PSHE & RSE

Heartsmart (PSHE & RSE)
 
At St.Peter's our Personal, Social, Health Education/Relationships, Sex Education curriculum is taught through the Heartsmart Programme. We have a focused session each week although the principles are embedded into much of our curriculum.
 
For more information on RSE please look in Key Info/Policies on our website for our full RSE Policy.
 
HeartSmart is a creative approach to delivering the PSHE and RSE Curriculum that primary schools use to build character, emotional health and resilience in children. It equips them with foundational principles, skills, habits and a mindset that will improve their mental health, relationships and academic achievement.

Boris, HeartSmart’s very own purpose-built Robot, provides a fun, interactive and dynamic way for children to explore their hearts, the very thing that makes them unique.

Heartsmart follows five main principles that the children review each week. We focus on a different one each half term:
Heartsmart fits in with many aspects of our RE curriculum and there is a linked bible verse for every session.

Please follow the links below for more information and how you can help your child be ‘Heartsmart’ at home.

Heartsmart Curriculum Content
 
Please find below all of our long term plans for the content of our Heartsmart programme which covers all the necessary objectives for the teaching of PSHE and RSE. At St.Peter's, we use a number of books which support these objectives in a sensitive and age-appropriate way.

Mental Health Champions

 

Mental health at St.Peter's is very much a priority. We have recognised the impact that Covid-19 has had on our children and have provided workshops which promote mental health and educate pupils as part of the new compulsory PSHE curriculum.

These workshops have already taken place for our older children and by the end of September, 2021 all our children from Year 1 – Year 6 will have become mental health champions!

 The idea behind the Mental Health Champion workshops is that children are given the opportunity to learn and experience:

  • What mental health is and what factors can affect it.
  • The differences between good mental health and poor mental health.
  • How to recognise the signs of poor mental health and how to seek help.
  • How to take daily care for their own mental health and manage stress using a variety of evidenced based best strategies.
  • Encouragement to support the mental health of other children in the school.
