PSHE

 

Our vision for PSHE at Whitehall Park School is for every child to be equipped with skills through high quality teaching to support their social, spiritual, moral, and cultural development.

PSHE is taught through a detailed and comprehensive scheme called Jigsaw. This includes statutory Relationships and Health Education, in a spiral, progressive and fully planned scheme of work. It gives children relevant learning experiences to help them navigate their world and to develop positive relationships with themselves and others.

At Whitehall Park, we prepare our children for life, helping them to really know and value who they are and understand how they relate to other people in this ever-changing world.

We teach with a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. We believe it is important to educate and raise awareness of key topics such as anti-bullying week, e-safety, and road safety to highlight ways of preventing and responding. We also believe it is important to consistently celebrate each other’s achievements. Every Friday we hold a Celebration Assembly where we recognise any special achievements, awards, or events. This supports us in building a strong community at Whitehall Park.  We have weekly mindfulness assemblies where the children practice breathing exercises.
