Everyone learns and everyone achieves because everyone matters!


Curriculum intent


At Wigton Moor our PSHE curriculum aims to equip children with essential skills for life; it intends to develop the whole child through carefully planned and resourced lessons that develop the knowledge, skills and attributes children need to protect and enhance their wellbeing. The PSHE curriculum supports the whole school ethos of respect for others and resilience in the face of challenges, underpinning the ethos of the Four C’s- care, courtesy, co-operation and common sense. A broad and balanced PSHE curriculum is an essential tool in preparing children for life in society now and in the future. The lessons in this curriculum are based on mutual respect and the appreciation of others as well as developing a strong sense of self. The themes cover a wide range of the social and emotional aspects of learning, enabling children to develop their identity and self-esteem as confident, active members of society. The curriculum provides pupils with essential education on safeguarding issues, developing pupils awareness of how and when to ask for help and support. The themes are revisited across the Key Stages, enabling children to recall and build upon previous learning in an age appropriate manner. Ground rules are revisited at the start of every lesson, allowing pupils to respond in a safe and supportive environment.
