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 the My Happy Mind scheme. This supports us to build a culture of mental health and wellbeing for all. The long term planning for PSHE also includes RSE incorporating Citizenship, Economic Awareness, Family and relationships, Safety and the changing body, Identity, Health and wellbeing and Transition.
