At Ramsey Junior School, PSHE education is a planned programme of learning though which pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. As part of a whole school approach, it develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. At our school we use the Cambridgeshire Scheme of Work to ensure that the three core themes are covered:

Core Theme 1: Health and wellbeing
Pupils should be taught:
1. what is meant by a healthy lifestyle
2. how to maintain physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing
3. how to manage risks to physical and emotional health and wellbeing
4. ways of keeping physically and emotionally safe
5. about managing change, including puberty, transition and loss
6. how to make informed choices about health and wellbeing and to recognise sources
of help with this
7. how to respond in an emergency
8. to identify different influences on health and wellbeing

Core Theme 2: Relationships
Pupils should be taught:
1. how to develop and maintain a variety of healthy relationships, within a range of social/cultural contexts
2. how to recognize and manage emotions within a range of relationships
3. how to recognize risky or negative relationships including all forms of bullying and abuse
4. how to respond to risky or negative relationships and ask for help
5. how to respect equality and diversity in relationships.


Core Theme 3: Living in the wider world – Economic wellbeing and being a
responsible citizen

Pupils should be taught:
1. about respect for self and others and the importance of responsible behaviours and actions
2. about rights and responsibilities as members of families, other groups and ultimately as citizens
3. about different groups and communities
4. to respect equality and to be a productive member of a diverse community
5. about the importance of respecting and protecting the environment
6. about where money comes from, keeping it safe and the importance of managing it effectively
7. how money plays an important part in people’s lives
8. a basic understanding of enterprise.

We teach PSHE and Citizenship in a variety of ways. These activities include the playing of

co-operative games, circle time sessions, role play and use of story and picture books. PSHE is very often taught within other curriculum areas such as Geography and RE. PSHE will also be addressed through everyday occurrences in the classroom. Members of staff will cover certain areas as they become applicable to the development of individuals and class groups and follow the school procedures and policies, which have been developed as a result of consultation between governors, the local authority, health professionals, parents and staff.
