Personal, Social, Health Education

PSHCE Curriculum Statement

We teach a full citizenship programme from nursery to year 6. It covers all aspects of the children’s social, personal, emotional and health education. The children have circle time every week, where children explore their thinking about various topics. There is an ethos statement for every week which children will discuss in class and assembly. Children are taught road safety, water safety and to do basic emergency first aid.

Throughout their time at Bowling Green Academy, children are constantly given opportunities to develop resilience, self- motivation, cooperation with others and their own aspirations, tools that will enable them to leave our school ready for their next stage of education.

Our curriculum is adaptable and inclusive and follows a spiral curriculum, which means that children re-visit key themes and questions as they go through school. This spiral curriculum also ensures that key issues are addressed in an age appropriate way. Bowling Green Academy also involves outside agencies such as Baranardos,, the NSPCC and the local police force who can better educate the children in certain aspects of our curriculum.

We will endeavour for our children to leave school well equipped for the emotional challenges they may face by providing them with the building blocks needed for positive and safe relationships, including with family, friends and online. In this way, we will ensure that we help to nurture confident, independent and resilient individuals.
