PSHE at Oakwood

Below is an overview of the curriculum for each year group (Years 1-6).


PSHE Intent

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou.

At Oakwood Primary School our intention is to provide a PSHE and RSE curriculum, using the new statutory curriculum and the PSHE association, which reflects our school values and enables our children to become active global citizens, starting with understanding themselves and their school community before branching out to the wider world. PSHE is the development of life skills.

With curiosity and empathy, children are encouraged to challenge their own beliefs and stereotypes to broaden their understanding of the world around them. Learning that we live in a diverse world will allow them to respect the choices and lifestyles of others and help them build healthy relationships. Children will develop their teamwork skills by engaging with their peers to tackle challenging topics, through which they will become more confident in sharing their feelings and ideas. Children will build strength in their ability to risk assess and make informed decisions on health and wellbeing.  

The skills we want to develop through our PSHE curriculum are:

      • empathy
      • identify
      • communication
      • respect
      • resilience
      • pride
      • teamwork 
      • questioning/challenging

We follow some themes across the year in all year groups:

      • Families
      • Friendships
      • Respectful relationships
      • Stereotyping
      • Keeping healthy physically and mentally
      • Keeping safe including basic first aid 
      • E-safety
      • Money
      • Sex education and puberty (Years 4, 5 and 6)
