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.

We were very lucky to have Julie in Year 3 for our Wolrd of Work Career Top Trumps session this morning! We loved playing top trumps to see all of the different careers and then making our own card for our dream job! #dcpscore #dcpspshe #dcpslizard ... See MoreSee Less

Year 1 loved their session from The World of Work! We talked about a CV and how it can help us to get a job when we grow up. The children made a CV for their favourite superhero and then a CV for themselves. We had to think about what we were good at and what job we should go for. #dcpspanda #dcpspshe ... See MoreSee Less

Things are growing well in Gardening Club. We had to make sure everything was well watered in this warm weather. We even had a little visitor, a fledging bird. We were really sensible in staying quiet and giving it space, but we are looking forward watching it grow. #dcpsstem #dcpspshe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants had a fabulous day with Rachel from Phunky Foods. We used our knowledge of food groups from our DT unit to develop our own balanced couscous dish. We carefully selected and weighed our ingredients before using our cutting and grating skills to create a delicious dish. #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpspshe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 Giraffes have had a great afternoon working with Marie from Barnardos. We have been trying to map our well-being, thinking about what emotional well-being is, how we can help boost our emotional well-being and started to think about what our local council can do to help boost our emotional well-being. #dcpsgiraffe #dcpspshe #dcpscore ...

We hope you have all had a lovely weekend celebrating the Queen’s jubilee. Last week the full time nursery children worked very hard to prepare for their own jubilee party. We made and decorated our own crown biscuits, baked scones, made our own flags and created some beautiful crowns fit for the queen herself. We even built and decorated our own castle! The children loved learning about the Queen and dancing to some of the best British tunes from the Beatles to the spice girls during our jubilee celebrations #dcpscaterpillar #dcps30hours #dcpseyfs #dcpspshe #dcpsbritishvalues #dcpscore ...

Year 1 Panda Class loved celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at school on Friday. We made crowns, bunting and flags and placed significant moments throughout Queen Elizabeth ll’s life on a chronological timeline. We absolutely loved our garden party with Her Royal Majesty, as we celebrated with cupcakes and juice! A fantastic day with a fantastic class! #dcpspanda #dcpshistory #dcpspshe #dcpscore ...

Elephants have had a lovely day celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee. We began by designing and making crowns ready for our Jubilee party. After some lovely cakes, we spent the day researching facts about the Queen. Ask us what we found out! #dcpselephant #dcpshistory #dcpspshe #queensjubilee ... See MoreSee Less
