PSHE & RSE
PSHE education is a school subject through which pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepare for life and work in modern Britain. Evidence shows that well-delivered PSHE programmes have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
Our PSHE lessons aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, team working and critical thinking in the context of learning grouped into three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world (including economic wellbeing and aspects of careers education).
The national curriculum also states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice’. The Relationships and Health aspects of PSHE education will be compulsory in all schools from 2020.

At Britannia, we use the PSHE Association, SCARF resources and 1Decision to deliver a range of fun, informative and engaging PSHE lessons for our children. The lessons have been carefully planned and mapped out as a staff and we deliver the curriculum that is statutory but also approrpriate for our children. Our PSHE lessons are taught weekly but the key knowledge and skills are also interwoven into daily life at Britannia.
In Autumn term, the whole school is learning about 'Me and My Relationships' and 'Valuing Difference'. The yearly overview shows how the learning progresses through the year groups.
In Spring term, we will be thinking about 'Keeping Ourselves Safe'.
The week beginning 16th November was Anti-Bullying Week. The key message for the week was 'One Kind Word'. All the classes learnt about bullying, how to spot bullying behaviour and how to ask for help. We thought about being kind to others and how using just one kind word or action can have a positive impact on some one elses life. We had a 'wacky non-uniform day' to think about celebrating being different. Year's 4, 5 and 6 had an Anti-Bullying workshop and used VR technology to experience different scenarios linked to bullying.
'The VR workshop was fun because we got to experience what it would be like to be bullied. It made me feel sad to think others have experienced this in real life' Annie Y5
'I really liked the VR because we never get a chance to use things like this. It was quite upsetting how we saw that some people go through bullying. I learnt that people need to stop bullying and most people just bully because they have something going on in their own lives and it makes them feel more powerful.' Alex Y5
