PSHE Curriculum Intent


At Far Forest Lea Memorial CE Primary School, the aim of PSHE is to deliver a curriculum that is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more and understand more. We aim for all children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We provide opportunities for children to explore moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up which in turn supports the development of essential skills and provides the opportunity for children to make safe and informed choices. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Strong links are made with our curriculum drivers, our 6 Christian values as well as fundamental British values.


More detail about how we will achieve our intent is outlined in our Curriculum Statement for PSHE below:

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2:

PSHE is taught following the 1Decision Programme of Study. Children are taught in blocks which enable children to explore a range of social, cultural and moral issues. Dedee and Darlee guide children through each lesson, encouraging good decision making both inside and outside of school.

In Early Years:

Continuous Provision is carefully planned to ensure development in Physical, Social and Emotional Development (PSED). Opportunities are carefully planned to encourage children will explore the ideas of relationships, feelings and appropriate behaviours, self-confidence and self-awareness, rules and routines and empathy.

Our PSHE curriculum is designed to encourage a progression of children's understanding and skills. By the end of their time at Far Forest, we aim for all children to be well-rounded citizens who can make safe and informed choices in life as well as play an active role in society.
