1. Overall subject intent
JCSC’s PSHE scheme of work aims to equip our young people with essential skills for life; it intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes young people need to protect and enhance their wellbeing. Through these lessons, our young people will learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in society around them. Successful PSHE curriculum coverage is a vital tool in preparing young people for life in society now and in the future. Lessons in this scheme of work have their foundations in seeing each and everybody’s value in society, from appreciation of.
At JCSC PSHE units aim to cover a wide range of the social and emotional aspects of learning, enabling our young people to develop their identity and self-esteem as active, confident members of their community.
The themes and topics support social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide our young people with protective teaching on essential safeguarding issues, developing their knowledge of when and how they can ask for help.
JCSC’s PSHE resources are fully in line with the Learning Outcomes and Core Themes provided by the PSHE Association Programme of Study which is widely used by schools in England and is recommended and referred to by the DfE in all key documentation relating to PSHE provision in schools.
This scheme of work covers all of the required objectives and follows the three core areas of Health and Wellbeing, Relationships and Living in the Wider World. The scheme of work fulfils the requirements of 2020 Statutory Relationships and Health Education, setting these learning intentions in the context of a broad and balanced PSHE curriculum.
