Our Curriculum Intent:
Our curriculum provides the knowledge, skills and learning experiences to prepare all children to become positive global citizens
Our Curriculum Goals:
At Greenholm Primary School, personal, social and health education (PSHE) supports our children to become independent, self-assured and responsible members of our community who are equipped to contribute as positive global citizens.
Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies (PATHS)
All KS1 children take part in weekly PATHS lessons which are designed to facilitate the development of self-control, self-esteem, peer relationships, emotional awareness, and interpersonal problem-solving skills. The purpose of the PATHS program is to enable our children to have a set of skills, which help them to become confident children who understand their emotions, the emotions of others and the effect they have on their peers.
Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL)
All KS2 children participate in weekly SEAL lessons that develop the underpinning qualities and skills that help promote positive behavior and effective learning. The SEAL curriculum focuses on five social and emotional aspects of learning: self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy, and social skills. This helps all pupils to be confident, competent and well-balanced individuals who are positive, motivated global citizens who value learning and achieve well.
Nurture groups of between 6 – 8 children take place in ‘The Den’. This Nurture room is designed to be a bridge between home and school and therefore a space where children can feel safe and secure. This will then support the children to develop their individual needs further. The purpose of nurture groups are to revisit learning and social skills to support our children’s social and emotional development further.
Teaching of PSHE
At Greenholm, we believe that PSHE is an important part of the primary school curriculum and is taught weekly. This ensures that the full curriculum of PSHE and RSE are taught in each year group as it is in an integral part of children’s development. Additionally, PSHE plays a role in our whole school assemblies and phase assemblies.
We are confident that our children are given the opportunity to develop their PHSE skills both in and outside of the lessons. We have many different areas of PSHE that occur in our school regularly such as: the Citizenship project taken in years 5 and 6; school council meetings, school trips, ‘Rights Knights’, sports tournaments and our Eco Council.
