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.

Each Tuesday the nursery children explore maths through cooking, we learn about shapes, size, weights and practise our counting. We do this in small groups so that we can take our time and learn new skills. As the Nursery children have been exploring the song five currant buns this week they worked together to make currant buns. We hope you enjoyed them at home today..if they made it that far? ( Those who didn’t make currant buns this week will have their opportunity next Tuesday. ) #dcpscaterpillar #dcpseyfs #dcpspshe #dcpsmusic #dcpsmaths ... See MoreSee Less

The full time nursery children loved toasting their marshmallows over a real fire today in Nursery. I was so impressed at how well the children had remembered our fire pit rules from last week and they did an amazing job keeping themselves safe. Today we also made our own marshmallow play dough and enjoyed using the diggers to fill and empty their trucks with cereal #dcpsEYFS #dcps30hours #dcpscaterpillar #dcpspshe #dcpslotc #dcpsstem ...

This week the full time Nursery children helped our puppet Olly plan his first camping trip. We planned everything he might need to bring with him on his camping trip and had fun making our own campfire crafts. The children helped set up his tent and went fishing in our water tray. We gathered sticks for our campfire and discussed how we would keep ourselves safe around a campfire as we pretended to toast some marshmallows. We are looking forward to next week when we will actually toast some marshmallows around our campfire for real #dcpsEYFS #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpslotc #dcpscore #dcpspshe ...

Amazing couldn’t wish for a better school nursery for my little Ashton 💜

In Nursery we are very kind and care about others. This week we have thought about the wildlife in Howdon who need our help this winter. We thought about what they need and designed warm homes for them. We worked together to make lots of cereal bird feeders for all the birds around Howdon, watch out for them on the trees and bushes near school.
We have also spent lots of time exploring shapes! The children loved making shape sandwiches and creating shape pictures! #dcpscaterpillar #dcpsmaths #dcpspshe

Year 6 visited Safetyworks yesterday afternoon to learn about how we can keep ourselves safe in different situations inside and outside of the home. We took part in a range of different scenarios where we had to decide what to do and how the emergency services can help us. We learned lots of helpful tips that will help to keep us safe in the future! #dcpslion #dcpspshe #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 5 had a great day making Seasonal wraps. They enjoyed learning about healthy eating and trying new vegetables and salad. Some of them weren’t too sure about the hummus though. #dcpsdolphin #dcpswhale #dcpsdt #dcpscore #dcpspshe ... See MoreSee Less

After an exciting morning visiting Santa himself it was back to work this afternoon in Giraffe class, working hard on our Lifeskills unit Economic wellbeing. We have been discussing why we need jobs, what a salary is and how we can manage our money and try to stop ourselves becoming bankrupt in the future. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpscore #dcpspshe #dcpslifeskills #dcpsnetworking ...
