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.

Lions have had another excellent afternoon with our guests from Nuffield Health. We have been thinking about sleep and how important it is for our health. We have also been thinking about how screen time can disrupt our sleep and the impact this has. #dcpslion #dcpspshe #dcpsict Mrs Guy ... See MoreSee Less

Our visitors from Nuffield Heath have been in again today talking about the level of sugar found in our food. We have been looking at the traffic light system on foods; we were shocked by how much sugar there is in everyday foods we eat! #dcpslion #dcpspshe #DCPStiger ... See MoreSee Less

We were lucky enough to take part in an anti bullying assembly by Bigfoot Arts Education today. The assembly/performance explored the super powers we could use to cope if we see or hear something that makes us worried, scared or cross. Our super powers were kindness, talking and calm thinking. We also joined in singing and moving to songs. Together we helped characters from the story to work through their worries using our super powers! #dcpspshe #dcpsantibullying #dcpseyfs #dcpsks1 ...

We are thinking about anti bullying in school today. We had a wonderful ‘Good To Be Me’ assembly this morning, where we thought about what makes us special and superpowers we could use to help us in school. Dragons then had a fun workshop where we talked about our feelings and thought about how we can help each other if we saw bullying behaviour. We know now that we can use our ‘brave, calm, kind and talking’ superpowers and that it is good to be who we are. Ask us all about this when we get home. #dcpsdragon #dcpspshe #dcpsbritishvalues #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

How amazing! X

In school today, we are thinking about anti bullying and how we can help support each other through avoiding all types of bulling including anti-bullying. First, we listened to Jamie’s story of how she was cyber-bullied and gave her advice on how she can deal with the situation she finds herself in. The children are extremely knowledgeable and gave some great advice. #dcpspshe #dcpsonlinesafety #dcpsbritishvalues Mrs Guy ... See MoreSee Less
