Our PSHE and RSE curriculum is a bespoke offer that blends a range of high-quality programs and delivery partners to create a truly individual, supported and innovative curriculum. Through the delivery of key skills, knowledge and strategies that support our pupils physically and mentally our children will be equipped to deal with the challenges of modern day life and ultimately be prepared for adulthood.

PSHE 

The aims of personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education in our school are to embed our values and school ethos to the core of our PSHE curriculum.

School life at Grange Park Primary School is driven by its values. Our 4 key principles capture what we are about; we believe that a happy child is a successful one. At Grange Park we believe in: 'Putting Children First!’ - this is our vision. Our school aims link with our intent of our PSHE curriculum:

Aims

Community- Working together to develop a culture in which the wellbeing of our children and families is at the heart of all we do.

Inclusion- Providing a learning environment where all can achieve their personal best.

Ambition- Setting an expectation for our children to aim high and strive to succeed; creating life-long learners.

Mindfulness- Educating our children to be supportive of themselves and others; developing empathy and shaping themselves into well rounded future citizens.

In order to do this, we have split our PSHE curriculum into the following categories: Health and Wellbeing (Mindfulness), Living in the Wider World (Ambition and Community) and Relationships/RSHE (Inclusion). Our main intent is that we deliver a high-quality curriculum which is tailored to our school community: putting children first.

My Happy Mind

Our mental health curriculum is led through ‘myHappymind’ which is an award winning program for schools and nurseries, families and organisations. It teaches preventative habits that support positive mental health, resilience and self-esteem. All of the concepts taught are based on science and research and grounded in neuroscience and positive psychology. The program is backed by the NHS. due to the incredible impact the program has on reducing CAMHS referrals along with the overall improvements to the wellbeing of children, staff and parents. Our pupils love learning all about their brain and how to cope in a range of challenging situations.

Raising Aspirations with Positive Footprints

Children as young as seven make career decisions based on people they know. They also begin to form stereotypical opinions around certain careers. For some children, this can have a huge impact on their future aspirations, and they rule out certain careers before leaving primary school. At Grange Park, we want to change that.

We believe that everyone has the right to do what they love and should be given every opportunity to succeed, so we are working with Postive Footprints to deliver their Raising Aspirations programme. They work with government bodies, the education sector and industry and business leaders to produce a careers-led learning programme that enables children  to discover their potential, build resilience, develop employability skills and explore the world of work.

In addition to classroom-based learning, career carousel events bring people from local businesses/careers and our school together, opening up the world of work and making a real difference to the aspirations of young people. We were very proud to work with Gentoo to deliver our first career carousel at Grange Park alongside the vast array of career based trips, visitors and events our school takes parts in throughout the year.
