PSHE at Merstham Primary School

At Merstham Primary School our vision statement ‘A community growing, learning and achieving together’ clearly sets out what we wish to achieve as a school community.

Embedded in our vision are our values; Community, Aiming High, Learning to Learn and Wellbeing.

At Merstham Primary School, our intent in our Personal, Social, Health, Economic (PSHE) education programme is to promote children's personal, social and economic development, as well as their health and wellbeing. It helps to give children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active, responsible citizens.

The PSHE education curriculum covers a range of key issues facing children and young people today, including those relating to relationships (where the focus is on teaching the fundamental building blocks and characteristics of positive relationships, with particular reference to friendships, family relationships, and relationships with other children and with adults); mental and physical health; staying safe and aware online; financial literacy and careers.

PSHE deals with the diverse beliefs, values and attitudes that individuals and societies hold. They help pupils to develop themselves, their understanding of the world, and their ability to communicate their feelings. PSHE helps children to acquire British values and attitudes, which are necessary if they are to make sense of their experiences within school and life itself, value themselves, respect others, appreciate differences and diversity and feel confident and informed as a British citizen.

By the end of Key Stage 2 most pupils should be able to:

  •  identify positive ways to face new challenges (for example the transition to secondary school).
  • discuss some of the bodily and emotional changes at puberty, and can demonstrate some ways of dealing with these in a positive way.
  • make judgements and decisions and can list some ways of resisting negative peer pressure around issues affecting their health and wellbeing.
  • list the commonly available substances and drugs that are legal and illegal, and can describe some of the effects and risks of these.
  • describe some of the different beliefs and values in society, and can demonstrate respect and tolerance towards people different from themselves.

This is implemented through:

  • weekly PSHE lessons
  • THRIVE - class based sessions and small group/individual sessions as appropriate
  • assemblies based on the school’s values and Fundamental British Values
  • Person of the Week
  • Gold Work / celebration assembly
  • Kindness ambassadors
  • School Council
  • focus days and weeks – Anti-bullying, children’s mental health, Healthy Eating, Feeling good week, Jeans4genes, First Aid
