Robin Hood Primary School

"Success is in the journey, not the destination; we are all learners"


Within PSHE, pupils develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage their lives, now and in the future. These vital skills help children to stay healthy, safe, prepare them for life, and work within the wider society. Children are taught ways to manage their feelings and behaviour in difficult situations and ways to develop and maintain healthy relationships with themselves and others. PSHE is an import ant subject to teach, it is vital if pupils are to learn how to keep safe and healthy in an ever changing world.


At Robin Hood Primary School, we follow the You, Me and PSHE and Mind Mate schemes of work.


At Robin Hood Primary School, PSHE underpins our schools vision and ethos and is a crucial factor in the development of our children. We strongly value pupil voice and participation, and ensure there are clear structures to capture pupils’ opinions and opportunities to influence decisions made across school. Our curriculum enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We aim to provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child. We aim to build on prior knowledge to ensure we are offering a curriculum, which is progressive and is building upon previous learning. 


Our PSHE curriculum, ‘You, Me and PSHE’ and Mind Mate’ have a wide range of child-centred activities to ensure the learning is enjoyable, purposeful and appropriate for all pupils. The scheme of work is progressive and sequenced which allows for skills to be built upon and recapped each year. Our scheme of work contains both formative and summative assessment opportunities that support teachers to assess PSHE knowledge, and how these are applied within social and emotional skills development. Within the timetable, PSHE is taught weekly as a focused lesson and is discretely integrated into each day.


The impact of our PSHE curriculum will allow children to develop positive and healthy relationships with themselves and others within the wider school community, both now and in the future. The progression of skills will allow pupils to be positive and emotionally resilient individuals who will become respectful members of society having learnt these key skills and being able to apply them to different situations. Pupils will learn ways to keep themselves and others safe and will learn a good understanding of what is rightfully wrong and right within the wider society. 


At Robin Hood Primary School, our curriculum teaches pupils skills, enabling them to be happy, safe members of the school community and wider society. The You, Me and PSHE scheme of work is progressive and sequential and provides children with the opportunity to develop and grow mentally, physically and emotionally, whilst preparing pupils with life skills for later in life. Across school, pupils are provided with opportunities to build their cultural capital to help them to become respectful members of society.
