'Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce back'
Personal, Social and Health Education
At St Francis Catholic Primary School we aim to promote healthy, independent and responsible members of society. We encourage all our pupils to play a positive role in contributing to school life and the wider community through class & school councils, fundraising events, supporting nominated charities and involvement in community activities. Our whole school approach to PSHE ensures every child has the opportunity to build upon their skills, so children have the opportunity to reach their full potential both academically and socially.
PSHE helps to give pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to lead a confident, healthy independent life and become informed, active, responsible citizens.
This will be achieved through:
- The whole curriculum
- Pastoral Care and Support within school
- Religious Education, following ‘The Way, The Truth and The Life’ scheme.
- You, Me and PSHE (A whole school approach to PSHE)
- Educational visits from specialists for example, D-Side and ChildLine
- Circle time sessions based on ‘Statements to Live By’ developed by the Leeds Diocese
- Specific guidance from health specialists and others, including Healthy Schools Aims
During Anti-Bullying week we looked at Respect and how we can demonstrate respect to each other.
In KS1 and EYFS we looked at how we can show both respect and our commitment to Anti-Bullying. We did this by making friendship potions and signing Anti-Bullying charters with our hands using the ideas we gathered.
In KS2 we looked at cyber bullying and the impact this can have. We created Anti-Bullying posters to prevent cyber-bullying.
We all shared our learning in a whole school assembly; the children enjoyed showing their work and seeing what others had produced across the school.
Below is a slideshow of just some of our Anti-bullying week creations!
