PSHE & RHSE

PSHE & RHSE Curriculum Statement 

Intent 

At Maltby Lilly Hall Academy, preparing our children to be well-rounded individuals and global citizens is at the heart of what we do. Our intent is that through our PSHE and RSHE curriculum, all children acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life in a diverse society now and in the future. As part of our whole school approach, our curriculum develops the qualities and attributes that children need to manage life’s opportunities, challenges and responsibilities as they grow up, enabling them to thrive as individuals, family members and as active participants in society. By building resilience, self-esteem and empathy, our PSHE and RSHE curriculum can tackle barriers to learning and raise aspirations for our pupils. Our curriculum aims to assist children and young people to prepare for adult life by supporting them through their physical, emotional and moral development, and helping them to understand themselves, respect others and form and sustain healthy relationships. British Values are promoted through the overarching aims and objectives of PSHE by supporting our children to become healthy and responsible members of society, as well as preparing them for life and work in modern Britain. 

Implementation 

At Maltby Lilly Hall Academy, we have opted to follow the RoSIS Scheme of work for PHSE/RSHE.  

The scheme of work includes the following topics: 

CITIZENSHIP 

PERSONAL, SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL EDUCATION 

RELATIONSHIPS, HEALTH & SEX EDUCATION 

British Values 

Emotional Health 

Healthy relationships 

Careers 

Coping Strategies 

Puberty/Growing up 

Financial Education 

Bullying /E-Safety 

Risk Taking /Safety 

Diversity 

Healthy Eating & Physical Activity 

Substance Misuse 

  

  

Tobacco 

Although the scheme of work starts in Year 1 and follows the children through to Year 6, PSHE and citizenship is also taught through the wider curriculum offer in EYFS. 

In our PSHE/RSHE lessons, we encourage our children to discuss and debate. Open learning activities provide an opportunity for pupils to develop their skills, knowledge and attitude. We firmly believe children debating or discussing topics that are current and relevant to them helps practise using specific language whilst talking about their views and feelings can help them develop key skills for their future lives. 

Impact 

By the time our children leave Maltby Lilly Hall Academy, we aim for them to:  

  • be able to approach a range of real life situations and apply their skills and attributes to help navigate themselves through modern life
