PHSE 2021

PHSE at Broadstone Hall Primary School

At Broadstone Hall Primary School, Physical, Health and Social Education (PHSE), Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural education (SMSC) and well-being, behaviour and safety are very important parts of our school’s ethos and the staff recognise this.

SMSC is developed through a wide variety of approaches including PHSE, circle time, assembly themes based on the Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning(SEAL) and British Values programmes, special visitors, golden rules and the school’s motto and mission statements.

The government set out its definition of ‘British values’ in the ‘Prevent Strategy’ (2011), which was designed to prevent the extremism and religious radicalization of young people.

British values are considered by the present government to be democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. The promotion of ‘British values’ is important to our school because British values have their origin in the democratic values of our nation.

Pupils are encouraged to use these values and develop a sense of responsibility through the work of the school council, eco council, Restorative Approach ambassadors, junior sports coaches and class monitors. The annual school charity is chosen by the school council and all pupils work towards supporting this in a variety of ways.

 The important elements of PHSE that are used at our school in in all aspects of the pupils work and their daily interactions with each other are as follows:

  1. The PHSE Curriculum has been completely redesigned for September 2021, in line with new guidance from the Department for Education, which makes PHSE a statutory subject again.
  2. Relationships and Sex Education is taught in the summer term Y1 –Y6 using the agreed Stockport Syllabus and the new PHSE curriculum from the DfE.
  3. Drug and Alcohol awareness is taught as a discrete set of lessons when they come up in Science and PHSE long term plans for Y3-Y5.
  4. Puberty is taught in Y5 as part of the Science Curriculum.
  5. Since September 2017, teachers have been using circle time as a weekly focus for the PHSE syllabus, the Restorative Approach to behaviour and for the development of emotional language and intelligence. Some lessons also use British Values as a focus for discussion.
  6. RA "Restorative Resolvers" in Y6 were developed in 2016 and are overseen annually by Mrs Marron, the Restorative Approach lead.
  7. “Beat the Bell” is used as an incentive for better attendance and will be collated by the office staff.
  8. Anti-bullying week takes place as a school focus each autumn and is called” Friendship Week.”
  9. E-Safety week is marked every year with a set of events based around computing lessons from YR to Y6.
  10. The PHSE co-ordinator Mrs Marron, liaises with the Stockport Service to keep up to date with any developments in Citizenship and PHSE.
  11. We use the local authority PHSE and safeguarding service for visits, staff training and parental talks, when they are available.
  12. We completed a document that sets out our expectations for Broadstone Hall pupils in terms of behaviour and attitude around school and this is being updated in September 2021 for use around school.
  13. The PHSE policy has been updated to reflect these practices.
