At Higher Failsworth Primary School the aim of PSHE is to provide pupils with the knowledge, understanding, attitudes, values and skills they need in order to reach their potential as individuals and within the community.
We value mental health and community as core drivers within our PSHE curriculum. Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities and experiences contributing fully to the life of their school and communities. Through the school council each year group has the opportunity to have their say in decision making through their school representative. We encourage the children to fundraise for a variety of different charities local, national and international based chosen by the school council. The children learn what voting is and exercise their right to vote for instance by choosing their school council representative. Through the mental health work the children learn to express their feelings
In our school we choose to deliver Personal, Social, Health Education using Apple, Zippy and Passport approach to mental health along with the Rights Respecting Schools award from UNICEF. The long term planning for PSHE covers emotional health and well-being, financial capability, global citizenship, British values, diversity, sex and relationship education, drug, tobacco and alcohol education and bullying.
