“PSHE education is a planned programme of learning through which children and young people acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives. As part of a whole school approach, PSHE develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.” The PSHE Association
In September 2014, the DfE published a new National Curriculum. Whilst PSHE education remains a non-statutory subject, section 2.5 of the National Curriculum framework document states that:
SEAL is a teaching programme (social and emotional aspects of learning), which helps the children in their personal, social and emotional development. It brings together work we have been teaching in our PSHE curriculum and each term we teach a topic across the whole school. These topics are:
SEAL will help children to develop self-awareness, motivation, social skills and managing their feelings. These skills will help our children to become better learners, get on better with other people and be responsible citizens. They are part of every area of life.
Coverage of these areas, and our PSHE curriculum, alongside our ‘Life Skills’ already embedded here at Easterside Academy, aim to ensure that we produce well-rounded, happy and healthy children – ready for the wider world!
