PSHE is taught through our scheme of work that is based on the PSHE Association scheme. PSHE education is a school subject through which our children develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to keep themselves healthy and safe, and prepared for life and work. We know this has an impact on both academic and non-academic outcomes for our children, particularly the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.
PSHE at Corby Glen aims to develop skills and attributes such as resilience, self-esteem, risk-management, teamworking and critical thinking in the context of three core themes: health and wellbeing, relationships and living in the wider world including economic wellbeing.
The mental health and well-being of our children is a high priority for us and we promote the 5 steps to well being with our children. Mrs Whadcock is a Mental Health First Aider and Majella is a trained ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) who can offer additional support if children are experiencing emotional difficulties.
Relationship and Sex Education is also taught throughout each year group in our school at an age appropriate level so that our children leave us well informed about their own bodies and how they will change, their relationships with friends and family, and how to keep themselves physically and emotionally safe. Our RSE policy that was worked through with our parent working group, can be found in the policy section.
