At Thorpe Primary School, we see PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic education) and Citizenship as being at the centre of teaching and learning for our pupils. It has positive influences on the ethos, learning and relationships within school and therefore receives the full commitment of the school community including our teachers, teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors and governors. We combine explicit teaching of the elements with ensuring that our ethos and all elements of our curriculum and wider offer develop children to be the global citizens of the future.
As a school we follow the Cambridgeshire Personal Primary Development program, which ensures the children build on their PSHE skills throughout their time in our school. The scheme uses real life scenarios to bring this learning to life and lessons are active, engaging, collaborative and centre around questions and discussions. Below you will find our long term plan, which shows you what the children will be focusing on in each half term. As well as framework for each Key Stage that maps out the key questions children should be able to answer following the teaching and learning that has taken place.
Throughout the year the children also take part in whole school PSHE focus weeks. These include Anti-Bullying Week and First Aid. For more information about Anti-Bullying and First Aid teaching in schools you can explore the websites below:
