Wellington Primary Schools believe in educating the ‘whole child’. This means not only teaching the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in academia, but also helping our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society and the community around them. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.
The intent of our PSHE curriculum is to deliver a syllabus which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they know more, remember more, and understand more. As a result of this they will become healthy, independent, and responsible members of a society who understand how they are developing personally and socially and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. We provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. At Wellington Primaries, we use 1Decision as our core programme to deliver PSHE. To ensure full understanding in this vital curriculum area, we also use materials from Jigsaw and The PSHE Association where teachers feel more in-depth knowledge is required.
