Personal Social and Health Education

Subject Leader - Miss Carr


Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) holds a precious place within the schools ethos and is a subject that is delivered carefully in each class every week. PSHE begins straight away in the Early Years and is a prime area of learning. It is fundamental which supports the development of learning across all other areas.

PSHE provides the children with lots of opportunities for discussion, asking questions and working with each other. The children are very much encouraged and helped to develop the skills necessary to listen to and value the views of others.  PSHE encourages the children to be independent learners by encouraging them to think and reflect about their own circumstances.

PSHE has a crucial role in supporting the children with everyday issues that the children may come across.  Through careful planning and teaching we educate and support children which will help them make different decisions and choices in life.

At East Bergholt we are keen for the children to work with and get involved with people in the community. We invite different professionals from different backgrounds to come and talk to the children about their role and experiences.

As the children progress through the school more sensitive issues are addressed, in a way that meets the needs of the children in the East Bergholt area.  Policies are in place for the teaching of drug and sex education.

We follow the Suffolk scheme for PSHE as a basis for our curriculum.


Sex and Relationships Education

Discreet units of sex and relationship education are taught to Years 5 and 6 building upon the earlier PSHE programme which deals with friendship, conflicts and family life. Issues and questions are dealt with in a sensitive and appropriate way. The lessons within years 5 and 6 are carefully planned and delivered using a range of approved resources, such as videos and books which are based on relationships and puberty. Some aspects are taught within the science curriculum. Parents of Year 5 children are invited to attend a parent information evening where the resources can be viewed. Parents have the right to withdraw their child from the discrete units in Years 5 and 6 and this should be done in writing to the Headteacher.

As a whole school we did a range of activities associated with anti-bullying. This also linked into the theme of this years anti-bullying week which was 'respect'. Above are a few examples of the different activities that were carried out in each class. At the end of the week we had a sharing assembly and each class got to share what they had learnt.

Reception have been learning about how it is good to be different and how everyone is unique in different ways. They created themselves on a gingerbread man, followed by a circle time discussion.

Year one have been busy learning about 'People who help us' as part of their PSHE topic this term on 'Accidents and Illness'. They drew pictures about the different people they could think of that helps us.

Year 2 have also started off the year by thinking about how they are all unique and wrote sentences about what makes them unique. Their work formed a fantastic display in the KS1 corridor, feel free to have a look!
