Personal, Social, Health & Economic Education (PSHEE)

Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education  DFE Guidance Updated 13 September 2021 states: 

"Personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education is an important and necessary part of all pupils’ education. All schools should teach PSHE, drawing on good practice, and this expectation is outlined in the introduction to the proposed new national curriculum.

PSHE is a non-statutory subject. To allow teachers the flexibility to deliver high-quality PSHE we consider it unnecessary to provide new standardised frameworks or programmes of study. PSHE can encompass many areas of study. Teachers are best placed to understand the needs of their pupils and do not need additional central prescription. Schools should seek to use PSHE education to build, where appropriate, on the statutory content already outlined in the national curriculum,  the basic school curriculum and in statutory guidance on: drug education, financial education, sex and relationship education (SRE) and the importance of physical activity and diet for a healthy lifestyle.  Relationships and Health Education (RHE) is an important part of PSHE education. Relationships education is compulsory for all primary school pupils. " 

 The DFE guidance on PSHE can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/personal-social-health-and-economic-education-pshe/personal-social-health-and-economic-pshe-education#personal-social-health-and-economic-education 

At NRPS, PSHEE is a strength.  Our PSHEE Curriculum is woven creatively through the year in a number of different ways.  Through our Kodesh (Jewish Studies) teaching, the children learn core Jewish Values.  The Kodesh Curriculum is strong and promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development well. Pupils learn about, for example, friendship, respecting and valuing people and the difference between right and wrong.

Our school is strong on British Values and our last Ofsted Report in October 2017 noted " The school is effective in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and preparing them for life in modern Britain."

We run a series of workshops for Year 6 on "Growing Up" with an outside speaker.

Our Year 5 and 6 classes participate in residential programmes where they develop social skills away from home. 

At NRPS, outside speakers have made a valuable contribution to our PSHE education programme.  We bring people in during the year to run class-based workshops on themes such as Online Safety, an Annual Remembrance Day Assembly in November, Streetwise and the CST run programmes on Street awareness and personal safety and security as well as a transition workshop for Year 6 before they move to secondary school.   ​

In addition to the above, every Monday afternoon through the year we have an assembly where different PSHEE and RHE topics are explored.   We have covered topics such as friendships and paid tribute to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh on his death aged 99. 

To develop pupil responsibility and leadership,  we have a number of initiatives led by the Deputy Head including the House Captain Leadership Team who have led projects such as the Social Action Project for the Homeless in January 2022.

Our economic education is often in-class activities and also delivered through assemblies as well as links with our JNF partner school in Negev Sinai, Israel.  It also includes the tzedaka (charity) pupils raise during the year for things like the Jewish Care Cake Sale and other charity events including the Camp Simcha Toy Drive for sick children in hospital. 

Children learn about where money comes from, keeping it safe and the importance of managing it effectively.  Children also learn how money plays an important part in people’s lives.  Assemblies also cover economic education.

The NRPS Relationships and Health Education Curriculum can be found here  https://www.nrps.co.uk/curriculum/relationships-and-health-education-rhe -  There are many overlaps with PSHEE as can be seen in the RHE curriculum plan.

Charity - Tzedaka and awareness of others

During the school closure for Covid19, our Year 6 pupils wrote letters and messages to the residents at a Jewish Care home to say how much they were thinking of them at this challenging time being in isolation and unable to have visitors.
