.
Our PSHEE Curriculum aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
PSHEE education helps learners to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage life’s challenges and make the most of life’s opportunities.
An effective PSHEE programme can also tackle barriers to learning, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged learners.
PSHEE at Honywood gives learners the ability to embrace the challenges of creating a happy and successful adult life. Learners will build upon their knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their wellbeing, health and relationships and to build their self-efficacy. Learners can also put this knowledge into practice as they develop the capacity to make sound decisions when facing risks, challenges and complex contexts. Everyone faces difficult situations in their lives. Through PSHEE we can support our learners to develop resilience, to know how and when to ask for help, and to know where to access support.
