PSHE

We know that through teaching PSHE we give our pupils the knowledge, skills and understanding that they need to lead confident, healthy, independent lives and to become informed, active and responsible citizens.

Our bespoke PSHE curriculum includes teaching about physical health, emotional health and mental wellbeing, drug education (including alcohol and tobacco), relationships education (RSE), citizenship, anti-bullying and safety in the environment in an age appropriate way.

We believe that through participating in PSHE, our pupils will become adults who make sensible choices when faced with issues that are part of growing up. We help children to focus on developing social skills such as managing friendships and developing empathy and self-respect. Our teaching encourages pupils to develop positive attitudes and values including an acceptance of diversity and difference.

PSHE is taught in specific lessons but is also fundamental to the whole ethos of Upper Beeding Primary School. The teaching of PSHE can be seen throughout the whole of the school day in every area of school life.

Each year a group of Year 5 and 6 children take part in the Chanctonbury Challenge. This is a locality initiative set up by the schools to get children enjoying learning outside and working together.
