Welcome to Easterside Academy

"Giving the Chance to Shine"

The PSHCE Curriculum

Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education

“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:

‘All schools should make provision for personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), drawing on good practice.’
PSHE (like SMSC) is embedded throughout daily life at Easterside Academy. We model positive relationships, self image and communication skills with others in all our day-to-day interactions, as well as teaching skills explicitly in Circle Time and in P.S.H.E. lessons.
As part of our PSHE curriculum at Easterside Academy we use SEAL.

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:

  • New Beginnings- Sept/ Oct
  • Getting on and Falling out- Nov/ Dec
  • Going for Goals – Jan/ Feb
  • Good to be Me – Feb/Mar
  • Relationships -Apr/ May
  • Changes – June/ July

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!
