PSHE at Tower Road Academy
At Tower Road Academy, PSHE is an embedded part of our broad and balanced curriculum. Our weekly PSHE lessons enable our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of society. By merging aspects of Jigsaw’s progressive and sequenced programme with the needs and context of our own school, we provide knowledge and skill development that is consistent and clear, as the whole school works on the samelearning theme at the same time.
Our PSHE curriculum equips children with relevant and meaningful content, which is supported through a strong emphasis on emotional literacy, building resilience and nurturing mental and physical health. Cultural capital is at the heart of each PSHE lesson, helping students to understand and navigate a rapidly changing 21st Century world. Citizenship at school, community, national and global levels are integral, as is personal development, creativity and celebrating achievement.
How do we implement PSHE at Tower Road?
Weekly lessons, assemblies and celebrations (which focus on positive behaviour, character attributes and values), and opportunities to celebrate learning through songs, all work together to provide multiple opportunities for children to grow and develop into the best version of themselves, regardless of background, ability and additional needs. Our PHSE curriculum follows six half-termly themes that run throughout the school from EYFS to Y6.
· Being Me in My World
· Celebrating Difference
· Dreams and Goals
· Healthy Me
· Changing Me
The approach to our PSHE curriculum is as follows:
