PSHE Policy

Subject Overview

Teaching and Learning

Our intention is that when children leave Yarlside Academy, they will do so with the knowledge, understanding and emotions to be able to play an active, positive and successful role in today’s diverse society. We want our children to have high aspirations, a belief in themselves and realise that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. In an ever–changing world, it is important that they are aware, to an appropriate level, of different factors which will affect their world and that they learn how to deal with these so that they have good mental health and well-being.

We use ‘Kapow’ as our main resource for planning and implementing our scheme of work.

Our whole school approach consists of 5 areas of learning:

  • Families and relationships;
  • Health and wellbeing;
  • Safety and the changing body;
  • Citizenship;
  • Economic wellbeing.

At Yarlside Academy, PSHE is central to all aspects of school life.  Our children are well behaved, polite, respectful and show empathy towards others.  They have a strong sense of what is right and wrong and know how to keep themselves safe. 

We work with the local community to broaden the children’s experiences and knowledge.
