PSHE Curriculum Intent

At Bushfield Road Infant School, our intent is to nurture each child, in order to offer them every opportunity to grow and learn. This is achieved through providing a positive and happy environment, an enriched curriculum, and a desire to ensure that each child feels safe and secure. Our staff, both teaching and non-teaching, believe that pupil well-being is one of our priorities, and this extends to supporting children by supporting families. We strongly believe that through ensuring children feel happy, valued and confident we build a secure foundation for lifelong learning.

PSHE is delivered not only through the curriculum but is an underlying aspect of every part of our day. The children are secure in their knowledge of the expectations of the staff and school, of our Golden Rules and of British Values. Our Playground Pals scheme aims to develop confidence and friendship, working to ensure that children feel happy on our playground.

The curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on prior learning.

We have strong links within the local community, with religious leaders regularly visiting school to deliver assemblies, taking part in charity days such as Children in Need, Sport Relief, and being part of the NSPCC campaign “Speak out, stay safe”.

The provision of extra-curricular activities is constantly being reviewed and extended and children are offered places on rotation. We offer activities that some children would not normally experience, such as cookery and gardening clubs which help to build life skills for the future.
