PSHE @ Denbigh CPS 

Subejct Lead: Mrs Newby

At Denbigh the aim of PSHE education is to equip all pupils with the knowledge, understanding, skills and strategies required to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. We encourage pupils to be enterprising and support them in making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. A critical component of PSHE education is providing opportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range of values and attitudes they encounter now and in the future. PSHE education contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, make informed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables pupils to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand and accommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for future employability and better enjoy and manage their lives.


Our well-balanced curriculum promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.PSHE is taught alongside other subjects, including PE, STEM, RE, Topic work, Literacy and Mathematics, as well as an isolated subject. It is taught through lessons, assemblies, outside visitors as well as integrated into daily routines and expectations of the school


In the Early Years Foundation Stage PSHE is considered a prime area of learning and is known as Personal, Social and Emotional Development. This is taught to the children through both child initiated activities and adult-led teaching sessions, such as through class discussions, carpet time, small group work, circle time and games. The children are assessed in this area of learning against development matters statements.


In Key Stage 1 and 2 PSHE is taught through drug education, financial education, relationship and sex education (RSE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle. The school teaches PSHE alongside other statutory subjects forming integrated teaching. The school also facilitates PSHE themed assemblies as well as regularly fundraising on behalf of charity events and social and economic issues. PSHE is also enhanced through behaviour and rules, nurture groups, school council and the wider school ethos.School council will also play a big part in integrating PSHE into school life.

In Year 1 we have been learning about why we give gifts at Christmas linking it to our Christianity unit, as we talked about how the 3 wisemen brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to baby Jesus and the significance of these. We discussed our favourite gifts and found that the gifts were more special due to who had given us the gift and how it made us feel. We thought we would share the joy by making somebody special a handmade Christmas gift.The children talked about who they made their gift for and why they wanted to give them it. #dcpspanda #dcpspolarbear #dcpsre #dcpspshe ...

As part of anti bullying week Nursery celebrated ‘Friendship Friday’ by making friendship bracelets for our friends. We spoke to Alexander the puppet about what being a good friend means. Then we practised the Makaton sign for friend and placed it on our life skills board to remind us all week. #dcpscaterpillar #dcpspshe ... See MoreSee Less

Over the last 2 weeks, Year 6 Tigers have had a fantastic time with NUFC and their Commando Joe lessons. With their focus being Amelia Earhart and her advances in relation to flight and air travel, they have been planning and building their own plane and thinking about how they can work together to create the best structure.
