At Elmsleigh School, we are passionate about PSHE and delivering an exciting ‘curriculum for life’ that helps our children to develop the knowledge, skills and unique attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society in modern day Britain.
When children leave Elmsleigh School, our intention is that 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 confident and positive belief in themselves with the realisation that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. Whilst we know that PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future, we also know that from Early Years Foundation Stage all the way to Year 2, PSHE education can help children to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their learning.
Positive mental health and healthy relationships are crucial for children to lead healthy, happy lives and essential for the highest quality learning; therefore, at Elmsleigh Infant and Nursery school, we intend to deliver a broad and balanced curriculum that will support the ‘whole child’ promoting the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of our pupils. In an ever–changing world, it is more important than ever that our children are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors that affect their world. It is also vital that they understand they are never too small or too young make a difference in their world. With positive mental health and well-being at the forefront of our agenda, Elmsleigh children will progress with that core knowledge in mind.
