PSHE / P4C / Circle Time

Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

 PSHE (like Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural [SMSC] learning) is embedded throughout daily life at Greenleaf. We model positive relationships, self image and communication skills with others in all our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in Circle Time and in PSHE. lessons.

The P.S.H.E. curriculum covers 7 major sub-headings:

-Relationships

-Health

-Media

-Careers & work-related learning

-Financial Capability

-Citizenship

-Enrichment Activities

 

Royal Courts of Justice

 

Coverage of these areas aims to ensure that we produce well-rounded, happy and healthy children - ready for the wider world.

 

PSHE is supplemented by our teaching of Philosophy 4 Children (P4C).

P4C is a way to open up children’s learning through enquiry and the exploration of ideas.  Children realise that they don’t always have to be right, have the opportunity to develop their thinking skills and gives all children value.  Children will: 

  • Learn to think before they speak and give reasons for what they say.
  • Value their views and the views of others.
  • Learn respect and negotiation.
  • Learn not to be fearful.

 

P4C is embedded throughout the curriculum, providing lots of ideas for creative writing, and creating an enquiring classroom, particular in subjects such as Science.  P4C impacts on personal skills, and behaviour in the playground, develops skills necessary for positions of responsibility (school council, yellow bibs etc), supports listening and reasoning skills and fosters independence.
