PSHE/ Citizenship

  • PSHE/Citizenship education runs through every aspect of life at Woodeaton Manor School and is delivered by staff working as part of a multi professional team to support pupils. Pupil voice is key and pupils are given extensive opportunity and encouragement to contribute.
     
  • Twice-daily circle times provide opportunities to focus on a range of discussion topics, model positive attitudes, share values, and celebrate achievements.
     
  • Values led learning, beginning with the very youngest pupils,taps into the intrinsic goodness and willingness of all of us to support and help. The values chosen are those that pupils feel are important. Pupils “buy in” because they understand it and believe in its ability to change attitudes and approaches.
     
  • Each term, a SEAL target for each pupil is included on his/her I.E.P. The social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL) programme is designed to promote the development and application of social and emotional skills under five key areas: Self-awareness; Self-regulation (managing feelings); Motivation; Empathy; and Social skills.

 

PSHE/Citizenship education is a planned, developmental programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the futureand prepare them to play a full and active part in society.

As part of a whole-school approach at Woodeaton Manor School, PSHE education develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.

PSHE education at Woodeaton Manor School equips pupils to live healthy, safe, productive, capable, responsible and balanced lives. It encourages them to be enterprising and supports themin making effective transitions, positive learning and career choices and in achieving economic wellbeing. A critical component of PSHE education is providingopportunities for children and young people to reflect on and clarify their own values and attitudes and explore the complex and sometimes conflicting range ofvalues and attitudes they encounter now and in the future.

PSHE education at Woodeaton Manor School contributes to personal development by helping pupils to build their confidence, resilience and self-esteem, and to identify and manage risk, makeinformed choices and understand what influences their decisions. It enables them to recognise, accept and shape their identities, to understand andaccommodate difference and change, to manage emotions and to communicate constructively in a variety of settings. Developing an understanding of themselves, empathy and the ability to work with others will help pupils to form and maintain good relationships, develop the essential skills for futureemployability and better enjoy and manage their lives.

Citizenship lessons, with an emphasis on British Values, foster pupils’ awareness and understanding of democracy, government and how laws are made and upheld. Teaching equips pupils with the skills and knowledge to explore political and social issues critically, to weigh evidence, debate and make reasoned arguments. It prepares pupils to take their place in society as responsible citizens, manage their money well and make sound financial decisions.

 

The national curriculum for citizenship aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

  • acquire a sound knowledge and understanding of how the United Kingdom is governed, its political system and how citizens participate actively in its democratic systems of government
     
  • develop a sound knowledge and understanding of the role of law and the justice system in our society and how laws are shaped and enforced
     
  • develop an interest in, and commitment to, participation in volunteering as well as other forms of responsible activity, that they will take with them into adulthood
     
  • are equipped with the skills to think critically and debate political questions, to enable them to manage their money on a day-to-day basis, and plan for future financial needs.

Citizenship at Keystage 2

Key themes:

During key stage 2 pupils learn about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experiences and ideas, and as members of their communities.

They become more mature, independent and self-confident.

They learn about the wider world and the interdependence of communities within it.

They develop their sense of social justice and moral responsibility and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national or global issues and political and social institutions.

They learn how to take part more fully in school and community activities.

As they begin to develop into young adults, they face the changes of puberty and transfer to secondary school with support and encouragement from their school.

They learn how to make more confident and informed choices about their health and environment; to take more responsibility, individually and as a group, for their own learning; and to resist bullying.
