While it is acknowledged that a child’s development and growth takes place within the context of their families and communities, our school recognises its responsibility to promote the personal development and well-being of every child attending Studley Green Primary School. It is our intent that PSHE education in our school will become the foundation for a life-long learning process which will enable pupils to develop positive attitudes towards themselves and others. Through the acquisition of knowledge, skills and positive characteristics taught in PSHE it is our desire that every pupil thrive as individuals and as members of their communities. We will prepare them to play an active and informed role as responsible citizens, to respect others and develop positive, healthy relationships. It is our intention that they are prepared to deal with the physical and emotional changes which occur in adolescence and recognise when they need help and to be able to ask for support if necessary. By the time they leave our school we would like them to be confident and aspirational for their futures.
The PSHE curriculum at Studley Green Primary School has been developed in line with recommended themes identified in the ‘Wiltshire Children’s Charter for the Teaching of PSHE’. We subscribe to The Corum Life Education SCARF programme and to the PSHE Association, using a combination of resources and lesson plans to enhance the delivery of our scheme of work. The progression of themes across a two year scheme of work has been developed to provide a broad, up to date curriculum which never the less allows for adequate depth and flexibility to meet the needs of our pupils.
From September, 2020 it is a statutory requirement for Primary schools to teach Relationships Education. In all schools Health Education is now a compulsory part of the PSHE curriculum as specified in the DfE’s New Curriculum document (July 2019).
Studley Green Primary School recognises that parents and carers are the prime educators for children on many of these matters and it is a school's responsibility is to complement and reinforce this role. Relationships Education is therefore taught with respect for the backgrounds and beliefs of pupils and parents whilst ensuring pupils are provided with knowledge relating to the Law.
It is our commitment to work with parents in ensuring that our PSHE curriculum is relevant and fulfils our statutory requirement to meet the needs of pupils and their communities. We welcome parents to come into school to look in more detail at the PSHE curriculum; please make an appointment with your child’s class teacher or Mrs Andriopoulou, PSHE lead teacher.
Please read the Sex and relationship education policy in conjunction with the PSHE policy.
World Street Food Market
As part of a whole School focus on money and enterprise, Studley Green Primary School held its first World Street Food Market. Every class chose a country to represent with some kind of street food. The event was a real celebration of all the hard work the classes had put into making their businesses a success. It was a wonderful opportunity for all age groups to learn about how money works in our everyday lives, to learn about the role of banks and how we to take care of and budget our own money.
Nearly all of the businesses had got their maths right and made a healthy profit on their sales. All of the financial loans were paid back to the Bank of Studley Green School and the classes can now decide whether to use their profits to buy something for their class or to give it to charity.
If you supported this event, thank you for attending and being excellent customers! We hope you enjoyed the wide range of wonderful flavours and textures of the food the children were selling.
