PSHE & R(S)HE
Our Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education programme of study is based on the the Gloucestershire Healthy Living and Learning (GHLL) curriculum. It has been adapted to meet the needs of the children at Badsey First School.
At Badsey First School, we provide all of our children with knowledge that will enable them to make informed decisions about their well-being, health and relationships. We aim to get children ready to embrace challenges that they may face when they move onto middle school and to help shape them to have a happy and successful adult life. It is our intent to provide high quality curriculum which provides children with a range of enriching opportunities. This encompasses topics such as Healthy Eating, Emotional Health and Well Being, Financial Capability, Drugs (including Alcohol) and RSE (Relationship and Sex Education).
We also incorporate our schools’ values of Be Kind, Be determined, Be Responsible and Be Respectful to our everyday life at Badsey, as we believe theses are the core values we hope our children will carry with them when they leave us at the end of Year 5 as a well-rounded member of the local community.
We also have a whole school focus through the year on Anti-bullying and Mindfulness as well as ongoing programmes led by the pastoral team to support individuals and groups.
How we promote fundamental British Values
Include in suitable parts of the curriculum, as appropriate for the age of pupils, material on the strengths, advantages and disadvantages of democracy, and how democracy and the law works in Britain, in contrast to other forms of government in other countries;
Ensure that all pupils within the school have a voice that is listened to, and demonstrate how democracy works by actively promoting democratic processes such as a school council whose members are voted for by the pupils;
Use opportunities such as general or local elections to hold mock elections to promote fundamental British values and provide pupils with the opportunity to learn how to argue and defend points of view;
Use teaching resources from a wide variety of sources to help pupils understand a range of faiths, and cultures.
