PSHE & Relationships

PSHE & Relationships:

An holistic approach is taken in supporting the children’s wellbeing and health at Folkestone Primary; including their mental health. Each year group has a safe space area, which all children are able to access and resources have been purchased for each year group, to support the children’s wellbeing when in school.

Through our PSHE curriculum, the children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need in order to keep themselves healthy and safe, prepared for life as well as nurturing their aspirations toward future career choices. These lessons have an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for pupils. We aim to develop skills and attributes such as resilience through growth mindset, self-esteem and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world. We follow the National Curriculum guidance that states that ‘all schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education’ (PSHE). The PSHE Association’s vision and curriculum is followed, yet adapted in order to suit the emerging needs of the children as they grow and move up through the school.
