Our intention is that, when children leave St Anne’s, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it.
Through the delivery of PSHE, we intend to further St Anne’s aims to prepare children for life in modern Britain, developing children’s capacity to nurture their own physical and mental health, develop positive personal values and a moral framework that will guide their decisions and behavior.
Our approach to the teaching of PSHE supports our duties relating to Keeping Children Safe in Education, Equality Act 2010, SEND, promoting fundamental British Values and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development.
PSHE at St Anne’s is implemented using the Cambridgeshire PSHE Service planning programme which is used throughout the school. It covers all areas of the PSHE curriculum, including the statutory Relationships, Sex and Health Education.
PSHE is taught weekly following different topics each half term. These topics develop as the children move through the school with them being taught, on average, every two years (with the exception of statutory subjects such as RSE which are taught yearly). Various cross curricular opportunities are built upon, such as links with ICT (E Safety) and Religious Education.
Below is the long term plan for each year group in the school.
