PSHE & HRE
To help pupils to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to manage life’s challenges and make the most of life’s opportunities. We will ensure that the children of Hapton are equipped with the skills and knowledge that they need to tackle the ‘real world.’ Our Christian values will be taught alongside our PSHE to enable the children to be the best they can be.
We at Hapton, aim to ensure that the children in the EYFS;
- Are confident to speak to others about own needs, wants, interests and opinions
- Can describe self in positive terms and talk about abilities
- Understand that own actions affect other people, for example, becomes upset or tries to comfort another child when they realise they have upset them.
- Are aware of the boundaries set, and of behavioural expectations in the setting
- Are beginning to be able to negotiate and solve problems without aggression
We at Hapton, aim to ensure that the children in KS1 and KS2;
- Understand British Values
- Make healthy choices about lifestyle and themselves
- Have positive relationships
- Support their own well-being
We will achieve the above through following our PSHE curriculum which focuses on the above strands and develops them more accordingly with the age range of children. Children are taught PSHE as a stand-alone subject once a fortnight and also discreetly through other subjects too, for example; healthy eating in Science, yoga in PE and computing through e-safety. At Hapton we have had e-safety evenings where we invite parents in to discuss their children’s safety and well-being whilst online at home. Our Family Learning Mentor is aware of our children’s individual needs and therefore addresses any concerns we may have about a child’s personal, social and emotional well-being.
Our children at Hapton will be well rounded individuals with positive well being and mental health. They will have instilled a love and passion to help others and care for their world around them. Making positive relationships will be second nature through a love of wanting to care for and help others. Growing up in Britain, children will have an understanding of their British values and what it means to be British but also having the tolerance for all cultures, race and beliefs. Children in Hapton in particular will understand what it means to grow up in a small village in Lancashire and how to compare their lives to others in the wider world.
