  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

 

PSHE (known as Personal, Social and Emotional Development within the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum) promotes the development of the individual, providing opportunities for children to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes which enable them to become effective members of the School and prepare them for active citizenship in adult life.  At Belmont, we encourage our children to grow to understand themselves and others and play a positive role in contributing to the life of the School and the wider community.  In so doing, we help to develop their sense of self worth, independence and ability to make healthy lifestyle choices.  We teach them about rights and responsibilities.  They learn to appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse multicultural society. 

 

This area of the curriculum directly addresses the teaching and learning of the School's values and is part of our proactive approach to safeguarding children and promoting equality.  It includes specific teaching on themes such as respect, healthy relationships and keeping oneself safe. It ensures that children develop their understanding of morality and the social skills to engage in learning alongside their peers. It underpins the School's code of conduct and expectations for behaviour.  It also helps children to prepare for the next stage in their education and ultimate employment.

 

PSHE teaching is ongoing and often occurs outside the dedicated lessons, which take place each week as well as in specific units.  These units include age-appropriate focuses on Anti-Bullying and Respect, Sex and Relationships Education and Drugs, Alcohol and Tobacco Education.
