What is the intent of our PSHE curriculum?
At St Margaret’s Church of England Junior School we use Twinkl Life’s PSHE and Citizenship scheme. This scheme equips children with essential skills for life, ensuring that they live life in all its fullness and grow and achieve in God’s love. It intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to protect and enhance their wellbeing. Children will learn how to stay safe and healthy, build and maintain successful relationships and become active citizens, responsibly participating in society around them, which links with our Christian vision.
Twinkl Life PSHE and Citizenship units aim to cover a wide range of the social and emotional aspects of learning, enabling children to develop their identity and self-esteem as active, confident members of their community. The themes and topics support social, moral, spiritual and cultural development and provide children with protective teaching on essential safeguarding issues, developing their knowledge of when and how they can ask for help. The scheme of work fulfils the requirements of 2020 Statutory Relationships and Health Education, setting these learning intentions in the context of a broad and balanced PSHE curriculum.
