In the early years and primary phase at Harleston Sancroft Academy we believe that high-quality and engaging personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE) lessons enable our children to flourish and become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. Our overarching aim is to provide our children with opportunities to understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up. Through our knowledge-rich, vocabulary-driven and skills-based curriculum, the children will be provided with opportunities to explore, clarify and if necessary challenge, their own and others’ values, attitudes and beliefs. PSHE (life skills) in the early years and primary phase is underpinned by our purpose for education, which is to enable all pupils to flourish and grow. Our values (hope, perseverance, wisdom, love, respect & faith) provide a consistent narrative throughout our curriculum model. We provide opportunities for children to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Our children are encouraged to develop their sense of self-worth by playing a positive role in contributing to school life. They will also acquire the skills and strategies they need in order to live healthy, safe, fulfilling, responsible and balanced lives in modern Britain.
